Train from Budapest to Uzhhorod

Can anyone help me with info about getting from Budapest to Uzhhorod via train? I've read that there is no direct train, but any info on where to transfer (Chop? Zahony?) and times the trains depart from Budapest would be super helpful. Thanks!

I am visiting Uzhorod this summer and was wondering how long the train ride is from Budapest to Uzhorod? Did you also look at renting a car options? thanks.

Hi karenmcp and welcome to Ukraine forum :)

As been mentioned many times on this forum, renting a car is not a good option to consider. Not only because of the road quality, but foremost because European rental companies are hesitant to let their cars outside the EU to Ukraine.

As for train timing, have you read the above posts, please? There are no direct trains between Budapest and Uzhhorod.

ttor suggested one of the possible connections in their post #1.

You can also take a train to Chop or Mukacheve and from there connect to Uzhhorod, by bus/mini-bus, train, or even taxi.

To say roughly, train trip between Budapest and Chop takes between 5 to 6 hours (depends on connection). Chop to Uzghorod is another half an hour, but depending on time of the day, you might need to wait a bit for next bus/local train.

Also wouldn't advise to go via Mukachevo (unless you are up for a kind of overnight trip). First of all direct 'Tisza' train is expensive, because you'll need a sleeper reservation and, second, all the border checks and bogies change are in the middle of the night

ttor, really? You suggesting to spend 10 hours on Budapest-Uzhgorod trip and travel via Kosice? And pay twice as much (comparing to Budapest-Chop-Uzghorod)? That's not even funny, unless somebody really want to see Kosice ;)

Let's look at the morning option as well, so it would be more comparable to the one in post #1

#650 (Bud.-Nyugati 6:18 or Zuglo 6:24 or Kőbánya-Kispest 6:32) till Nyíregyháza (arr.9:27), then Nyíregyháza-Zahony #6160 (dep.9:48-arr.10:57) and finally Zahony-Chop #6214 (dep.11:45-arr.13:03), making it total 5:45 to Chop. Direct international ticket Budapest-Chop cost 17 EUR. Then Chop-Uzhgorod either right away by direct minus (run like every 20-30 min. or #6524 (dep. 13:34-arr.14:06), 5 UAH (app.0,5 EUR). Resume: roughly six and a half hours* and 17,5 EUR

* afternoon and evening options Budapest-Chop are even faster (5:32 and 5:10 respectively), thus it will cut the total time even more.

p.s. while option via Kosice (as proposed in post #1) takes almost 9 hours and cost at least 27 EUR
