How our sleepers differ from the competitions

What makes couchettes and beds on rails different? The main difference is in the number of beds in a compartment, and in the quality of linen. The bed construction is the same. To make for greater privacy, we turned these couchette cars into bed cars so that three couchettes could be permanently unfolded to make a bed. Beds on one side are prepared for sleeping, couchettes on the other side are in a sitting position.

This solution bears a clear advantage over bed cars that you know from our competitors. The passenger is not dependent on his/her fellow passengers, and he/she can freely decide if he/she wants to sit or lie down - he/she can use two independent places. Therefore such a compartment for 3 people is bigger than a standard compartment for 3 people in usual sleeping cars used by the other carriers. However, it is necessary to point out the fact that our compartments are without a basin or shower - there are toilets and washrooms with washbasins at each end of the car.

Important note:

  • Passengers are not allowed to harass fellow passengers in the compartment and in the whole car.
  • Animals/pet cannot be transported in sleeping car even if they are in secluded baskets.
  • The forms or harassment include (according to the law): noise, heavy drinking (of alcohol), odour...
  • It is strictly forbidden to consume your own alcoholic beverages during the night regime. After the first warning, police will be contacted and the passenger will be made to get off the train with no remuneration for the train ticket.

New level of safety in trains

Do you also know all those fearful stories from trains?

"The conductor appears once in 3 hours!" ... "What if somebody robs you in the compartment?" ... "Nobody will stand up for you!" ... "Sleeping in a compartment with five foreigners - are you crazy?"

We guarantee you privacy and a safe journey.

There is a security service on board all the time, and a member of the crew in each car looking after your comfort and safety (during the night). The crew cannot sleep during the night - its members are present in corridors so you can address them with any request.

Do you prefer privacy, or low cost when travellings?

I want my privacy in a bed compartment!

A bed compartment represents luxury travel. You can find prepared space for sleeping there - just lie down, and cover yourself with a blanket! And there is also enough space for sitting in the compartment. The compartments are for max. 3 people, and you can purchase the whole compartment for 1-3 people to be sure that no stranger will travel with you. Alternatively, just buy 1 of these places and travel with some fellow passengers.


There are more of us and we like meeting new people!

A couchette compartment is the right choice in this case - there are prepared packages with the linen and you make your own couchette. There are seats for sitting in the compartment, and the crew will help you with adjustng them into the sleeping position before sleeping. The compartment is for 6 people so the price is much lower than for bed compartments. 


So what are you waiting for?

There is about 1/4 of sleeping cars on night trains so do not miss out on your place for a good rest.
