There's good news for those hoping for a seaside getaway this summer: Czech Railways announced today it is now selling tickets for night-time trains to north Poland, with prices starting at CZK 578.

Trains will run from Bohumín – to the east of Czechia, very close to the Polish border – to Gdańsk in north Poland and other small towns in the coastal area. Travelers can also reach the sea resorts of Hel and Leba, as well as the city of Gydnia, via the rail service. 

Night trains to Gdańsk will depart from Bohumín daily. One of the services – departing at 7:14 p.m. and arriving in Gdańsk at about 5 a.m. – offers sleeper carriages. The other, which departs about two hours later, does not. For those who’d prefer to travel during the day, a service that departs Bohumín at around 9:30 a.m. is also available.

Buses will also reach the Baltic Sea. From June 2, carrier FlixBus will run a daily service from Florenc Bus Station to Gdańsk – the total journey time is considerably longer, at about 13 hours. Prices start from around CZK 630. FlixBus also offers connections from Prague to north Poland.

According to FlixBus spokesperson Tomáš Beránek, interest in touristic trips to Poland from Czechia has recently increased due to the fact that Croatia – Czechs’ typical choice of coastal holiday – has become markedly more expensive, and Poland offers a more affordable option.
