Southern Poland's railway carrier Koleje Dolnoslaskie (Lower Silesian Railways) will add to its new train timetable on December 9, 2019, a direct rail connection between southwestern Wroclaw and the Czech capital, Prague.

The route will be operated by trains of the Czech carrier Leo Express, and, on the Polish section, served by the crews of Lower Silesian Railways.

Passengers will be able to use two pairs of trains every weekend, one pair each day. On other days, they will be able to use the connections operating to date with a change in Lichkov and Usti nad Orlici, in the Czech Republic.

The new direct connection will shorten the travel time to Prague from the current five-hour journey with a change to a little over four hours.
