On what types of cars?

About cars in general

Most of these trains run with compartment cars with classic windows made in the 1980s-1990s that can be pulled down. This is why we are unable to offer air conditioning on SEA←YOU trains and there are only plugs that can be used to recharge phones in certain cars. The SEA←YOU train is a kind of retro train.

Experience the journey, open the window and let the fresh air of the Dinaric Alps in, take a photo and admire the mountains, the forest after you wake up before you reach the sea.

Ülőhelyes kocsiSitting car

Passengers travelling in a compartment car can get to the seaside by sitting in 6- or 8-seat compartments.

There is a toilet at both ends of the car.
The compartment car is the cheapest means of travel, since seat reservations only costs 3 €.
It is also possible to transport 3 bicycles in one of the compartment cars of the train to Split, Rijeka and Koper by purchasing a bicycle ticket in advance.
