EC (Poland - Austria/Hungary/Czech Republic)

The trains used vary on these EC (EuroCity) routes to/from Poland.

(i) Warszawa - Katowice - Ostrava - Pardubice - Praha/Prague

(ii) Gydnia - Gdasnk - Warszawa - Katowice - Ostrava - Breclav - Wien/Vienna

(iii) Warszawa - Katowice - Ostrava - Breclav - Bratislava - Vic - Budapest

(iv) Karkow - Katowice - Ostrava - Pardubice - Praha/Prague

We have been on a train formed of Hungarian coaches on Budapest to Warszawa journey.

We have seen Warszawa to Prague/Praha trains that comprise a mix of Polish and Czech coaches - and seen a Warszawa to Wien train composed solely of Polish (PKP) coaches.

These trains tend to have a slightly old fashioned sense of style and comfort, with seats that line up with the windows - but can lack modern amenities such as Wi-Fi and electronic info screens etc.

If you're travelling 1st class, then on the Polish part of the journey, you'll be offered complimentary hot/cold drinks and snacks at your seat.

The 'other' rail pass that's valid on many of these trains is the 'European East' pass.
