  1. Hello
    we are a family Travelling to Prague from India , can you please let me know the weather in Prague in May around 15th May as we have a young kid of 2 years .
    Also where can I book the Train tickets online for travelling from Budapest to Prague.
    Thanks in advance

    • Hello!
      You can look up train tickets here:
      Weather is usually very nice in Central Europe in May. So the temperature is around 20C and sunny. Of course there is no guaranty, the weather can change fast, it can also be cooler and raining. You will have to check the forecast right before you travel for any hope of accuracy.

      All the Best!

  2. Hello , we r group of 4 couples and 4 children all about 12 years…total 12 person planning to travel to Prague from Budapest. We r from Indian and on 20 days trip to Europe…we will be carrying one 20 kg check in bag and one carry on bag per person…do bus provide enough luggage space for bags? What is the best way to go from Budapest to Prague? Via bus or train? Thanks

    • Hello,
      Personally I find trains more comfortable. The train is not that expensive if you manage to buy the tickets well in advance (make sure you mark your seats, then you can all sit together with no problems) and they have plenty of space on trains as well, both for bags and just moving around yourself.
      About the buses, they are by far the least expensive way of getting around but it is a long distance with a bus. I am yet to see any luggage be left behind, the buses have a quite large space for bags, I think in that regard it would be fine.

      All the best!

  3. We plan to drive from Prague to Budapest. I read that we need a highway sticker.
    Where can we get the sticker from? Is there anything else we need to know?

    • Hello!
      If you are renting a car from Prague (or anywhere else) then those cars already should have the highway sticker for the starting country (some companies do not as it’s a good way to charge you extra). Make sure you ask about this. Otherwise, usually the first gas station after the border sells the stickers. Hungary also needs a highway sticker, so easiest is to get it at the border. If you don’t have a sticker and the police pulls you over you will be fined (some countries are introducing now also automatic checks with cameras).
      There is a fee for leaving the country with a rental. You should keep in mind that if you leave a rental car in another country there is a big extra fee for that as well.

      Good luck!

  4. I plan go to that Europe countries Prague,Budapest,Amsterdam, Liverpool and London on 17/Dec-02/01/2021 . Do you have the itinerary trip , and train . Can you advice me on this matter? Thank you in advance.

  5. Hi, thank you for your tips about transportation from/to Budapest & Prague. I will go to that countries end of December 2019. I try to buy train from Budapest to Prague for 24 December 2019, but the website told the available online booking currently, until 14 December 2019. I just wondering, when I can buy tickets for 24 Dec since I need the ticket to apply the Schengen Visa. I already sent the inquiry to Czech railways but no response at all.

    Can you advice me on this matter? Thank you in advance.

  6. Hi, I travelling from Berlin to Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest in that order in Oct 19. Any suggestion on which is the best way like by train, bus or shared drive for the best sceneries and stops. I am open to suggestions. Was told that by train to Prague has the best scenery compared to others.

    Your advice please.. thanks you in advance

  7. Thanks for this, I am travelling to our Central European offices in both Cities in October. I want to combine the trip so was trying to see the most suitable transport method;this was very useful.

    I am female and will be travelling alone, generally are the trains safe and reliable?
    Although the convenience of saving travel time and the reassurance of the security measures on a plane might make the most sense after all even with the travel to airport and extra security queues. I did quite like the idea of the train and a few sites along the way though!

  8. I’m traveling from Berlin to Budapest and would like a stop in Dresden for a day and I’m flying home from Prague. I can’t find an easy way to get from Berlin to Budapest with Dresden in between. Any ideas????

    • You can take a 2h bus or train from Berlin to Dresden. Then from Dresden to Budapest it’s a much longer trip, about 700km. You might consider flying, although there are probably no cheap options. The alternatives are taking a train or bus to Prague and then from Prague to Budapest there are already more options.
