From May 3 tourists will be able to travel in luxury between Praha and Budapest with the inaugural run of a land cruise programme by the Imperial Railway Co. Sleeping cars from the Hungarian Presidential train have been married to a pair of Wagons-Lits Dining Cars to form a luxury train, which will be steam hauled by day during its 1040 km journey. The £849 three-day tour uses a route which has been chosen to take in the tourist attractions of Eger in eastern Hungary, Slovakia’s Tatra mountains, and the Plzen brewery in the Czech Republic.
