Can we take our large dog (20kg) on the train in Turkey? He will not fit in a cage. We wish to travel from Bucharest to Istanbul and then Istanbul to Sofia. Do you know if we can also take him on the train in Bulgaria?
Dogs are allowed only in cages which can be carried on knees and only in standard carriages (not in sleepers or couchettes) in Turkey.
Unfortunately, the trains between Bucharest-Istanbul and Istanbul-Sofia have only sleepers and couchettes. See details of trains using below links.
