Hi! I’m new to this board but just read an older thread about this basic question and was hoping to get some additional information. I’ll be traveling through Budapest, Krakow and Prague this summer (in that order) and am trying to get a feel for how expensive rail travel between the cities will end up being. This would be in late May 09. We would train out of Budapest on 5/27 (to Krakow) and then out of Krakow (to Prague) on 5/30. If anyone could shed some light on this for me, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks in advance for helping!

International train tickets are almost impossible to price. The prices in the old thread you read should give you a good idea. Try putting this itinerary in “railsaver” (under the “booking” tab at the top of the page). Railsaver probably won’t recommend a railpass and will give you an estimate of the cost of the tickets if you buy them at the station in Europe.
You might be able to get exact prices from The Czech rail site http://www.cd.cz Polish rail site http://www.pkp.pl (I’m not sure there’s an English page) and Hungarian rail site http://www.mav.hu If you’re planning on overnight trains, you might find helpful information here: http://ourworld.comp…
