International trains

The main north – south line from Niš in Serbia to the port of Thessaloniki in Greece on the Aegean Sea (Corridor X), passes through Kumanovo, Skopje, Veles and Gevgelija.


Currently, construction works are ongoing on this part of the network, which is why there is no international train traffic possible to both Belgrade (Serbia) and Thessaloniki (Greece).
