Visiting the New Europe
Visiting the ex-Communist countries today is far easier than in the past. Independent travel is now an option, while several tour operators offer a range of package holidays, including both trips for railway enthusiasts and rail-based holidays for ordinary tourists. Our events page gives information on steam days and other attractions of which we have received details.
Tourist railways and museums in the East are often in remote locations. They may not be open on a regular basis, so you should consider checking with the management before making travel arrangements (NERHT may be able to provide contact details).
See the Foreign and Commonwealth Office web site for travel advice, including details of visa requirements where applicable.
