Next September, we will be in Eastern Europe for 3 weeks. After staying in Prague for three days, we plan to head down to Cesky Krumlov. According to the train schedule, we will travel from Prague (16:14) to Ceské Budejovice (19:04) and then have only FIVE minutes until the train to Cesky Krumlov (19:09) arrives. Is this enough time? Is the train from Prague likely to be late like many of the Italian trains I've been on in the past? Or, are they usually on time? Trains generally leave from Ceské Budejovice to Cesky Krumlov approx. every 2 hours, so there is not a lot of room for error. Even if the train arrives on time, I don't know if 5 minutes would allow enough time to grab our stuff, get off the train, find the correct platform for the next train, etc. I want to take the 16:14 train specifically to maximize our time in Prague that day and arrive at a decent time in Cesky Krumlov (around 8 PM). Otherwise, our other option is to hire a private car through Mike's Chauffeur Service, which will be a much more expensive option, or, leave Prague on an earlier train, which I'm not thrilled about. Thoughts?
I would look into taking a bus instead, but my husband gets motion sickness very easily in buses, so this is not a good option.
