According to the Hungarian railway webiste the 0623 to Oradea leaves from Budapest Nyugati station:

http://elvira.mav-start.hu/elvira.dll/xslms/index?language=2

I can't find internatiopnal fares, I'm afraid. Under its FAQs

http://elvira.mav-start.hu/elvira.dll/xslms/xml?xml=faq&language=2&name=email#email

the site says:

'You can get information from the Passanger Information Centre of the Hungarian State Railways sending a mail to informacio@mav-start.hu or calling the phone number +36 (1) 371-94-49 +36 (1) 371-94-49 from abroad or 06 (40) 49-49-49 in Hungary.'

I am pretty sure any fare you pay will in Hungarian forints and not euro.

Re: Train from Budapest to Oradea

Hi,

The regular international fare outside of Hungary and Romania is 29.60 Euro. You pay in forint, the railway will use the 270 Forint = 1 Euro exchange rate.

Starting this year Romanian and Hungarian railway offers 35% discount on one-way tickets and the return tickets are again 50% off. This offer is only for purchases in said countries (i.e. buying in, say, Austria there is no discount!)

Thus, the answer:

- the regular Budapest-Oradea-Budapest round-trip is 29.60 Euro. This ticket is valid on any train, unlimited stopovers within a month validity.

- the regular Budapest-Oradea one way-trip is 19.24 Euro. This ticket is valid on any train, unlimited stopovers within a month validity.

- In the reality you can cut the one-way fare pretty easy by a little bit more: "round-trips" are not necesarily ending/beginning in the same place. Thus buying a Budapest-Oradea ticket "there" with Oradea-Biharkeresztes portion "back" will magically cut the total price to the half. Since Oradea-Biharkeresztes is 8 Euro, the total for such round-trip is

1/2 * (29.60 + 8) = 18.8 Euro (instead of 19.24 Euro otherwise)

------

There is even more interesting way to get a ticket: 21 euro will get you a round-trip to Oradea if you stay only 4 days there.

------

Important: unfortunately Hungarian and Romanian railway insist on the seat reservation. Never a problem to get the seat even in the last minute - but it inflates the ticket price by 3 Euro. Some people just simply lie that they are going to "Biharkeresztes" only (the last Hungarian station). I never tried that.

Forgot the link to the railway maps of both Hungary and Romania - so you know exactly where you go:

The 6:43 AM train - as almost all international trains - leaves from Budapest-Keleti station. (The 6:23 AM departure is with one transfer, it doesn't make much sense to take that, you'll catch the same 6:43 AM train at Szolnok.)

Travel Tips for Budapest

Walks and bridges, sights and views

by Starbusra

Budapest by night is a must see...
Just stroll along the 'Corso' or any of the "main" bridges. The Chain Bridge, Elisabeth Bridge or Margaret Bridge. Either side you'll be, there's gonna be a stunningly lit up, lively scenery to remember.

Not too far away is the St...

by Pegasus74

Not too far away is the St Stephen's Basilica, which dome is one of the significant three visible from Gellert Hill. The other two are the Parliament's and the Royal Palace's. The main portal is sandwiched between two tall bell towers. Don't miss the fine carvings of the twelve apostles' heads when you enter. Its interior is beautifully decorated with Hungarian paintings and mosaics.

Neo-romanesque Szent Margit church on Lehel square

by 1courage

The neoromanic style of this church (located on the Lehel square, at the opposite entrance to the Nyugati railway station of the Westend City centre) is not a happenstance. István Möller the builder selected this style to recall the XIII.th century when Saint Margareth of the Árpádian dynasty to whom the church was consacrated, lived. Möller was inspired by the church of Zsámbék the ruined church. The similarity among the 2 churches is clear.
The only pity with the church is that it`s quite dirty. I hope that within some years it will be entirely repulished like the part at the main entrance.
Also to be noticed the market nearby, built in a very strange modern style.

Academy of Sciences

by croisbeauty

The Hungarian Academy of Sciences on the large oval Roosevelt square. It was built in 1862-1865 to M. Ybl's neo-Renaissance plans, then the fashionable style.
In front of the building and in the square park there are numerous statuetes of famous Hungarians.

Stop and breathe

by elp

A few km from Budapest we can find Ocsa, a village with an old Medieval Church full of history, and a house/museum with curiosities of the old traditions and interesting "souvenirs".
There we can also find a protected reserve where we can observe migratory birds before theire travel to south for the winter, from here they have to fly across the Mediterrane to Africa, birds of prey and other species.
