The aim of this article is to present the importance of railway transport as a determinant of improving the availability of tourism products (and attractions), mainly for citizens of selected seaside counties, namely Koszalin and Sławno, as well as tourists within the access to Koszalin and Sławno. Koszalin and Sławno counties, where holiday rail transport services to the Baltic Sea were opened, were chosen as a research area. In order to achieve the aim, a desk research method, including the available literature and the results of secondary research published by Urząd Transportu Kolejowego (the Office of Rail Transport), the Central Statistical Office (GUS), Przegląd Kolejowy (Railway Review) and Przewozy Regionalne (Regional Transport), which open new opportunities to access the seaside tourism product and shape the communication behaviours of its recipients, was adopted. The article is of overview-research nature.
