Trains in Greece - Greek Railways Organization

greece trains greece trains

The rail network of Greece is in the hands of the Greek Railways Organization, known by the initials OSE. The train in Greece can take you to different destinations inside the country or even abroad. Although travelling by train is the cheapest form of transportation it is also the slowest, and the time of arrival depends on the train you pick. The trip with trains which make all the stops takes more hours but they are cheaper in comparison to trains like Intercity which are very fast with more expensive tickets so it's really up to you to make a choice.

Greece Train Stations

In a distance of about 1 km in Athens you will find two train stations, Peloponnese station and Larissis station. As their names state in the station of Peloponnese you will find trains leading to Peloponnese only while at Larissis station you will find trains leaving for northern Greece while they make several stops in between. In Larissis station you will also find the international services apart from the domestic ones such as a daily train to Istanbul in Turkey which passes by Thessaloniki and Alexandroupoli. Also travelling via Thessaloniki is a daily train to Sofia, Bulgaria. At Thessaloniki you will be able to take a train for your journey to Skopia.

There is also a possibility to visit other parts of Europe as well but this is not only time-consuming but more expensive as well so it would probably be best to use an airplane instead.
