International Railway Services

Our country’s railway connection to the rest of Europe has a long history and, after a brief hiatus, it was re-established, in May 2014.

The historic rail services “ Acropolis,” “ Hellas Express” and “Attica” of the 90s,  traveling to  Munich, have been replaced today by more flexible services to Sofia and Bucuresti, Skopje and Beograd, from where the passenger may travel onwards to  big European cities, by connection services.

Thus, TRAINOSE is back on “international track” with destinations in the Balkans and connecting services to the rest of Europe, with daily trains and many offers.

The public has welcomed this new service, which is expected to have particular impact during the summer, since Thessaloniki and its broader area constitute a popular tourist destination!

Aiming at providing improved customer services, TRAINOSE facilitates rail  travel to additional European destinations, by cooperating with the ATTICA GROUP, and specifically – the SuperFast Ferries & the Blue Star Ferries.
