About this journey

Whet your appetite for Hungary

Whet your appetite for Hungary Delicious goulash. Fragrant paprika. sweet vizsla dogs and kerchief-clad ladies relaxing beside the Danube, which splits Budapest, into two sections – Buda and Pest. One of the bigger train stations – the Keleti – is on the Pest side. You can arrive from major, central Europe capitals like Vienna in just 3 hours by train. Budapest is larger than you might expect. If you plan on staying on the Buda side, which is decidedly more suburban, you’ll require the use of a tram to get there from the Keleti station. Learn more about Budapest

A beautiful name for an unheralded city

A beautiful name for an unheralded city Visiting Sofia, Bulgaria takes a commitment if you're traveling from a "touristy" country. From Rome, you can take the train to Bari, a ferry to Patras, Greece, a transfer to Athens and then about 13-hours via trains up from Athens. Or how about a 22-hour overnight train from Vienna ? This isn't to put you off. In fact, traveling to this Balkan gem is the perfect opportunity to really get to know train travel in Europe. This is still a much less expensive region to travel through – cheaper than the rest of Western Europe. There is more than a currency difference here. Try and ask a Bulgarian conductor, "Is this the train to Sofia ?" and be answered with a shake of the head. "No" means "Yes." A nod means "no." Then there's the Cyrillic alphabet. Most signs still use it despite a thrust toward westernization. An Internet study-up beforehand couldn't hurt. Learn more about Sofia
