Prague to Krakow Destination Reviews

GS
Bus Express, Nikolo CZ, Oct 1, 2019
Driver was not driving well. The bus smelled very badly, due to there were some Ukrainian men that were smelling a lot. They should have not been accepted to enter the bus, or the tickets should have written to come to the bus in a decent condition. The assistants were nice, but speaking few english. Nice thing was that they distributed coffee and a shot of Ukrainian liquor. In the ticket, all stops should be written (not only your chosen departure and arrival).
