My visit to Budapest was stop number three on my trip across Europe, and I stayed there for a few days – the city has plenty to see, and you won’t be able to visit all of the locations below in a single day.
Our rail journey from Budapest in Hungary to Bucharest in Romania was a long one, because we made a pit stop in Transylvania to see Dracula’s Castle. So what did we see along the way?
Tramway operators need a fleet of special vehicles to keep the tracks and overhead lines in good working order, and the city of Budapest is no different.
I spent a couple of days in Budapest on my trip across Europe, and on one of them I was lucky to stumble upon a heritage train parked at Budapest Keleti railway station.
Budapest’s Nyugati pályaudvar (western railway station) is one of three rail termini in the capital of Hungary, and to my eye the grandest. But something very inconvenient happens each time it rains.
For me the train journey from Vienna, Austria to Budapest, Hungary was the most boring one of our trip across Europe – the reason being the lack of daylight for spotting passing trains!
