Greece ‘s railway network is approximately 2,500 km long, covering a large part of the mainland and linking the country with central Europe and Turkey .

Transport of passengers, luggage and driver-accompanied vehicles is ensured by regular daily service. Timetables are determined on a yearly basis.

Greek railroads meet high technical standards , comprising trains of the Intercity type (express or regular) and regular trains (high-speed rail). When travelling by rail, it is worth observing the architecture of old stations along the route , most of which were built in the late 19 th century and constitute unique symbols of early industrial architecture.

The Greek railway network passes through many landscapes of rare beauty. Most of them even constitute an exclusive privilege of OSE (Hellenic Railways Organization) passengers as only trains are allowed to pass through.

Both by means of the regular itineraries of Greek Railways Organization and the special excursion trains (conventional or steam-powered museum trains upon request), passengers can take a tour in the magnificent Greek inland. Ancient Olympia, Mycenae, Kalavrita, Nafplio, Vouraikos gorge, Kaiafas, mountainous Arcadia, Asopos ravine, Pilio, Tempi, Platamonas, Pieria coasts, Nestos valley, Evros Delta are some of the places that travellers can admire during their journey by train.
