Train Advise for Belgrade - Budapest - Krakow Trip

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are taking a train from Belgrade to Budapest, and then from Budapest to Krakow. We have a few days in each place during the Easter Break.

I am looking for some advice on train travel in this area. What I most want to know is the cheapest place to get tickets. I read that it is cheapest to get them at the station. Is this true? And if so does it hold if you buy them right before, or do you have to do so in advance? How popular are these trains? Are reservations generally recommended? I have been to Serbia previously and I speak the language, so communicating will not be an issue at least on that part of the journey.

We are thinking of taking the Eurocity Avala train from Belgrade to Budapest at 7am. And the strait overnight train from Budapest to Krakow. Any advice for traveling on these routes? Things to watch out for? My friend and I are both students in our twenties on exchange in Norway. We are visiting my relatives in Serbia before touring through Budapest and Krakow during our break. My friend is a guy, I am a girl we figured it would be safe to travel by train. I am a little concerned over the overnight train from Budapest to Krakow but there does not seem to be any other option.
