From the rolling hills of the Danube Valley to the shores of Lake Balaton, from the elegant beauty of Budapest to the culture hub of Pécs, Hungary is a picturesque and welcoming country which is a wonderful addition to a rail journey through Europe, or a fantastic destination in its own right. Hungary’s rail network is centred on the capital Budapest, with various lines spidering out to regional destinations such as Miskolc, Debrecen, Pecs and Sopron. The most modern trains run between Budapest and Vienna, calling at such cities as Tatabánya, Gyor and Hegyeshalom.
