Magyar Államvasutak, which translates as Hungarian State Railways and is universally known as MÁV, links up with the European rail network in all directions. In Budapest almost all international trains arrive and depart from Keleti station (Eastern train station; VIII. Kerepesi út 2-6); however, some trains to certain destinations in the east (eg. Romania) leave from Nyugati station (Western train station; VI. Teréz körút 55-57), while Déli station (Southern train station; I. Krisztina körút 37) handles trains to some destinations in the south. These are not hard and fast rules, so always make sure you check which station the train leaves from when you buy a ticket. For 24-hour information on international train services call nationwide 06-40-49 49 49 or in Budapest 461-5500.
