RegioJet launches train to Croatia
"Was clear early on the covid nineteen pandemic was going to be a disaster for the aviation business, and so it has proved him. It was clear almost as instantly that might be an opportunity for rail travel, and there is at least one indication. This suction has also been proved correct this summer check operator regional jet launched an overnight service from the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the Adriatic coast of Croatia and sold sixty thousand tickets on a hundred and twenty trains join from. Liana with more on this by Molecules Boca's correspondent Guide Alani. Going Festival it struck me anyway at least as an enthusiast. Rail travel and overnight rail traveled. There wasn't an overnight service from Prague Bratislav it to the Croatian coast seemed we'd so is anybody surprised by how successful this has been? I don't know if you look at it in terms of numbers sixty thousand passengers that's getting on for a tenth of all the check tourists who visited. Croatia this summer I mean in a normal season, the be eight, hundred, thousand checks going to the Croatian coast to call it all coast apparently when they're advertising it in the Czech. Republic. So, you're right. It was almost a market waiting to be created a to take that proportion of the passengers going from the Czech, republic, to Croatia, and that's a really stunning success. Because as you say, it wasn't even before and you couldn't actually got a direct line or we was a bit of a struggle as I recall to get a direct line from Lugano to react up, which is where the train was ending up and the train from the Czech Republic on radio jet jet whatever you WANNA call them. That was going through Lubiana so it could potentially be quite handy for me in the future. Is there a perception do you think that people feel like whether it's scientifically the case or not but feel like trains are currently a safe away to travel I guess there's a a feeling that you can open a window that you're not cooped up and breathing recycled air and having to be strapped in neck in close proximity to other passengers. The. Mind be that and it would depend on the train. Wouldn't it? I, mean th that's west. Serbia's trains would be a big advantage which I know you've traveled. that. The clapped-out old rolling stock with opening windows. So mean if I were working for the Serbian railways right now be saying, Hey, our windows open and. Off You go guys as much ventilation as you want I, think regional jets have been trying to. have themselves be marketed as a little bit more upscale even though that ticket prices are very cheap. They've been buying rolling stock from Australian railways and doing atop and You know the the coaches which were second at first class on Austrian railways running as second-class on radio jet trained. So that actually trump be comfortable, not just cheap cheerful and well ventilated and think at the time as well. The the very low numbers of coronavirus infections. In both the Czech Republic and Croatia, seven people talked about travel corridors will what's more Colorado like the train it literally has a corridor on a very often how important will this have been to Croatia this summer pasta because obviously like everywhere in the world reliant on tourism and the Adriatic coast of course, you're certainly reliant on tourism it will have been devastating is this been at least a little bit of a cap on the losses? Absolutely it's helped enormously and the architects were very good as well. If you can imagine these trains arriving Rica and disgorging at every turn hundreds of check tourists getting onto coaches to take them to other places on the Croatian coast. This was the way of saying we're safe and those pictures made it into the international media and as a result Kara's tourism season was down but it wasn't a disaster. God. bacchus correspondent.

Top Stories From The Balkans
"We're going to get around above stories making news in the Balkans now I'm joined to buy our correspondence in the region at guide to Lauraingraham. Good afternoon to you. You are in the Slovenian capital. What is happening there? While we're opening up a bet here, marcus in fact, as Britain is going in the direction of putting arrivals and quarantine fourteen days, which is caused a great deal of Cathal over there. I'm here in Slovenia it's exactly the opposite. The country's just opened up. To arrivals from fourteen other European countries, and that's ranging from Switzerland to Iceland and Germany the Baltics, and that's in addition to its neighbours, Croatia Hungary and Austria. Restrictions on rivals from those places had already been lifted Italy those going to have to wait for a little while, but probably for about a week longer, and it's very bad news coming from north Macedonia Marcus, it's a compulsory fourteen day quarantine arriving from that, and that's because of a recent increase in a number of covid nineteen cases. Luckily I'm not coming from us. Part of the world's continuing to the neighboring country Croatia. What's making headlines over there now? We'd like railway journey Sony Marcus on Monocle, twenty, four and I. This is warm, which sounds to me? Like a railway journey that that I'd like to make, and it's one from the Czech Republic through to the Croatian coast, and this is being run by the Czech railway operator regular I think you pronounce it regular jet. Should we go with that? And they are running trains that I think we'll go with that the plan anyway as whatever they could they. However you pronounce that they're going to be running night. Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia. Because twenty percent of their GDP is generated by tourism I'm said they're going to have to. Find ways of getting people from places like the Czech Republic that key tourism markets. If that is salvage any kind of a summer season at all, and this is exactly the when people are talking about corona corridors between countries which have low infection rates of which. Croatia and the Czech Republic A to well I think that A. Colorado, because let's face it this. This trains conjugate three tunnels Marcus that raw appeals to me I in terms of both an elegant solution and the word play, and the fact that it'll. Be a very beautiful train journey.

