From time to time they can hear informations about altitute, speed and approximate location of the plane. Before landing there are again „No smoking“ and „Fasten Your Safety Belts“ notices flashed on. Soon the airport lights can be seen as the plane descends and finally lands on the ground.

Travelling by train is the most common from of travelling. In our country train are used by many people to and from work or school. They are cheap, less polutting, safe but not very clean and comfortable. This refers especially to slow trains which stop at every station. It can also be an advantage as the people have enough time to enjoy countryside. Fast trains and trough trains are more comfortable for longer distances. They do not stop at every station. There are also a sleeping car and the dining car in fast trains which make the travelling more pleasant. Our railway system urgently needs reorganizing and modernizing as it is one of the most neglected and old-fashioned ones in all europe. Speaking about train travel in europe we should not forget to mention the bulding of the Channel Tunnel. It extended the British railway system to the continental one. Direct trains links England with other European cities within 8 to 15 hours. In the past the train travel was very popular way of travelling all over the world but in the last decades it has been replaced by other forms such as travelling by planes, coaches and cars.
Coaches are buses for long distance travelling. They are fast, comfortable and the prices of tickets are quite resonable. In our country many people prefer coaches to trains. During holidays the travel agencies offer many coach trips to the mountains or seaside resorts. There are regular coach lines connecting the capital of our country with most of European cities including Paris and London. Travelling by coach to London, the passengers have an interesting experience of Channel crossing by a big ferry. Coach and cars drivers drive their vehicles aboard the ferry and after landing they continue their journey to London. The shortest sea crossing by ferry from Calais to Dover takes one hour and a half.
Many people consider car the most comfortable means of travelling and seein places. Other think it is just a necessity because it is quicker than public transport. But for many people motoring is a pleasure.
