timewise you can take eithe bus or train-difference is not that significant IMO

use Student Agency Bus (Czech) or Orangeways (Hungary) for nice, affordable bus service

(Google/search for photos of buses or their websites)

train tickets purchased on line and ahead of time should get you a better price

train is more roomy, but these bus companies have headsets for music/movies, attendents aboard, complimentary tea/coffee and newspapers

lots of previous posts regarding this

sort of depends on what mode of transport you prefer

I normally use the train system for both of these destinations
