Traveling by yourself
The bus and train are two means of transport most commonly used. The rail network is dense and it is very easy to travel from one city to another. Beware of rush hours because tickets are often only available for sale one hour before departure. Local buses travel over short distance and are often the only way to get to some small medieval villages.;
