any people has wine tasting experience in hungary? like eger or tokaj?
is that convenient if I go for wine tasting without a car?
and how much money is usually needed for wine tasting in hungary
I've been trying to use the www.volanbusz.hu / http://www.volan.eu website to search for bus routes. The whole system seems to be completely in Hungarian right after the homepage.
Is there any way to buy Hungarian domestic bus tickets somewhere online (maybe using another company) so that the booking system would be in English? My Google searches can't find any options. Eurolines only sells international tickets. Or do we just need to buy the bus tickets at the stations? Wouldn't like to do that.
We're making a 12 day roundtrip in Hungary on July 29th - August 9th. We've got our flights to and from Budapest, so we need to start and finish there. We want to have a few days for the capital and the rest of the days we'd go aroung with bus and train.
We'd like to see different towns and areas but not spend all of our days on the road. The tricky part is, how to plan the itinerary, considering that we need to start and finish in Budapest...
Any suggestions, which places should we try to include?
Are there any public buses from Budapest airport going directly to oher towns? I have only found private transportation and that's expensive.
We are planning to make some sort of a roundtrip in Hungary and it would be very convenient to get to / from the airport directly to / from some other town besides Budapest. I was thinking Eger, Szeged, Pecs or Sopron to start with.
The airport website isn't too helpfull...
My wife and I are planning a trip to Hungary this summer. We will spend two weeks there. We will visit Budapest first and then we'll go to lake Balaton, We can spend about five more days in the country, but we are not sure about where to go. Any suggestions?
Im seeking advice in how to emigrate to Hungary. My girlfriend is currently living in Budapest and i wish to return to live, I am an australian citizen.
SO much mixed information out there.... I am thinking to start a business or even just register one for now (KFT) teaching English. Is this possible? DO i have to be accredited?
Business is not essential at this point but basically could anyone tell me the best way to go about acquiring a long term renewable visa for Hungary?
MANY thanks in advance.
My friend, a Chinese citizen plans to visit me in Budapest soon. She applied for a "tourist category" Schengen visa. The thing is in her visa application she wrote down Hungary as her only destination for 14 days, but in fact she planed to stay in Budapest for only 3 days, after that she is going to other EU countries for the rest of the days.
The visa was issued to her based on her hotel booking in BP for the entire 14 days, but now she wants to cancel that and stay at my place for 3 nights and 2 days when she is in BP. I am Chinese as well, staying here on a resident permit "tartózkodási engedély".
My friend wants me to issue a letter so she can show to the immigration stating that I will provide accommodation to her for the entire 14 days, but I am not sure that won't cause any problem both for her and for my side. Without out my letter and her hotel booking canceled, will ... more »
Just wanted to give travelers a tip if you are planning to travel to Esztergom in the near future. I had purchased my train tickets online a couple of months ago when still in the US and savoring the train ride to the Danube Bend. The trip according to the webpage would take about 50 minutes.
A couple of days ago I went to the Nyugati train station and printed all my tickets (bought several) in preparation for my trip. This morning I made it to the station with plenty of time and was looking at the schedule board and noticed that my 8:20 am departure was not listed. I went to the Information office where they told me "NO TRAINS TO ESZTERGOM YOU MUST TAKE BUS FROM ARPAD STATION" . This is something I did not want to hear with 30 minutes to spare no other alternatives or warnings during the purchasing process. The reason for this is that the rail line is undergoing serious recons... more »
Looking for a vaccine clinic in Budapest, specifically one that would have the Tickborne Encephalitis vaccine. Thanks for any help you can provide.
I am going with a friend of mine on 5th April in the afternoon from Budapest to Novi Sad and there are two places available in his car for ride share. We may stop in Szeged for someone to get in/out.
Let me know, if you would be interested: email@example.com.
We are a group on five 50-somethings - 4 girls and 1 guy - looking to catch the overnight train from Budapest to Prague in June.
The MAV website wants details for male and females... Is it possible to book 1x2 females and 1x3 mixed sex cabins (or vice versa)? And if so, how do you make sure you succeed with this arrangement online? Is going to the station the day before safer? (And would we all have to attend?) To compound the dilemma, 1 male and 1 female already have Eurail passes.
The timetable also mentions a stop at "Pardubice" for 2 hours - are we ousted at 4am or parked snug and warm somewhere, being uncoupled and rehitched?
Can you sense my angst?! Thanks for your help!
I'll be in Budapest for 5 days in April and wonder if there's any cheap data plan for mobiles? I don't need any calls, just want the data to my mobile.
Hi, I've been going to Budapest for years but have never seen the flea market as buzzing as in the middle of winter. Tons of people stand on the frozen ground all morning and some of the afternoon to sell their stuff. I bought a bunch of communist-era IDs and a couple of passports for a few dollars. I think it's a fun place to go. Some people like Ecseri flea market, and I haven't been there in a few years, but I have never found it very interesting. Has anyone else been there? Are there any new flea markets around town?
Some more Budapest stuff if you are interested:
Does anyone know if any budget airlines fly between Budapest (Hungary) and Zurich (Switzerland)? Or is there a speedy coach service linking the two cities: We only have 24 hours to get from one to the other.
I will be traveling from Budapest to Prague in late May, 2013, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to the best way to get from BUD to PRA? I would like to take the train, however the tickets online are very expensive. Would it be better for me to book my ticket once I am in Hungary? Is the train travel along a scenic route? Is the bus a good option? Also I will be traveling in Budapest by myself, so any suggestions on things to see/do as a young 22 year old female would be much appreciated!
