The Czech national rail company, České dráhy (CD), is extensive and inexpensive, but often crowded. The fast trains stop at major cities; local trains stop everywhere; but usually provide only second-class service. All long-distance trains have two classes; some have dining carriages and overnight services. Reserve seats on express trains; don't rely on international trains having air conditioning: Phone:221 111 122. BUS (autobus)
