Hi,
I'm planning to travel from Istanbul to Germany (final destination is Stuttgart) I wanna know what's the cheapest plan.
I prefer to travel by land (train or bus) but I also wanna know is the air cheaper.

The Eurolines bus costs 130 Euros. Germanwings fly direct, depending on when you're travelling the price will be between 9 and 300 Euros.

To go by train, you'd probably go via Vienna, Budapest and Bucharest and it would cost somewhere in the region of 200 Euros. See http://www.seat61.com/Turkey.htm for details.

Tanks a lot,
Another question: I'm Iranian and except Turkey I need Visa for other passing countries. I already have the Schengen, visa. Which other visas will I need to have, if I wanna travel by bus or train? Also my Schengen visa is from German embassy, if I wanna enter the Schengen states from other borders except Germans, will it be possible? because I've heard that they can reject or depart me at other non-German borders.
