I Think Belgium has the lowest ticket prices in West-Europe. When I left Holland I decided to choose for the Eurostat instead of Easyjet etc. I looked agt the Internet for prices. A one way ticket from Rotterdam to London would cost me in Holland 270 Euro. I bought the same ticket in Belgium from any Belgian Station to London for only 36 Euro. But that also got to do with thr fact that the NMBS/SNCB is more active in the Eurostar programm than the Dutch Railway's.

you can buy a youth go-pass with 10 one-way-trips for 45€ (so 4,50€ per trip).

No, you can't Breda is a city in Holland, Antwerp is in Belgium. A Go-Pass won't allow you to travel abroad. Otherwise I would travel to Paris by Go-Pass

Yes, but they won't go faster then 160 KM/H and they will only go from Amsterdam to Breda. That is because AnsoldoBreda is not on time with the deliverie of the fast trains

From my experience the seating in italian regional trains (at least those in northeastern Italy) are more comfortable than in german regional trains. And I was actually surprised by the punctuality of the trains! (I took the regional train Treviso-Udine-Trieste once and the regional train Trieste-Venice three times this august).

Poland

Used trains of the company TLK as much as possible, they're the most average in price, speed and comfort.

Poznań-Szczecin
1, 243 kilometres
2, 2:45
3, 88.4 km/h
4, €24,40
5, €24,40
6, €24,40
7, €5,02
8, 17 daily (10 TLK)
9, 0

Kraków-Warszawa
1, 296 kilometres
2, 3:20
3, 88,9 km/h
4, €29,27
5, €29,27
6, €29,27
7, €4,94
8, 20 daily (9 TLK)
9, 0

Łódź-Białystok

1, 319 kilometres
2, 5:15
3, 60,8 km/h
4, €29,27
5, €29,27
6, €29,27
7, €4,59
8, 11 daily (5 TLK)
9, Usually 1 change in Warszawa, on direct train every day.

Currently the fastest train in Poland is the EIC 1803 CHROBRY from Warszawa to Szczecin, which averages 98,7 km/h over the entire stretch out of Warszawa to Szczecin, and between Kutno and Poznan it averages 124 km/h.

The slowest regular trains in Poland can be found on any line out of Kraków (except to Warszawa) due to massive construction going on there. The fastest scheduled rail connection between Katowice and Rzeszów right now makes it up to a staggering average of 38,2 km/h between the two cities with one change in Kraków.

Kraków to Zakopane isn't much better with the fastest train averaging 42,9 km/h (REGIO 33123 JANOSIK)

The fastest (non-Warszawa) regular connection out of Kraków is the one to Nowy Sącz with an average of 46,6 km/h.