And then I look at the sheet of Mike. How am I losing? Heather's killing me so hopefully get some revenge in today's show because we're doing it throwdown showdown our third party she? She don't think you're going to be vindicated here because this is my country others already said she's going to. She's said to me multiple times in the last couple of days as we been getting ready record this I'm going to crush. You is what she said. I feel very confident. I baby on the underdog guys. Maybe you're rooting for the underdog. Here today I would say my country is definitely an underdog because today during our throwdown showdown we are doing Croatia vs Slovenia. So obviously. If you've listened to the podcast you know which one I'm choosing heavens Croatia.

Today we save this to last of the part series because this like this is the day new mall the Climax Actually Dana Ma I think goes up to the climbers either way. This is the climax of it we are. We both love these countries but you know Croatia has a very special place in your heart so he has a very special place in my art. So I'm ready to go to war. I'm ready I'm ready for you. I mean when people ask me what my favourite countries I stay Croatia and it hasn't changed in years. We've been there three times. I love it so much. Sure tell us why started off you again? I'm not holding back here at all. I have is actually legitimately stretching out right now as she. I'm radio I'm not holding back here not hold back. I know you all because you say you want to crush Croatia. Well I don't even know where to begin because there's nothing really bad to say about Croatia. It's a gorgeous country. It has so much coastline. I mean it's okay so geographically. It's across the Adriatic Sea from Italy. Italy gets a lot of love for its coast cities all of that. It also is heavily touristed so Croatia. We'll becoming very popular and mortar should still has less tourists. I think than some of the bigger countries bigger most populated or not most populated most touristic countries in Europe. But it just has this vibe where people are friendly. It's just as beautiful if not more beautiful in some of these other countries. I mean we're talking a thousand miles of coastline if you like if you like the beat if you like being near the water this is the country for you. So it is beautiful. Of course I love creches. Well I think Slovene is even more beautiful. Why because it has more going for it as at least as far as for its size so this country punches above its weight more than any country I've ever been to. It is the size of New Jersey New Jersey so means this is New Jersey and yet it has a little bit of coastline very minimal. One town one mile coastline. And it's gorgeous so you can. You can get it you can go to the town of Piron. Cute Little Town Great Food. So you've got coastline there but what makes Lavinia so gorgeous to me is the fact that it's got everything else as well. It doesn't just have the coast. It has lake bled to this day. One of the most beautiful place. If you've ever been in the world and when I saw the picture of lake bled when I was like fourteen or fifteen years old I remember seeing it having no idea how to pronounce Lubiana. No idea where Slovenia was but saying I will go there one day. There is a lake with a church on an island in the middle of it. I will go there. We went their lives up to the hype in person cool so people know about that lake bled. They might have heard about you. Know they might not have known so. Many had a little bit of coastline. Same coast basically as Croatia. Just a lot less of it but what a lot of people don't realize is has the Alps in it as well so you go up to cranks Gorga. You got to some of these errors. You're in the Alps. We stayed at a hotel or this little awesome guest at the foot of the Alps. So you can say in a country. This is New Jersey. You have the Alps. You have stunningly gorgeous on you have one of the best lakes in the world and we haven't even gotten to the picture perfect little posted stand capital of Lube Lithuania. So to me. That feels like a rehearsed arguing. Were you practicing map before we did this? Podcast I thought this was be no preparation. No rehearsal it's been in my head for a long time. I told you on common with the big guns. Come with the beginning. Well for your lake bled. We have in Croatia about you know. I don't know a thousand islands. Yes that's right. Well over one thousand islands one of which has its very own little monastery on an island in the middle of the sea kirk monastery. We didn't actually go there. But I knew you were going to bring up like blood and when we were in Croatia this time we tried to go to put. Bj LAKES SO Croatia while it may not have the elps has so much natural beauty and it does have mountains are much smaller and if you drive quite a ways off the coast you can get to put bj leaks. We went however because it's so popular now we weren't able to get in because it's better to get a reservation. The next time we were able to go in the park was going to be like five hours from when we were there so we just decided to skip it however when we left there somebody said well. You should go to kirk waterfalls because there are actually bigger than put. Vj they're just not as touristed so you can see some of the most dramatic national parks in Croatia with these waterfalls in these pools of just like beautiful greenish blue water. I mean it's just stunning stuff. Just Google at people. I mean Lake Bled. D You have waterfalls.

