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

"we enjoyed or trip from Salzburg to Zurich - we had a first class pass and would thoroughly recommend the extra money - ! But please note the seats we paid to be reserved were not reserved for us on any of our trips ! "
"The trip was fine although the train was very full at the beginning. Later it became more comfortable. Booking the tickets on the net was a little difficult and the English of the site was rather poor. It would help people to find what they need if you asked a native speaker to correct it. Also, it'd be easier and cheaper if the tickets were sent electronically instead of having to pay for the expensive postage. But the service was very good and I appreciated that someone came up to chat on the net when I was having difficulties in booking. Thank you, Csilla Bertha "

"After leaving Prague, we were told that we had to board buses due to construction for part of the track. Train staff did not speak English and we were explained this by another passenger. We boarded buses from 1970, had to get off and reboard another train, then switch cars based on our final destination. Extremely uncomfortable, confusing, and we probably should've been told this before we even left. Lugging a 50lb suitcase on 3 different trains and a bus was not in my travel plans. I would've rented a car if I knew this would happen. "
"very good experience.No issues "
