More than 30 trains a day provide direct links between Budapest and no fewer than 25 other European cities. Railjets to Vienna run every 1-2 hours. There is also a popular network of inter-city trains linking Budapest with the main Hungarian cities. International trains operate from the three largest stations: Keleti (Eastern), Nyugati (Western), Déli (Southern).
