Overview

Hungarian State Railways (or MAV) is the national train operator for Hungary. Following a relatively turbulent history, the company operates a range of national and international rail routes from the country's many major stations.

The fastest trains are given the InterCity (IC) prefix. There are also express trains (gyorsvonat). Local trains, known as szemelyvonat are relatively slow and tend only to have second class accommodation. 

Accommodation

Accommodation and facilities onboard MAV trains vary depending on the route taken. IC and IP services offer first class accommodation, whereas regional routes tend not to.
