Budapest, the capital of Hungary is the kind of city that has something to offer any traveller. The Danube river divides the city into two parts; on the west bank, Buda and on the east, Pest. The leafy hills of Buda are home to some of the main tourist sights at Castle Hill. The busier, more commercial Pest has plenty of tourist appeal of its own though: St Stephen's Basilica, the Opera House, the Terror Museum and the second largest Synagogue in the world among them. And after a long day of taking in the sights, nothing is more rewarding than "taking to the waters" in one of the numerous Turkish baths that the city is famous for.




The city is divided by the Danube into two major parts: Buda and Pest.


Buda is the western part of the Hungarian capital Budapest on the west bank of the Danube. The name Buda takes its name from the name of Bleda the Hun ruler, whose name is also Buda in Hungarian. Buda comprises about one-third of Budapest's complete territory and is mostly wooded and hilly. Notable landmarks include the Buda Castle and the Citadella.


Pest is the eastern, mostly flat part of Budapest, Hungary, comprising about two thirds of the city's territory. It is separated from Buda, the other part of Budapest, by the Danube River. Among its most notable parts are the Inner City, including the Hungarian Parliament, Heroes' Square and Andrássy Avenue. In colloquial Hungarian, "Pest" is often used for the whole capital of Budapest.

Getting There

By Plane

Hungary's main international airport is Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD/LHBP) (formerly known as Ferihegy), located about 16 kilometres from the city centre of Budapest. Terminal 1 was recently refurbished and serves low cost carriers, with a glass wall dividing them into Schengen and non-Schengen flights. Terminal 2A is used by MALEV Hungarian Airlines and its code-share partners and since 2008 all flights to Schengen countries (except for the ones with budget airlines) leave here, while 2B is used by other carriers flying to non-Schengen destinations.

To/from the airport

  • Rail: Hungarian State Railways runs suburban and long-distance services between Terminal 1 and Nyugati Railway Station in Budapest city centre through Kőbánya-Kispest. The trip takes approximately 25 minutes.
  • Bus: Bus no. 200 links all the terminals with the southern end of the 3rd metro line (M3).
  • An Airport Bus departs Liszt Ferenc International Airport every 10 minutes, providing links to the city centre and Budapest's metro system.

  • Taxis and rental cars are both widely available at Liszt Ferenc International Airport as well.

By Train

Budapest has international rail connections to several European capitals. The major railway stations are: Eastern Railway Station (Keleti pályaudvar), Southern Railway Station (Déli pályaudvar) and Western Railway Station (Nyugati pályaudvar). The first two are accessible by M2 (second metro line), while the last one with M3 (third metro line). International ticket offices are located at these railway stations. Hungarian National Railways (MÁV) have a good website which includes price information on international train tickets.

A regular hydrofoil service links Budapest with Bratislava (Slovakia) and Vienna (Austria).Mahart offers boat travel on the Danube river from Spring to Autumn between Budapest and Szentendre, Vác, Visegrád and Esztergom. Budapest Transport Limited has ferries in and around the capital only.



Getting Around

By Car

Apart from the summer holiday, Budapest has heavy traffic with long-lasting traffic jams in the morning and in the afternoon. If you don't want to spend your visit to Budapest in a traffic jam, leave your car in the hotel's garage, and use the public transport.

By Public Transport

Budapest's public transport system is quite effective, though locals are often doubtful of that. The system is made up of approximately 180 bus lines, 20 tram lines and 14 trolleybus lines. The underground transportation is served by three metro lines. The first metro line (M1) is the oldest one in mainland Europe, and the second oldest (after the London one) in all of Europe. Other means of transport include a funicular (to the castle hill) a cogwheel railway (to Széchenyi Hill in the Buda Hills), the children's railway in the Buda Hills, a chair lift, and a temporary boat service during summer time on the Danube river. More info on timetables and ticket prices on the BKV website. The following lines are particularly useful:

  • Metro 1, 2, 3 connect the suburbs with the biggest transport hubs, numerous touristic highlights and central hotels.
  • Tram 2 runs along the river Danube on Pest side.
  • Tram 4, 6 follow Nagykörút, Pest's inner ring road.
  • Bus 7, 7E, 173 and 173E connect Keleti railway station with the city center and many points of interest in Buda and Pest.
  • Bus 16, 16A and 116 go to Buda castle.
  • Bus 105 connect Hősök tere (Hero's Square), goes up and down Andrássy boulevard to Deák square/Erzsébet square before it goes across the Chain Bridge to Buda and passes by Déli pályaudvar (Southern railway station).
  • Bus 200E serves the airport.

