The national railway company of Hungary is known as the Hungarian State Railways. In Hungarian, it is spelled out as Magyar Államvasutak (MÁV). Hungary has over 7,000 km of railway tracks, one of the most important in central Europe. Main railway stations are found in cities like Budapest and Misklov. The main railway stations in Hungary include Déli Railway Station, Keleti Railway Station, Nyugati Railway Station, Kelenföld Railway Station, Tiszai Railway Station and Gömöri Railway Station.
The best way to visit Hungary would be by train, as the country benefits from a well developed network. You should start with Hungary’s capital, the beautiful Budapest. Here is everything that you want like museums, interesting buildings, witnesses of the eventful history of the city, and lively streets.
If you are fond of cycling, go on the flat lands around the Tisza River, where you can also enjoy a horse riding. If you go to Hungary as a couple, board on a boat trip along the majestic Danube river, a very romantic way to discover the activities provided by the river, such as fishing or bird watching.
Hop on a train to Miskolc, Pécs or Gyor, here you will find shopping malls. If you stay in Budapest, run to the MOM Park; you may need a full day to list all the shops. If you have a sweet tooth and like shopping, Hungary’s Nyugati train station provides all you need!
Eat & Drink
Paprika is the spice you will notice in Hungary’s peasant cuisine. Do not miss the well known Goulash soup (beef, onions, garlic), typical of the country, as the Balatoni fogas, but beware the imitation, Fogas is a fish only available in the Lake Balaton… Don’t forget to taste wines such as Riesling.
Board a train to North eastern Hungary, in Szilvásvárad, where the majestic snow-white Lipizzaner horses are waiting for you.

"SMOOTH RIDE"Neil m.
TGV IS THE WAY TO GO IN FRANCE. MINIMUM CHECK-IN TIME. COMFORTABLE SEATING. FANTASTIC VIEWS. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. BEATS A PLANE ANY DAY!
"Perfect"Peter m. 22/06/2015
Beautiful trip in a comfortable train
"Better than flying"Peter m. 22/06/2015
Train was good and fast but need a USB port or two! Too much foot traffic in our carriage as people went to the restaurant.
"Very comfortable trip"Anne c. 22/06/2015
We travelled on the fast train, the train trip was comfortable, we travelled first class, free papers and a drink.
"Great train trip"Stephen s. 22/06/2015
Using printouts of E tickets was a first for me, but there were no problems, the rail staff at Barcelona Sants station were extremely helpful. We were in the first class section, upstairs. The seating was comfortable and once again the on board staff were friendly and helpful. The train was very smooth, the only problem was waiting for oncoming trains on the single track sections which resulted in the train being 35 minutes late. A really enjoyable train journey, I would recommend.
"Paris-Caen"Chris m. 22/06/2015
Basic, open seating,but comfortable with electrical points and table.
"Best way to travel to Paris"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was a fabulous experience and a much better way to travel from London to Paris as against flying with all the check-in issues etc. City to city centre was perfect and border passport control and security baggage checking process at St. Pancras was a breeze. Why would anyone choose to fly when this service is superior?
"Excellent way to travel"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was an amazing and smooth journey. Travelling at speeds up to 300km per hr and was so smooth. Got to Florence in good time and without all the normal hassles you would otherwise experience with the flying options. This is just so much a better way to travel and all things considered - took less time than flying! Only problem was that the power points for plugging and charging laptops etc. was not working in the carriage - which was very poor for the 'Primo' class seats!
"Excellent way to travel"Brian p. 22/06/2015
Unfortunately, the power points for laptop connections were not working in the carriage but otherwise, another smooth journey. This is the best way to travel to Venice. You arrive in Venice right onto the main island and walk straight outside to where the water taxi's are. So convenient!
"Good travel experience"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was a very good experience - with no issues getting our reserved seats. A nice train
"Nice train experience"Brian p. 22/06/2015
This was a much better experience where we actually got our first class and reserved seats without any issues. Quick and smooth journey.
"Off to the Cinque Terre"Elizabeth h. 22/06/2015
Everything was great. Good idea booking the tickets from Australia - convenient and allowed good preparation on our part. Perhaps advice about the app you can load to check options if you need to change plans. Also tickets not easily changeable overseas - need to go back via Australia. Perhaps you should warn about sharks at station who offer to assist, carry bags, etc then want to charge an exorbitant fee. Regards
"Rome to Florence"Jo-anne g. 21/06/2015
The terminal was easy to negotiate, and found our platform, carriage and seats with ease. We found the luggage storage was not sufficient for the number of travellers with large cases. Train travel suited our needs for this trip.
"Excellent"Kaye o. 21/06/2015
A pleasure to travel on this train.
"Very Good"Kaye o. 21/06/2015
On time clean and comfortable, a little more space for luggage would be useful.
