Truly impressive old World train station with incredible design and vast openness. Grungy but we felt very safe. Hungarian police have moved all the vagrants out (thank God for common sense and civic pride).

Tbh people moaning about being directed to international ticket office, should have read the other offices ‘internal journeys’ over each hatch. Once at ‘international’ , very quick and cheap. Bratislava trip fir €7 each I’ll take my chances for that price

This station is old, dirty and dilapidated. I would not want any woman to be here alone at night- very sketchy. Very few English language signs and very little helpful signage at all. Thankfully the visitor info was still open and able to advise on...More
