Every year, Europe attracts millions of tourists and it's no wonder why. The culture and landscapes of every country are different and that is what makes it the most interesting.

While train travelling in Europe is a remarkable experience, it can actually cost you more than flights. Even with all the deals and packages, the prices are likely to end up more. This is especially true when the duration is longer for destinations far away. But if you are not on a tight budget and you're in for making a bucket of memories along the way, then train travelling is definitely worth it. You can also choose a flight for one destination, and keep train travelling for the rest of your plan.
All in all, there are actually several country-to-country European routes which are actually faster, via trains as compared to by planes. Not only that, but you can also get to choose the kind of train you'd like, depending on whether you want to travel at night, want scenic views, as well as the three types of passes available. And if you are not travelling from one country to another, you can always catch a regional train for just a bit of train travelling experience. There is so much to choose from, so the infographic below will sum it all up for you to have the most memorable European vacation ever!
