We are thinking about our 2014 2 weeks holiday for October. We (wife and myself) are thinking of going to Hungary, but unfortunately its not a destination that you can easily find good itineraries for it. We will not be driving, as heard that its not too safe, and I have never drove abroad as I'm used to RHD and a small country (Malta). So have some questions: Is the train system efficient and good for travelling? Apart from Budapest (so not to spend all days there) what other location or 2 locations do you suggest to stay as a base. The bases must be easy to do short trips to other places (between 1hr and 1.5hours) by public transport. We like architecture, scenery and museums and good food. We will arrive in Budapest and depart from Budapest.
