Bohinjska Bistrica and Bled Jezero on this rail line are likely going to be the closest stations to where you'll be.<br /><br />From either of these stations, a connection to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/indexhtml">Budapest</a> would take approximately 9 hours and involves 3 train changes along the way; once in Jesenice, once in Villach, and then once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/austria/vienna/index.html" rel="nofollow">Vienna</a>.

It looks like there is an option straight through during the day, but it takes around 15 hours and involves 6 train changes en route; once in Jesenice, once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/slovenia/ljubljana/index.html" rel="nofollow">Ljubljana</a>, once in Metlika, once in Karlovac, once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/zagreb/index.html" rel="nofollow">Zagreb</a>, and then once in Dombovar..
