Hi everybody, I'm currently interrailing through Europe and hope to go to Greece via the Hellas Express night train that supposedly leaves every day from Belgrade. However I can't seem to find any information that is even close to up to date (besides that you now have to take a bus from Gevgelija to Thessaloniki for the final part. Does anyone know if this train is still running every day in summer, and if so, where I can find more info? Thank you!

The short answer is NO. I'm guessing that your planning hasn't involved the official websites of the railwasy of each country.

The Greeks say the line is closed with a bus from Gevgelija to Thessaloniki.

The Bulgarians don't even admit to the existence of a railway south of Nis, not even for local traffic.

North Macedonian Railways have had their website suspended by the web host!

But would it then still be possible to your knowledge to get from Belgrade to Gevgelija by train and then a bus from Gevgelija to Thessaloniki? I keep seeing very conflicting information online.

Hi!

No international trains between Belgrade and Skopje and Skopje and Thessaloniki. Best way to travel by bus all the way.
