As the title suggests, I want to know if its possible to convert Romanian money into hungarian currency in money exchange in Budapest. Its Eastern europe and thus thought I should double check....
Can you comment on the latest on the floods in budapest?
Are trains / buses running into central city. Im coming from the border of romania and would like to know if there are any delays?
Hi, my boyfriend and I have planned an inter-railing trip around Europe this August. We've planned to get the night train from Budapest to Split. We've planned to leave on Friday 9th August from Budapest, which fits in with the Friday night train day! I've looked all over forums and the Internet to book this night train and no I have to use the MAV website, however it's now 60 days until the date we want to leave and the website stills tells me there's 'no offers'. I'm a bit confused because everybody has said the tickets will go on sale 60 days before the departure date! Has anyone else managed to book the night train for this year or know when the tickets will be on sale? Your help would be much appreciated!
Also, any ideas on things to do in Budapest are welcomed! We like history and exploring!
Thanks x x
Can anyone recommend any good horse riding tours in Hungary. Looking only for 2-4 days, don't really care if the accommodation is lodges or camping. Looking for ones that might be on the cheaper side!
I am planning a trip to Budapest next week and was hoping if anyone could give information regarding flood situation in Budapest and Vienna
Hey guys, I am planning a 5 night trip to Budapest in August for my friend and I. I am wondering how much does everyone think would be a good budget for the 2 of us? Accommodation wise, transport, food etc.
We recently got back from Krakow which was relatively easy to organise and plan...Budapest looks a bit more complicated.
Also, any suggestions on sights to see, places to eat and accommodation would be great...all experiences will be appreciated.
is it possible to book these trains over the internet, or do i need to buy them at the trainstation ?
I am planning to return to Blatonfured in around a month or so. On my first visit there, I had pleasantly memorable experiences at a particular hotel and restaurant. I have the current version of Lonely Planet's Eastern Europe, but am pretty sure that neither the hotel nor restaurant are any of those listed for Blatonfured in this edition.
I think that both the hotel and restaurant were listed in the 8th edition of Lonely Planet's Central Europe (the one with the horse statue on the cover) and the Eastern Europe guide of roughly the same period (as Hungary is one of the countries placed in both regional guides.)
The hotel was a couple of streets back from the lake and to the east of the ferry pier, probably just outside the boundaries of the map of Blatonfured in the current Eastern Europe guide (page 421). In the earlier regional guides, I seem to remember it stati... more »
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 »
