Four thousand tickets for RegioJet’s direct line between Prague and Rijeka sold on Thursday night alone, which surprised the company itself.
RegioJet spokesman Aleš Ondrůj told Jutarnji list that the Czechs’ interest in this line is huge, revealing that the two lines were already sold out in July. He held out the possibility that RegioJet can increase the number of lines during the summer.
Sales were partially driven by, among other things, the operator’s announcement that it will be possible to buy tickets on this line for the price of 22 euros one way, making it one of the cheapest transport connections on the market.
“The interest is really high, so after we sold four thousand tickets on Thursday, we started selling the rest gradually, in order to satisfy the interest of passengers,” Ondrůj said. “By the way, this is the biggest interest and jump in ticket sales recorded throughout history by our reservation system.”
The sale shows that Czechs are definitely interested in a holiday in Croatia and that they perceive our country as safe.

Asked if there is a possibility that the company if the interest remains so high, will increase the weekly number of lines between the Prague and Rijeka, Ondrůj told us that the company will make estimates next week, depending on the pace at which to reserve and sell seats on the train.
As things stand, the line between Prague and Rijeka should run three times a week between June 30 and Sept. 26, with Pardubice, Brno, Bratislava, and Ljubljana on the way from larger cities, which means that the Czech railway the operator reckons that Slovak tourists will also show interest in this line.
The line from Prague to Rijeka will depart on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and the return from Croatia will take place on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Mondays. If they wish, Croats will be able to travel by train this summer.