You know how Bosnia used to be part of the austro-hungarian Aryan Empire and the did indeed and the Hens transferred and I'm being shot on the bridge in Sarajevo Dobbs all because the Australian guaranteed an empire and thus we had the the first this war now part of having a wide ranging empire as you need to be able to communicate and back in the nineteenth century the Austria Hungarian saw the best best way to do that in many respects was pigeon post and they opened up a pigeon post office in a town in southeast Bosnia called Trebinje and this has been lovingly restored stored and it's everything's there and you can go to this town today and see the pigeon post office the one thing you cannot see as guess what it's exactly exactly that and now the locals campaigning.

"Service announcement though, make our misfortune your opportunity, and that is to buy your tickets ahead of time online. You know, just do it. I don't know how far in advance, you, you have to buy them. I thought two days in advance at least, but I'm not one hundred percent. Sure on that. So just to be safe book, if you're planning to go just book, it right ahead, which we could have easily done. I was like kicking myself, but whatever we all make mistakes and. I just wanted to note that if you don't have time to go to visa, or if something like this happens to you, and you can't enter there is another national park that we found out about later, and we didn't know because we kind of pass right by it on the way to split and it has waterfalls, and it's almost as beautiful or just as beautiful, maybe more beautiful, depending on your. It was called Kirk national park. K R, K A. And from the pictures it just looks stunning. And I don't think it's as popular so less, I think they take a lot of groups on day trips and stuff. But it's way less popular with, with travelers coming coming through, I guess I should say, so, and if we had known about this, maybe we would have tried to stop on the way down to split. I mean, it would have been a little out of the way. But at least we could have got our fill of a national park. So either one. I think we're both or both. I mean, how would you be really amazing? And I'm just looking at a picture online, and there is like this beautiful little island in the middle of a lake there that has like this beautiful monastery kinda reminds me of lake bled in Slovenia. So I think that the Kirk national park would be pretty sweet as well, you bring up lake, but let me just mention if you find Zog. Grab if you're ins Dogar, a lot of people take day trips to lake bled, and Lubiana, which we've done a Selena destination diary, we love Sylvania. I didn't realize how close they were to each other. So from Zagreb, you can get to, like blood to two and a half hours. You can get to Lubiana in about an hour and a half. So if you're in Zog grab instead of going south, or if you have some time saga, we didn't that's another thing you could do and go up to Slovenia,.
Plastic pollution peril, symptom of worlds out-of-control chemistry experiment: top explorer
"Explorer poll rose is usually found in the world's wildest places where he works with scientists to find solutions to climate change. But for the last two weeks, though, he's been in downtown Geneva in Switzerland at a major u n conference to encourage countries to ban widely used toxic substances and plastic pollutants. He's been talking to Daniel Johnson from you and news about what the average person can do to make a difference. So I'm here at the conference apart is here in Geneva for basil Rotterdam, Stockholm Convention because of my interest in discovering pollutants in the wall places. There's something about it. You're in these places. Imagine the beautiful monochrome polar life is not many colors. It's restful, and peaceful and exciting at the same time or being at CEO being on beaches wherever we are in. We're in the world's most pristine places, and yet you turned the corner. And we discover pollution either. What is invisible such? As all of our water samples, we take on all of our experts all over the world contain nanoparticles plastic. We can't see it. But we know it's in that water sample or just a few weeks ago. I came out from the jungle in Costa Rica, the Corcovado why it's an amazing place four different kinds of monkeys and sloths and birds of all kinds come out from that were everything was pristine, and as soon as we hit the beach. What did we see plastic is a disaster? So I'm here to help understand and communicate what is going on with persistent organic pollutant. You've talked about persistent organic pollutants or pops. There are a few of them that are going to be or hopefully going to be listed as a banned substances. Let's talk about if you them one of them is he f- a do you notice as well as penta deca fluoro-organic acid apparently easy for you and dictaphone which is an easy one. That's a pesticide. That's used in farming fatigue, vegetables and cotton, so widely used highly toxic. What are you hoping to get from this conference of? Parties meeting here in Geneva meets every two years while I'm really hoping that we get these chemicals listed and indeed band. I mean who would wanna live in a sort of giant global out of control chemistry experiment, and but for the good work being done here the counselor parties, that's exactly how we would be living. So I'm hoping that they get listed properly and then managed properly in the thing with the thing with the conventions is they provide a sort of comedy nominators shared platform for leaders and decision makers and industry to make smart informed decisions. Right. So how many leaders are we talking about? I mean, how many people have signed up to the Basel Rotterdam stock bottles lives. One hundred ninety six Rotterdam is one hundred and fifty nine and Stockholm is one hundred eighty one. So it's a force to be reckoned with. It's a global network of smart people really making a difference