Czech Republic to Spend €100 Million to Modernize Trains


Czech State Railways is investing €100 million into updating trains on national and international lines.

The plan is to buy seven trains and have them ready for delivery in 2014.

The new trains will be Siemens Rail Systems Intercity trains. These iron horses can reach a top speed of 230 km/h; have 446 seats in three classes; and measure 185 meters per seven-car train.

A cool feature of these trains is a small movie theater for the kiddos. That settles it — I’m ready for my very own cross-Czech journey.
