Overview

Experience the thrill of extensive train travel on the national rail networks of the Balkan countries with this convenient rail pass.

The Balkan Flexipass delivers one exciting rail ride through the cities, villages, and stunning landscapes that defined the start of European civilization : Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania (only trains operated by REGIOTRANS), Serbia, and Turkey. And the pass lets you decide where and when you want to travel—in either consecutive or non-consecutive days.

You’ll be amazed by the rugged mountain views of Bulgaria’s Balkan Peninsula and humbled by its famous monasteries. Visit Romania’s romantic medieval region of Transylvania (“The Land Beyond the Forest”), after you’ve basked in a nearby therapeutic lake or spa. Or, just mingle with the locals in Macedonia’s Old Skopje Bazaar, a bustling, cobbled-street marketplace selling Turkish teas and fine linens. Each and every location is a touchstone of archaeological, architectural, and cultural magnificence. And you can experience one or all when you get on track with the Balkan Flexipass.
