Szeged to Spain

by ruth87

We are considering traveling to Lucia, Spain, in March from Szeged. We are located in Timisoara, Romania, but I haven't found a train connection without going to Bucharest first, so want to know if leaving from Szeged is a solution. Any travel tips regarding train travel between these destinations? Is it possible to buy an inclusive ticket or must you buy individual segments?

A good place to find out about train times is You can indeed start in Szeged, but it will be a very long trip anyway. And where are you going to? I can't find a "Lucia" in Spain, and Santa Lucia is on the Canaries...

Wether someone will be able to sell you a TCV ticket for the whole trips is questionable, and this is probably quite expensive too.

I see that from Timisoara you can get to Budapest by train. From there (depending on where you want to be in Spain) there are really only two practical routes.
- Night train Budapest - Zürich. Then Zürich - Geneva - Montpelier - Barcelona.
- Day train Budapest - München. Then night train München - Paris. Then either,
a) take a connecting TGV to the Spanish border, and onwards from there.
b) spend the day in Paris and take a night train to Madrid of Barcelona.

There are two daily train connections from Timisoara Nord to Budapest-Keleti. They also call at Bekescsaba, where you can change to a local train to Szeged - I don't really understand if you need that or it was just an alternative to go via Szeged. Train times from Timisoara: 6:54 and 16:54, journey time 5 hrs.
Eurolines Romania also operates a Bucharest - Budapest coach calling at Timisoara, autogara Eurolines and terminating at Budapest, Nepliget, not calling anywhere in Hungary, officially at least. (Most bus services to Romania do call at Ferihegy airport, but it's not shown in official schedules. Anyway, the airport is a 45-minute trip from Nepliget bus station.) This bus service runs only on Tuesdays, departing at 17:00 from Timisoara. Journey time to Budapest 6 hrs.

I'm sorry, the Bucuresti-Timisoara-Budapest bus runs on Saturdays, not Tuesdays.

Travel Tips for Szeged

Unexpected holiday homes

by GillianMcLaughlin

On the banks of the river Tisza there is a small collection of houses on stilts. I was fascinated by them when I spotted then from the opposite bank of the river. My hosts explained that they were used mainly by people as holiday homes. Many of the owners are actually locals and they come down to stay on the river in the summer, in an effort to avoid to some degree the crippling summer heat of Szeged.

Without question, if you are visiting Szeged you have to visit the Cathedral, even if you are not the religious type. The inside is beatifully decorated and has to be seen to be believed! It would probably be walking up along the Tisza at night, then coming up to the Cathedral, seeing it illuminated beautifully from the outside. Of course, other than that, the fondest memory would be meeting my girlfriend there!

Village within a city

Alsovaros or Lowertown, close to a railway station, has many interesting small houses:old and new, renovated and delapidated. Characteristic for this part of Hungary are so called"napsugaras hazok"( napsugar meaning sun ray). Notice the small window in the attic (locals call it 'God's eye') and sun rays coming outwardly from it.
