Budapest Keleti (eastern) railway station (Hungarian: Keleti pályaudvar) is the main international and inter-city railway terminal in Budapest, Hungary.


The station stands where Rákóczi út splits to become Kerepesi Avenue and Thököly Avenue. Keleti pályaudvar translates to Eastern Railway Terminus. Its name in 1891 originates not only for its position as the easternmost of the city's rail termini, but for its original role as a terminus of the lines from eastern Hungary including Transylvania, and the Balkans. In contrast, the Nyugati (western) railway station used to serve lines toward Vienna and Paris.
