Line 250 Breclav - Havlickuv Brod

For many years this was the principal passenger and freight route from the Austrian and Slovak borders near Breclav to the Praha area and beyond into Germany. In 2000, when the Ceska Trebova line was electrified, the fastest passengers were diverted onto that route north of Brno but the bulk of freight traffic remained on the line via Zdar nad Sazavou. South of Brno the route is flat and uninspiring but the section to the north-west runs through superb hilly country and crosses several major viaducts.
