|The aim of this article is to assess whether České dráhy enjoyed a dominant position between the years 2011 and 2019. The European Commission is currently investigating České dráhy for an alleged abuse of dominant position in the form of predatory prices between the year 2011 and 2019. In order to actually fine České dráhy for this conduct, the European Commission will have conclude that České dráhy actually enjoyed a dominant position. This article suggests that although the market shares of České dráhy indicate an existence of dominance, examination of further factors suggests that České dráhy were in fact not in a dominant position.
