Travel by night?

Most of the journey between Budapest and Split can be spent with sleeping, so the trip is even a relaxing way to get to the destination. In the evening, the landscape of Lake Balaton rocks the passenger to sleep, at night the scent of the forests of the Dinaric Mountains is filtered through the windows, and in the morning the view of the Adriatic and the train descending on the hillsides are the perfect view to start the day. There is no need to be afraid of traffic jams and accidents on the highway, nor to worry about package problems and annoying inspection processes that are common when flying. In Split, the train station is located right on the beach, beside the walls of the old town, near the port. When traveling by train, you can save up to two nights, the first and last day of the holiday can be complete. Traveling by train is convenient and safe – and the most environment friendly way.
