A coach or a train? That is the question. Eastern Europe is becoming fashionable as a tourist destination. It combines the benefits of relatively inexpensive facilities with possibilities of exploring the unknown. This “terra incognita” promises the wonders of high culture and the pleasures of the great outdoors. But when we are there, how should we travel from one country, or city, to another? We discuss today whether rail travel is still the most popular and reliable transportation in the area and list rail passes that make such travel even more attractive. An interview with the Student Agency director proves that their coaches are not only for students. The other long distance coach companies in Eastern Europe are also growing, and we introduce major players in this business.
