Travelling from Warsaw, krakow, prague to budapest.

by JoyTraveller


I am flying into Warsaw, then going to Krakow, Prague (Czech) and Budapest (Hungary). From this route, do you think I should use Eurail? I am international tourist from Singapore. Will English language be used in railway stations? I can only converse in English.

From this route, is it better to leave from Budapest airport or backtrack to Warsaw airport where i came from? If i fly out from Budapest, I have to pay about an extra amount of usd300.
thank you and looking forward to advice.

Eurail is not a train operator. It is a ticketing agency, which charges commission (like Raileurope). If you mean should you buy a Eurail pass, the answer is no: the point-to-point total of the journeys you intend to make will almost certainly be less than the cost of the pass. You will still have to make and pay for seat reservations/sleepers even with a Eurail pass.

You will be able to find your way easily enough. Many people do speak some English, especially in the places you intend to visit (because they are visited by many tourists) and especially at stations/in restuarants etc. You can easily write down where you are going on a piece of paper if you are worried (or you can ask the hotel to write it for you in the appropriate language). Take small phrasebooks too: they are very useful for reading signs, menus etc.


will give you times for all European trains (or the vast majority) in English. An excellent and easy site to use, but will only give fares for journeys starting in Germany.

For Poland look at www.polrail.com

For the Czech Republic look at


For Hungary look at


All links in English. They may not give you fares, but these are extremely reasonable in the countries you intend to visit.

You'll need to find the fare from Budapest to Warsaw to work out whether it will be worth backtracking: this may not be very easy. Hopefully another VT-er will be able to help.

One of the possibility:I would buy return ticket Singapore- Krakow if the price of overnight train Budapest-Krakow justified it.You have to check if it makes sense.You can reach Warszawa from Krakow within 2.45 h by express train for ~~100 PLN (one way).

Travel Tips for Krakow

Auschwitz is a must. We had a...

by grappy_grey

Auschwitz is a must. We had a guided tour by a Polish woman who was Jewish. Most of her family had died there. I was very touched by this visit.
The salt mines at Wieliczka was awe inspiring too. I usually go on Pilgrimage when visiting a country, this one was very special to me. I went to the shrine of Divine Mercy which is in a convent in Lagiewniki.
The memory of this is still vivid. I carry it all the time in my mind. I would love to go back there again.

Statue of Christ

by Ash59

If you approach the tourist entrance from the front of the Church, it is likely that you will miss this statue of Jesus on the cross that is up on the wall above your heads. We certainly did not spot it until we happened to approach the rear of the Church from a side road!

Lajkonik Parade

by queenpamela

To commemorate Poland's victory over the Tatars, in 1241, the Lajkonik Parade is held each Spring in the Market Place of Krakow, Poland.

A disguised Tatar warrior with a hobbyhorse fastened to the waist, called Lajkonik (lie-KOH-neek), in Polish, prances around chasing people with his mace celebrating the occasion with dancing and merrymaking. It is said that if he touches you with his mace, it brings good luck throughout the year!

Shaking hands and kissing

by Maggies

Well, between guys it's easy, they shake hands, no matter if it's the first time they meet, they are friends or family. They kiss only on very special ocasions , like the one below.
Between girls or guys and girls:
you shake hands the first time you meet,
you kiss one time in the cheek when you're friends,
you kiss 3 times in the cheeks when you're family and sometimes between friends too!!!!
On the picture there are my best friends after their wedding ceremony, kissing each other's parents. Definitelly 3 times!

A large mound of excitement

by Orchid

I''m not sure how many folk visit Krakow's mounds. They are a curious phenomenon, originally suspected of being burial places of kings, and more recently thrown up as monuments to national heroes (for example Tadeuz Kosckiusko).

Take a tram from the centre up to the Salvator terminus, then walk up the tree lined road (or wait for a bus) to the mound atop Sikornik Hill. There are cafe's a chapel to St Bronislawa and even a hotel here, plus views to the centre, the ring of the Planty and away beyond to smoky Nowa Huta and its smokestacks
