In june I will cycle from my hometown in Belgium to Istanbul. Once in Istanbul, I want to take the train back to Bucharest, Romania to stay another week or so there (to visit some friends). Has anyone some info about the Bosphorus Express which is the direct train between Istanbul and Bucharest? I cant find the proper information on the website of the Turkish Railways and there is only a phone number to ask for information (I will try that later :) )
- I found out there is a replacing bus service for the train for some parts of the route - as there are some construction works going on. Is that correct?
- Can you easily take your bike both on the train and the bus?
- Is it necessary to make a reservation long before?
Thank you very much to anyone who would read this and can give me some more info!
