Trains in Romania
The mystery of Romania attracts many travelers a year who are never disappointed by its intricate architecture and rich history. The Romanian rail network, the Căile Ferate Române (CFR), connects every town, city, and municipality throughout the country.
Types of Trains in Romania
Both EuroCity (EC) and EuroNight (EN) fast trains operate within Romania as well as connect Bucharest with neighboring capitals like Budapest, Hungary, and Belgrade, Serbia.
The fastest domestic lines are the InterCity (IC) trains. They connect Bucharest to all of the smaller towns and cities throughout Romania and to the Black Sea.
The InterRegional trains (IR)—formerly divided between Rapid (R) and Accelerat (A)—are the main regional lines for medium and long-distance service. Regio trains (formerly known as “Personal”) are slower, local commuter trains that stop at every small town along their routes.
Romania has some scenic Special lines (S) and several private railways as well. Some of these include the Cf Trans, Serv Trans, Keolis, VIA TERRA Spedition, Regiotrans and Ferotrans.
