Tourists are very interested in railway and shipping lines in the Ústí Region. Regional spokeswoman Magdalena Fraňková told ČTK this today.
The T92 shipping line sails on the route Ústí nad Labem – Děčín – Bad Schandau. Děčín attracts tourists to a via ferrata on the Shepherd’s Wall, a castle or a zoo. The Elbe Canyon offers unique natural scenery. In Hřensk, you can take a walking or cycling trip to the Czech Switzerland National Park. You can also take a bicycle with you on the ship.
According to the plan, the line was supposed to run on weekends from April to June and then again from September. “The ship to Děčín sails for 41 days during the season, so far it sailed for 26 days, seven days were missed due to low water levels. The region decided to include one more sailing day at the end of the season. In total, we still have nine sailing days ahead of us,” said Fraňková.
Throughout the summer season, the T91 boat line plies the Elbe on the route Ústí nad Labem – Litoměřice – Nučnice – Roudnice nad Labem – Mělník. In the Ústí Region, both lines are fully included in the Ústí Region’s Transport tariff. Only in the Hřensko – Bad Schandau section on the T92 line is it necessary to use the cross-border tariff, an adult pays 40 kroner and a child half for a one-way fare.
On the railway, there are tourist lines operated mainly along historical lines, and carriers use both historical and modern cars on them. This year, the tourist season started on April 1 and will end on October 29. “The season is successful and, according to assumptions, the tourist lines show a high level of occupancy in tourist-attractive localities, as every year, which is contributed by, for example, extraordinary rides on the T11 line (Goat Railway) or the return of tourists to Czechoslovakia,” said the spokeswoman. Line load depends on the weather and is also affected by closures.
