"By train" Jablunkov Transportation Tip by matcrazy1

  TRAIN IN... PARNICA, SLOVAKIA
by matcrazy1
 
 

I travelled from Tychy, Poland to Zilina, Slovakia through Czech by train once so I had to pass through Jablunkov that time. It was quite cheap (I got 50% discount for weekend ticket) but rather slow trip (slower than by car).

But anyway,
train is a good choice in Czech for those who doesn't want to drive a car there. Add travelling by scheduled buses to destinations unreachable by train esp. in southern and southwestern Czech.
There were quite many railway tracks around northern and northeastern Czech. I wanted to take local train somewhere close to Olomouc once but I took... a taxi (for 4 persons it was very good option!). I noticed that local trains were always more expensive, often slower (bad surprice!) but more comfortable than buses.

Jablunkov was located by railway track: Ostrava (airport there - daily flights to/from Prague) - Ceski Tesin (border city with Cieszyn on Polish side of the border) - Zilina, Slovakia.


For both train and bus connections in Czech and Slovak Republic look at: National timetable information system

For both international and domestic trains check your timetable: European train timetable
