This week, Saturday to Sunday, long-distance trains will run for an hour longer due to the transition to winter time.

The last weekend in October 2021, on the night of Saturday 30th to Sunday 31st October, the summertime ends, and that is why hour hands

will turn back one hour at 3:00. Long-distance trains that will be on the tracks at that time will have one hour gap at the nearest station.

If these connections won't run, they will run after a time change in the rest of the schedule an hour earlier and the suitable timetables would not be on schedule.

Many railway companies in Europe will follow a similar practice.

In the Czech Republic, the time change will affect a total of four night-long-distance trains, and in Slovakia - it will be two.

For example, Poland with its longest railway network will have to manage up to fifteen trains.

This solution allows passengers to reach the destination station according to the timetable and prevents the possibility of disorder on the tracks.

But due to the changes, passengers will be on the train for an hour longer, as will train drivers, which extends their working hours.
