As Morski writes, Hungarians will once again be able to hop on the direct Budapest-Split this summer. As of June the 10th, the Adria InterCity night line will be introduced, which will connect these two European cities three times a week during the very height of the summer season, while it will run twice a week before and after the season, Hungarian Railways announced.
The direct Budapest-Split train will run from the City of Budapest on Tuesdays and Fridays from the 10th to the 19th of June and from the 29th to the 24th of August, and from the City of Split on Wednesdays and Saturdays. During the high season, from June the 19th to August the 29th, it will depart from Budapest on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and from Split on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The trip will last for fourteen hours and will mostly be done at night. Passengers will be offered the ability to sleep the night in air-conditioned cars, and according to Hungarian Railways, the train will depart from Budapest at 18:45. They will depart from Split at 18:27, and arrive back in Budapest the next day at 09:35.
The direct Budapest-Split train line, they say, is tailored to all requirements. The sleeping car has cabins with four or six beds, while solo passengers, couples and smaller families can spend the night in smaller cabins with one to three beds.
This train is also equipped with a restaurant wagon, which will be open throughout the entire duration of the trip, and all passengers will receive a welcome package upon boarding, while a hot drink and breakfast are all included in the initial ticket price.
Passengers will be taken care of during the trip by the train’s staff, who, they say, will offer additional food and drinks at reasonable prices. The price of the trip for an adult starts from 43 euros, and for children aged 6-14 from 15 euros. For a night in a double cabin you need to pay 69 euros per person and per direction, while solo travellers can have their own cabin for 99 euros.
