Prague to Budapest by Rail

It's hard to beat a rail journey across the Czech Republic and Hungary in the snow! Travel from Prague to Budapest in the middle of winter and with luck on your side you will be presented with a winter wonderland outside your window of frozen rivers and lakes, deep white snow and fairy tale wooden houses. Trains in this region of Europe are modern with great restaurant carriages where you can enjoy the local cuisine and beverages. The key to a successful adventure is to stay flexible. Hotels offer incredible discounts on rooms in January and with warm clothes and a hot meal you can explore Prague and Budapest in comfort in the colder winter months. Visit the amazing thermal baths in Budapest or test out your skills at ice skating. With museums and ancient monuments to visit in both cities and warm bars and cafes on every corner, you will have more than enough to see and do to keep you occupied for many days.
