TIN-EXPRESS, Christmas Train For Kids

Each year in December, HŽ Putnički prijevoz organizes Tin-express Christmas Train rides for kids. Beautifully decorated Tin-express runs in major cities. St Nicholas and Santa Claus, the most popular Christmas characters, come with bags full of gifts, providing for the Christmas spirit. The journey takes about an hour so that kids have plenty of time to party together, sing along to Christmas carols and have their pictures taken with St Nicholas and Santa Clause.

On the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we offer a charity ride on Tin-express for children from children ́s homes and different associations for persons with disabilities each year on 3 December.


ZEKO-EXPRESS, Easter Train for Kids

Get into the Easter spirit aboard the Zeko-express! There ́s all sorts of fun aboard the Easter train: party, songs, gifts and surprises. During the week, organized groups of children can take a ride aboard the Zeko-express. All those, who wish to get into the Easter spirit aboard the train during the weekend, can buy tickets at the ticket office.



We offer different travelling opportunities for the purpose of education, training, travelling and entertainment for children, young people and educational institutions. We approach journeys of organized groups of children individually, which means that we design a special train schedule for each journey separately, which best matches passengers ́ needs. It is also possible to organize an event for a specific occasion aboard. Children and persons who will be accompanying children during their journey as their guides can keep each other company during the journey.



We organize shorter journeys for the little ones including a tour of the railway station. Children can learn about the advantages of rail transport (an eco-friendly and energy efficient means of transport, which reduces road congestion) and rules of conduct in railway traffic.



HŽ Putnički prijevoz organizes special trains for a wide range of business events – conferences, seminars and presentations on a train. Organize a team-building trip for your employees and a trip to visit other events.

We provide state-of-the-art coaches and trains that match your business needs. Train schedule and stops during the journey are determined according to your needs.

Our offer includes conventional coaches with a dining car, providing a large area where people can mingle and dance.

Up to now, we have had a great success at providing transportation by rail for sports fans and at organizing New Year´s Eve parties, wedding parties, arranging party trains, business trips as well as a charity fashion show.
