This train has several options, 2-bed sleeper, 3-bed sleeper, 4-bed couchette.

There’s no restaurant car, you need to be prepared for this in advance.

The 940-km-long travel lasts almost one day. Train travels between Istanbul and Sofia during night, and between Sofia and Bucharest during day which makes it possible to see beautiful nature of Balkan region while travelling.

Istanbul train station (Halkali) is far away from city center, but there’s a connected bus service. Train station as at center in Bucharest.

  1. I would also suggest the routes serving Adana from Ankara and the (former? I hope it runs again!) one from Haydarpasa too: the section down from Ülükisla to Yenice especially is stupendous!
