my friend and I would like to take a train from Istanbul to Bukarest. Is it possible to take our bicycles with us on the train? I found out that there is this train named Bosphorus express (Bosfor Ekspresi)) but is it possible to take bicycles on this train? Or are there any other possibilitys to get to Bukarest with our bicycles, like a bus or something like this?
Hi Hanna. There’s no luggage car in Bosphor Express. So bicycles may be a problem. Couchettes do not have enough space for 4 passengers and 2 bicycles at the same time, sleepers may. On the other hand, train is generally empty, there are many space. Best option would be to visit Sirkeci with bicycles, see how they respond.
