A branch line at Janovice nad Úhlavou connects with trains to Domazlice & Furth in Wald, whilst the branch line at Klatovy has connections for Susice, and further east. The train ride from the village towards Klatovy is a local train, so it's a slow journey, but very scenic, winding through the Bohemian Forest.
