    VOLKSWAGEN  PASSAT  IN  MOSTY  U  JABLUNKOVA

    Excuse me, it's more Czech than Mosty u Jablunkova transportation tip - I will transfer it to my new Czech page, soon!

    The changes which take place in Czech after communism collapse in 1990 are the best seen on highways, I think. I remember Czechoslovakia as country of mainly Czech Skoda and additionaly Soviet Ziguli/Lada, East German Trabant and Polish Fiat 125/126 cars.
    Nowadays I noticed more and more new, modern Skoda cars and "western" cars mainly German Volksvagen as Skoda company belongs to Volksvagen. Add some South Korean (Daewoo), Japanese (Honda) and others.

    But I didn't see as many "western" cars on highways in Czech as in Poland. In contrast to Poland, Czech seems to develop in more natural way: first new highways/motorways then new cars, or maybe they drive by car less.
    It's strange at first sight: Czech Republic has larger total national income per person than Poland but... salaries are lower there which may mean that Czechs have less money to buy new cars. But they have lower budget deficit (= more money for highways/freeways, I suppose).

    Between... North Cape and Athens :-)

    URSZULA  AND  KATHY  BY  MAIN  EUROPEAN  HIGHWAY ?

    Village of Mosty u Jablonkova was located along Highway 11 (E-75) in northeastern corner of Czech Republic (click here) almost at the border to Slovakia and close to Poland as well. This region of Czech is called Morava which is historical name of that area with its main cities of Olomouc and Brno.

    Highway 75 or E-75 (E means European) is one of the main European north-south highways although it didn't look like it there :-).
    It goes from northern Norway (almost North Cape - the northernmost point of Europe) to Athens, Greece. It crosses... one sea (Baltic Sea - car ferry Helsinki - Gdansk), 9 countries (Norway, Finland, Poland, Czech, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia and Montenegro, FYR of Macedonia, Greece) and... my hometown Tychy, Poland :-))).

    I drove this highway many times but exclusively in and south of Poland. And I stopped a few times by Hotel Beskyd restaurant in Mosty u Jablunkova to eat there. There was small parking lot across the highway.
    The newly constructed part of highway E-75 goes a little west of the village since 2001 or so which makes the place less visited by transit travellers and more quiet :-). You must follow direction signs to Mosty u Jablonkova to get there from E-75.

    SKODA  FELICIA  IN  MOSTY  U  JABLUNKOVA

    Excuse me, it's more Czech than Mosty u Jablunkova transportation tip - I will transfer it to my new Czech page, soon!

    Driving around Czech and Czechoslovakia before I easily noticed that the most popular car was and still is Czech SKODA produced since 1905. More and more Czechs change their old Skoda models (Felicia on my picture) to new ones Skoda Fabia, Octavia or rarely (most expensive!) Superb. But you can still find old (from 80' and 90') Czechoslovak Skoda models which look like cars... 30-40 years ago or so.

    Skoda belongs to German Volkswagen group now. The large Skoda factory is located in city of Mlada Boleslav in western Czech. This region of Czech has one of the lowest unemployment rate in the Czech Republic and the highest average salary in the Central Bohemian County.

    TRAIN  IN... PARNICA,  SLOVAKIA

    I travelled from Tychy, Poland to Zilina, Slovakia through Czech by train once so I had to pass through Mosty u Jablunkova that time. It was quite cheap (I got 50% discount for weekend ticket) but rather slow trip (slower than by car).

    But anyway, train is a good choice in Czech for those who doesn't want to drive a car there. Add travelling by scheduled buses to destinations unreachable by train esp. in southern and southwestern Czech.
    There were quite many railway tracks around northern and northeastern Czech. I wanted to take local train somewhere close to Olomouc once but I took... a taxi (for 4 persons it was very good option!). I noticed that local trains were always more expensive, often slower (bad surprice!) but more comfortable than buses.

    Mosty u Jablunkova were located by railway track: Ostrava (airport there - daily flights to/from Prague) - Ceski Tesin (border city with Cieszyn on Polish side of the border) - Zilina, Slovakia. There is the last train stop on Czech side before entering Slovakia just in Mosty u Jablunkova. Don't miss the station unless you wish to visit Slovakia.

    For both international and domestic trains check your timetable: European train timetable

    BUS  STOP  IN  MOSTY  U  JABLUNKOVA  (CENTRE)

    Excuse me, I travelled around Czech by scheduled bus only once in early 90'. But I noticed numerous bus stops in almost every, even the smallest village in Czech including of course not so small (pop. almost 4,000) Mosty u Jablunkova. The village was looong, so there were a few bus stops, each with detailed bus schedule, along its main highway E-75 and - in contrast to nearby Poland and Slovakia - they looked nice and clean. Local buses by CSAD (main Czech bus company) looked a little bit old.

    As usual in Czech, people used to go by cheap local buses to work/school (don't they like driving, or what?). More: the timetables were set up for locals, not for visitors which meant many crowded buses in the morning (even early morning, some of them start work at... 6.00, most at 7.00 am) and early afternoon (say, 2 - 4pm) and... often almost none in the midday and in the evening as well as in weekends. Tickets are bought at driver (enter always by front door and have change ready!) except in large cities with bus terminals and cashiers.

    Bus timetables were exclusively in Czech language and contained a lot of difficult to understand abbrevations and secret signs put by hour of departure of each bus. They were explained surely in Czech and were key to understand the timetable as they meant for example: only on business days, except on Monday etc. No way, ask local for help, if you manage to find someone speaking, say English.
