Hey everyone

I wanted to travel to Greece by train this summer and was wondering about the routes Skopje - Thessaloniki or Sofia - Thessaloniki. The greek trainwebsite says that Sofia - Thessaloniki is provided. But the ticket shop for example doesn't show any connections. Does anyone know if this routes are going to be provided this summer?

Thanks!

the official site says "All the international itineraries are supended until further notice" www.hellenictrain.gr/en/international-railway-services and it's been like that for quite a long time. If anything restarts it's most likely to be the Sofia line since thre is only the cross border section not in use, Skopje is a much bigger issue. Given the disaster last week I suspect that Hellenic Tain are more concerned about the state of internal services.
