European East Pass

Folk music. Folk Art. And lets not forget the folks.

Eastern Europeans are known for many things. A love of music, folk art and skilled craftsmanship top the list. But what’s a trip without getting an authentic view of the locals?

You’ll not just see but experience life in these scenic and unique regions, never to confuse them again.

Travel with a European East Pass from Rail Europe. What better way to find yourself, well, fulfilled.
