IconOld train model
The international train journey from Dresden to Prague on the EC was a really good experience. For an extremely good price, you can buy this ticket and look forward to a comfortable journey on the IC, with friendly Czech staff who speak good English. The experience was very different to travelling on the Deutsche Bahn network, especially. The different train model was a change, but I was really pleasantly surprised.

IconAge of the train
The train journey on the EC from Dresden to Prague was an extremely positive experience. Even though the train was run by Czech staff, which was quite old, the journey was extremely pleasant in a cabin with just my five fellow travellers. The train line between Dresden and Prague runs right through the middle of Saxon Switzerland, which made for a beautiful backdrop during the journey, with the incredible mountain slopes and ancient looking ruins that could be seen time and time again. Even though the train was extremely old, as mentioned above, it was still very comfortable. The cabins you sat in could be locked so you had no contact with other passengers and the Czech conductors, who spoke solid English, were also extremely friendly and helpful. The value for money was also great, and a very reasonable price was charged for this long journey to another European country.
Pros
IconHigh travelling comfort
IconArrival/departure in the city centre
Cons
IconWifi not working
I travelled from Dresden to Prague on the EC177. I booked the ticket at quite short notice and still managed to get a super saver Europe fare via Deutsche Bahn. Otherwise it is often cheaper to book through the Czech railway. Even without a seat reservation, I easily found a free seat on board. The cleanliness of the toilet was fine and the dining car looked smart, even if I have heard that the quality of the food falls well short of its fine appearance. The seats are sufficiently comfortable. Unfortunately, the wifi didn't work for me, which may be due to the poor network coverage in the border area. A power socket was available. Unfortunately, the train journey ended with a slight delay in Prague. My patience was put to the test a little until I arrived, as the train travelled to many small stations in the Czech Republic before arriving in Prague and the train crawled through the countryside quite slowly. All in all, however, a great service for the price!