keeping us safe that brings me to another thing that I remember you saying while ago, how are there parallels with aspects doses? And today's unseen threats with this part of the. We do here is to make the invisible visible. You see something like PF away. And this unfortunately falls into this soup of acronyms one. Immediately turns off one of the good bits of work. They do here the council. Parties is trying to decode all that. So that we can understand it properly as everywhere it's in cookware. It's in sofas. It's in foam for firefighting and all the rest of it. And this kind of thing is out there. But we don't know it. But for the work of the firefighters, it was the firefighters let the PF L LA campaign because they were using it regularly. Of course in their firefighting foam, it's usually -ffective and their colleagues. We're getting sick too, many of them getting sick, and it became blindingly obvious. There was something wrong with this. So that's what's driven the point to come on. Let's get this stuff listed, and then banned simply with a specialist. It's in buildings. It's in our brake drums on cars. It said some of our pot work and all the rest of it. And I have a little bit of a history with a specialist because I was an apprentice for Motor Company in nineteen sixty. As in England. And we used a specis to insulate the tools from the big machines. And I remember then we would drilling machine and then we'll take an air hose and blow it I'm believable. Then a few years later still in apprenticeship it was replaced by something else. I forget the name of and we were still blowing around June that period. I suddenly learned that in the nineteen thirties as best as was a regulated substance because of the healthy facts were documented so as taken all of these years for people to say come on. We've got to do something about it. And I met some people outside who actually victims of aspects doses. And it was quite moving to meet them and realize they're here petitioning for smart decisions to be made in that illustrates one of the many challenges that counselor parties face one of the things that we've learned from this conference of parties is that plastics can absorb these persistent organic pollutants such as DD dog sins that frequently found in marine litter. So how is that initiative coming along here at the conference of parties to clean up marine? Plastics. It's interesting, isn't it that now the plastics awareness has reached such a high point? I've never seen anything like it with the global environmental issue. I mean, everybody go to any school in industry, anywhere. People are talking about plastic tickly, marine, plastics. And I'm delighted they're focused on the way that plastics can become sort of super polluters. You see the big things at know. I've been in remote places with the most perfect tuna blue water, we call it look at that. And the reefs of I live sharks everywhere, you know, top predators amazing life, and all of a sudden a whole bunch of plastic will come floating by raft of it. But we should know we must let people know is that as well as the big lumps plastic drifting by wants to have been seen long enough and begin to breakdown they become like, magnets and become pockets of super pollution. Some absolutely delighted that the council parties are focusing on marine, plastic and the first thing we can do is stop pudding as much plastic in the series. We do is no excuse for it. And I've seen that change in behavior. Now, we will. Wouldn't think of putting an empty water bottle on the beach and leaving? It would we we wouldn't think of putting a plastic box or food container somewhere in over full litter-bin and let it blow into the sea. There is a change in our human behavior, an industrial behaviors changing, we're looking all of the world's rivers and with the benefit of remote. Sensing we can now watch this material coming out of certain rivers. So that means we know where to go and stop it and start finding sensible alternatives law sensible alternative, I'm just back from Lubiana where I was in a plant where they take hundreds of thousands of abandoned fishing nets and turn them by great chemistry, turn them into nylon. Which is exactly the same as oil on. And I make luxury goods from it says leading through example and profit making people love it. I was going to ask you about what we could actually do normal people in the street people who haven't been taps inspired as you have by the natural wonders of the world, and maybe the solutions. You've seen here and there and the ones that you've just talked about what can people in the street do every day? Well, it is worth looking at the sustainable development goals. Look at target twelve point five which is all about substantially reducing the amount of waste, we produce and use more recycling and the way to do that. I mean, we all get frustrated don't me go out of your house. And you you go to put your plastic there, and you can there, and you you traveling on the or do these things and there's nowhere obvious to recycle them. Then we must realize every single action that we do works. Some neighbors of mine hate it. And they don't recycle anything. So I do it for them. You know, drives them crazy keeps me saying you gotta do something about this amount of white. What can we do? Learn about do local litter picks raise awareness with the counselors vote for the right people who have a mind by things that fit those goals. Similarly, you may work in industry and the decisions you make in the boardroom should be based on the sustainable development goals and say, well, look if we did this with make this much money, keep the. Shareholder? If we did that we'd make a good amount of money, and we would help answer some of these environmental. Why not changing our values a bit? You get the whole planet looking at something like that. We've got it on very optimistic about achieving the sustainable development goals all of them.
