Croatia is one of the neighbors of Hungary and a wonderful destination in Europe for travelers. Train tickets can be booked between these two countries. When considering traveling from Hungary to Croatia by train, you need to take your passport with you and get an onward or return ticket from Croatia that is already booked before travel. An American citizen can stay in Croatia for up to ninety days if he has a United States passport, even without any visa.
You have to decide on your route. There are numerous trains traveling from Budapest of Hungary to Zagreb of Croatia. Due to the boomerang shape of Croatia, trips will typically take from six to sixteen hours. However, you cannot reach Dubrovnik by train.
It is important that you bring sufficient Hungarian forints in order to pay for tickets, since credit is unlikely to be accepted. Depending upon your route, first-class train tickets from Hungary to Croatia may cost anywhere between 4,000 forints and 12,000 forints. In addition, you need to decide on when you would want to leave. The official website of a Hungarian railway named Elvira is a good source of information on timetables. Duration and frequency will significantly vary, depending upon the city that you wish to visit.
