16. April 2024.

The European Union's initiative, DiscoverEU, enables young people to travel across Europe, and as of 2018, more than 200.000 people have taken advantage of this opportunity.

Use this opportunity to experience freedom of movement, better understand European diversity, enjoy its cultural richness, make new friends and finally - discover yourself. It's about Interrail tickets which is valid for one month and with which young people can travel Europe completely free of charge.

You will mostly travel by rail. To make access to the entire continent as easy as possible, you will be offered alternatives such as buses or ferries. In exceptional cases, when no other means of transport is available, travel is permitted by plane. This will ensure that young people living in remote areas or on islands also have the opportunity to participate.
