A new night train connection is to link the Czech capital with Dresden, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Brussels from 2022, the Czech transport company Regiojet announced late Tuesday.

The company is cooperating with the Dutch start-up European Sleeper.

The trains are to depart from Prague in the evening and arrive in the Belgian capital in the early morning.

In the opposite direction, the trains will leave Brussels in the early evening.

The trains will have seating and sleeping cars. Free internet is also planned.

Regiojet already operates a night train connection between Prague and the eastern Slovakian city of Kosice.

In the course of the year, a connection between Prague and the Ukrainian city of Lviv is to be added.

Before the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Prague was one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.

In 2019, 6.8 million foreign guests visited the so-called “Golden City.”
