Interactive Map Shows How Fast You Can Travel Across Europe by Train

Have you ever thought of going on the ultimate trip across Europe? If so, here’s something to consider. Many tourists travelling Europe are opting for the train instead of a plane or car to get around. Trains are considered reliable, fast and relatively cheap. But as highlighted by a new research project, there are major differences within Europe in terms of how fast you can cover the same distance.

A PhD student at the University of Vienna selected 28 European cities and illustrated which surrounding cities or areas could be reached within a certain time.

The morale: If you prefer fast rides, start somewhere close to Paris or London.
