Overview

To most airplane travelers, it’s easy to get the capital cities of Bucharest and Budapest confused. That’s the beauty of the Eurail Select Pass including Hungary and Romania. It lets you see things at see level, giving you extensive travel in first class for adults and offering second class for youth only, along with saver pass discounts for two or more traveling together on the national rail networks of Hungary and Romania, with your choice of 5, 6, 8 or 10 days of rail travel within a two-month period. You can also decide whether you’d prefer those travel days to be consecutive or non-consecutive.

In Hungary, why not go to the largest synagogue in Europe, or the second largest Baroque castle in the world (Godollo) ? Or relax at Hévíz, the largest biologically active, natural thermal lake ? While Romania offers its share of awe-inspiring attractions, it’s more often recognized for its haunting architecture. Perhaps you’ll consider a (daytime ?) trip to Dracula’s castle ?

And a Eurail Select Pass not only gets you closer to the action, but allows you to be free of airport stress, gas prices, local ticket counter lines, and fumbling your way through an unknown currency. Plus, whether your travel plans are from Hungary to Romania or Romania to Hungary, there’s something else you should know : you can even use your rail pass for railway lines from Sopron, Hungary to Ebenfurt, Austria. In fact, you’ll find your rail pass opens doors to other travel discounts you weren’t expecting at select hotels and attractions. The Eurail Select Pass from Rail Europe. You’ll see everything, from sites to savings
