I am currently staying in Zagreb and I am leaving in two days (17-1-2023). I need to get to Istanbul by the end of the month due to a flight I have the on the first of February from Istanbul airport. I was planning to travel there through either Belgrade or Sarajevo and then Sofia. But this morning I found out that it isn’t possible to go to Sofia through Belgrade or Sarajevo.
I found an alternative route through Budapest, Bucharest, Sofia and then Istanbul (if it’s possible/practicable I could skip Sofia and go to Istanbul directly from Bucharest). But here some problems emerge:
- firstly I only have three traveling days left, and I don't think that is enough to cover the entire journey.
- secondly I know how to travel from Zagreb to Bucharest. But not the rail planner app doesn’t show any trains from Bucharest to Sofia (in fact Sofia train stations don’t appear at all) or Istanbul.
I am planning to stay a few nights in Budapest. Hopefully I can figure a way out to get to Istanbul from there. Depending on whats practical I will also stay for a few days in either Bucharest or Sofia; but not both. I really hope that somebody could help me 🙏.
Thank you in advance
