Eger, Hungary

Everyone loves Eger, and it’s immediately apparent why: the beautifully preserved baroque architecture gives the town a relaxed, almost Mediterranean, feel; it is the home of the celebrated Egri Bikavér (Eger Bull’s Blood) wine known the world over; and it is flanked by two of the Northern Uplands most inviting ranges.

    Some eight trains a day link Vienna with Budapest (3,5 hours) .Trains are pluitnfel and point-to-point tickets are cheap (in the region of 20 euro from budapest to bratislava and 10 euro bratislava to vienna), you should not be worried by the prospect of having to buy more than one ticket to cover your trip (although you could theoretically buy one ticket budapest-vienna via bratislava which is valid 2 months, if you really want to do so). you should consider that bratislava to vienna is a very short trip and allows commuting back and forth in a day if you so wish.
