I would recommend at Keleti pu (station) one or two days prior to 8/30. Another method would be through raileurope.com but there may be a commission. Looks like it's an eight and a half hour trip.

In reference to your posting on driving up to Krakow, I have driven in Hungary traveling up to Holloko and back to Budapest through Szentendre and had no problems.

MAV (Hungarian RR office may still be located in corner office on Andrassy - take yellow line Metro to Opera station & walk a block or two in same direction the train was heading (toward Oktagon stop) and office on right. Assuming MAV still located there, go in, take a number, talk to person at info counter re route and ticketing. Can purchase at these offices.

You still are going on the LONG and complex trip by RR to Krakow? Make sure you take into account any transfers that you may have to make in order to do it. International European train info on German RR site http://bahn.hafas.de. See the MAV website ELVIRA.hu. Limited info.

By the way, for those driving in Europe, go to ViaMichelin.com for directions, such as to Krakow from Budapest.
