Budapest has good rail connections to other European cities. The majority of international trains depart from Keleti, where you can hop on a train to Vienna in three hours and Prague in under eight.
The other main stations are Nyugati, which serves airport trains, and Déli. All three are well connected by metro, so you don’t have to worry if you find yourself in the wrong one.
Deák Ferenc is the only station where all three metro lines converge. It is also where the scenic 47 and 49 tram routes begin. Blaha Lujza tér is another important station; there you can hop on the no. 4 and 6 trams which take you to some of the most interesting parts of the city.
