Belgrade to Thessaloniki

MarillePupille @ 18-06-2019 12:17

Hello, I would like to travel this summer with the balkan flexi pass from Belgrade to Athens and I am wondering about the train route from Belgrade to Thessaloniki. Is it better to go through Skopje or Sofia and is there just a night train existing or can I also take the train during the day to Thessaloniki?
Thank you in advance🙂

Hi Marille.
The night train Belgrade-Thessaloniki is back fro this summer from 14 June to 16 September 2019.
Here some additional information in our blog:
And a video of this train - don't expect luxury, but it is a nice adventure:
Information on the website of Greek railways OSE:
Reservations are available at a ticket window at the station - not online.
Enjoy your trip, Pete 🙂

we'd like to go from Belgrade to Thessaloniki in summer 2020. Do you know if Hellas Express will be running (at least to Gevgelija)? I couldn't find any information yet...
Thanks a lot,
