If Hungary is not on your “Liszt” you should add it right now, you will not have any regrets.

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

Hungary is a land with a distinctive language and an exceptional culture, where heritage meets trend! Be fascinated by the unique traditions of music, explore the Hungarian Art-Nouveau style, dip into the variety of culinary experiences and relax in one of the rejuvenating spas. In the countryside you will find majestic plains, resort-lined lakes and picturesque towns: be impressed by the baroque Royal Palace of Gödöllő, feel the Hungarian spirit at the Lázár Equestrian Park and dive into the cultural life of Pécs. Budapest, the capital city is less than 3h from Vienna and 2h40 from Bratislava.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.

Take Home

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.

New Perspective

Board a train to North eastern Hungary, in Szilvásvárad, where the majestic snow-white Lipizzaner horses are waiting for you.

  • Great Train Trip | . | 2017/01/19
    "The journey by train was fantastic very comfy and no hassles easy to see the country side and very convenient way to travel between cities. Would definitely travel by train again when in Europe. "

    Across the Alps | John s. | 2017/01/16
    "Our trip from Vienna to Innsbruck by rail was excellent. Very few passengers in our coach meant plenty of empty seats and windows to view out of. The countryside was beautiful. One minute you are looking at open farmland, the next mountain tops covered in snow. The four and half hours disappeared quickly, from boarding the train in Vienna and the next you are alighting in Innsbruck. I would recommend this train trip to any traveler fortunate enough to be holidaying in Austria. Both Vienna and Innsbruck are two cities you need to put in your must visit. "

    "A commuter train is just that. . .crammed into hard seats like sardines for the trip. Was not impressed with station staff in Salzberg when trying to get suitcases off before the commute continued on its journey. "

    Wonderful, easy travelling | Diane m. | 2016/10/21
    "How easy was this travelling by train - very easy. The train ran on time, it was clean, comfortable and loved every minute of my trip from Budapest to Prague. Serving of food and beverages was terrific and staff were very professional. The train change in Vienna was so easy and the information screens kept you informed at all times. Would highly recommend this style of travelling. Will certainly do it again. The glass waiting room on the platform was ideal and great protection from the elements and so easy to see your next train connection coming. Fabulous Rail Europe, we could learn a lot from you. "

    Good service to use | Kathryn b. | 2016/10/18
    "I was impressed with the ease of travel using the online service, especially when it also including organising my seat allocation when booking. The trains were heavily booked and without this service, I may have been standing for the entire journey! I gave the 4 stars for convenience purely because of the situation of the Kelenfoe Station at the end of the Green Line and not the more central railway station. My rail travels really were a stress free and enjoyable way to travel! "
