Hi eveyone, I am pretty sure this has been discused before, but I am a new member. I am planing on going East next month and I wanted to know information about the train prices and the best time to travel in them whether during the day or night. I am on a tight budget so I am trying to find the cheapest way to move around there. The places i am visiting are. Krakow-Poland, Prague-Check Republic, Vienna-Austria, and Budapest-Hungary. In that order. Please let me know any information, any suggestions and cautions, any input is welcome. Thank you!

I askes about this as well, more or less. my thread was called

Zone D interrail pass, Eastern Europe. Is it worth buying?

From what i can gather, a nine hour journey from Krakow to Budapest is gonna cost around €35, so it's pretty damn cheap. Not sure exactly how to get prices though. If i find out i will let you know.

If you are under 25, mention it when you are travelling. You do get a youth discount if you are under 25. I believe the overnight train from Prague to Budapest is a little over $20 (one-way). That's what it cost me to do the trip a few years ago. As far as schedules, check out this website:

The website is in German but click on the "English" or "international" link to get all the information in English. Hope this helps.

Take care,
