Touring Hungary by Train - Traveller's Notes

When you see Hungary by train be prepared to find a country full of surprises.  Everyone knows that Budapest was formed by the joining of two previous cities, Buda and Pest, but the much older city of Óbuda was there long before either of the others and served as the capital of Aquincum, province of the Roman Empire.

Crossing Hungary by train you might notice that the Hungarians do not toast when they drink. From a country with one of the strongest drinking cultures in Europe this is very odd.