By Foot

Many of Budapest's highlights are easy to visit on footwal and in the centre of the city you find pedestrian zones. Car drivers tend to respect pedestrians and often give advantage on a cross-walk even if there is no traffic light.

By Bike

Budapest is not a very bike-friendly city and there are just a few separate bike lanes. You can rent bikes with Budapest Bike, Yellow Zebra Bike and Bike Base.




  • Trofea Grill Restaurant - Trofea Grill Restaurant has two locations which are run with the same premise. A great, reasonably priced buffet where you can eat as much as you can of the diverse foods on offer, for a fixed price. High quality food at a great price! Address: 1145 Budapest, Erzsebet Kiralyne, utja 5 and also at 1117 Budapest Hauszmann Alajos and Szeremi ut corner




Hungarian wines and liquors are world famous, and you can get them at affordable prices in the local bars or grocery stores. If you want to drink something what the locals like, something Hungarian, you can try some hot spirits like Palinka, Unicum, local wines from any of the Bortarsasag (Wine Society) shops, Torley champagne, and typical Hungarian soft drinks like the fizzy drink of the socialism, the grape flavoured Traubisoda, which is still popular.

Keep Connected


There are plenty of internet cafés to be found in Budapest, with the concept being rather fashionable. Prices vary, but generally 100 HUF will buy you around 10 minutes and it's about 200 HUF for 30 minutes. Also, most dining places these days have wifi. If you drink/eat anything in the cafes/restaurants you can just ask for the wifi password and use the internet easily.


See also: International Telephone Calls

Hungary's calling code is 36 and Budapest phone numbers, mobiles excepted, start with 06 1 regardless of where the call originates from. It is cheapest to place calls in the evening, weekends or on public holidays. There are 3 mobile operators in Hungary: Vodafone, Pannon and T-Mobile. Depending on the operator, mobile phone numbers start either with 06 20 (Pannon), 06 30 (T-Mobile) or 06 70 (Vodafone). Free numbers start with 06 80, but there is also a 'half price' number starting with 06 40. They also have their own prepaid service and travellers that are planning to stay in Hungary for longer periods might want to consider buying a prepaid SIM-card.

Public phones can be found throughout the city and are operated by 10-, 20-, 50- and 100-forint coins or T-Com phone cards. Phone cards can be purchased at the usual outlets; kiosks, post offices and petrol stations among others.

There are also numerous cheap phone cards to call internationally and are available at assorted outlets. These includes T-Com, EZ Phone, Bellafone and plenty of others offering various discount rates. It's smart to check the current rate to the destination you plan to call the most and compare this with other cards. Also compare the cost for establishing a connection as this can make a big difference in the real 'per minute' cost.

To call internationally, dial 00, wait for the tone and then dial the country code, town/city code and the rest of the number.


Magyar Post is the national postal service of Hungary. Their English version only seems to concentrate on stamps though, but you will find helpfull English speaking staff in most of the main post offices throughout the country.

Post offices can be found throughout Budapest and generally are open between 8:00am and 6:00pm. Some of the main post offices do have longer opening hours, including the following:

  • Moszkva Square Post Office, XII. Krisztina út 6-8, Monday-Friday 7:00am-08:00pm Saturday 7:00am-2:00pm.
  • Nyugati Train Station Post Office, VIII. Teréz krt. 51, Monday-Friday 7:00am-8:00pm Saturday 7:00am-6:00pm.
  • Keleti Train Station Post Office, VI. Baross tér 11/C, Monday-Friday 7:00am-9:00pm Saturday 7:00am-2:00pm.

You can buy post your letter and parcels here and buy stamps, although you can buy these at kiosks as well. Hungarian postal services are generally reliable, relatively cheap (especially domestic services) and fast, with most of the postcards and/or letters being delivered within a week to other European countries, 10 days to several weeks outside of the continent. Anything of value is best to be send by registered post. For parcels, you might also use international companies like TNT, UPS or DHL.
