Budapest to Bucharest train

by kikili

I've read the answers to the Budapest to Sofia train query and want to add this variation ....Budapest to Bucharest.

I've checked the malev site and got a time for the night train from keleti...around 7pm for a around 10 am arrival the next day.
Seat 61 says there should be little problem buying a second class ticket with a 2bed sleeper supplement in Budapest the day before @ the station ? Anyone agree ? Also the cost for the 2nd class ticket one way and the sleeper supplement. I could not get the price from the malev web site...just the times !
Any help would be appreciated. This trip is for mid november. Cheers Kikili

Re: Budapest to Bucharest train

There should be no problem buying the ticket mentioned above. However, I recommend you to avoid the international cash desk at Keleti station - as most international trains depart from this station, there may be very long waiting times. Take your time and visit Nyugati station (at Nyugati palyaudvar metro station), buy your international ticket there. Or at Deli palyaudvar.

The 2nd class roundtrip ticket costs the same as the one-way ticket: 81.80 EUR. (Just to make it clear: there's a 50 or 60% discount on all roundtrip tickets valid for a journey between Hungary and Romania. That's why it's the same price or even lower for a roundtrip ticket as for a one-way ticket.)
A 2-bed sleeper on the EN Ister train costs 42EUR per person. Breakfast is included.

BTW: Malev is a Hungarian airline, the train operator is called MAV-Start.

Egg painting

by draguza

Egg Painting in Hungary is a very common tradition: there are many different painting method alive. The simplest way is to cook the egg envelopped into a dented leaf, in painting water. The covered part of the egg remains white and will show the pattern of the leaf.
The most beautiful eggs are painted by hand following traditional folk patterns.

A Prepared Traveller

We took a rollaboard since we were just visiting for an extended weekend. We visited in winter (February) so we knew to bring warm weather clothes and layers. We packed scarves, hats, gloves and plenty of warm sweaters. Shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, toothbrush, toothpaste, contact lenses, contact lens solution, deodorant, lotion, glasses and brush.

Goto Eger, which is a pleasant day trip from Budapest. Don't miss the famous wine tasting region and be sure to sample a LOT of wine. There's nothing like stumbling back to the train station, hoping in vain that you don't miss the last train...

(Not that it's happened to me, ofcourse...)
