Travel Tips for Transportation in Central Hungary

Budapest, Central Hungary, Hungary
A most wonderful city, the Pearl of the Danube! Buda and Pest, situated on the two banks, are great, one being mountainous with castles and old mansions, and the other being low with parks, restaurants and nightlife. It is a true spa-city, one of the main attractions being the thermal baths. Make sure you visit the Szecsenyi Baths: old beautiful building (newly renovated), healing water with lots of minerals and micro-elements and fountains/waves/jakuzzi for fun! Can be visited around the year as the water is warm/hot, so you won't freeze even in winter in the open-air pools. Bliss!
Gellert Baths (in Gellert hotel): probably the most expensive baths located in a fancy hotel on Buda side with a pool on the roof. It has separate sections for men and women for those who consider it fun :)
Underground: the yellow line ("Foldalatti") is over 100 y.o. and is the oldest on the continent! It is 11 stops long and runs through the centre of the city on Pest side. There are 2 more longer lines (looking exactly like trains in Moscow!), and a 4th is being constructed now.
Hungarian cuisine is famous for gulyas, paprika and halaszle (fish soup), which I recommend trying in small family-owned restaurants you will find all over the place.
And after a dinner, take a walk in the night city: take Szecsenyi Chain Bridge to cross the Danube from Pest to Buda or back And as you are walking at night, you can see many lights glittering in the sky - they are in Buda hills calling you up to enjoy the panorama of the night city. Go up the Gellert hill and enjoy the purple -pink colors of the city when it is waking up in the morning...

I spent 3 years there and keep coming back. I love the city and hope you will enjoy it, too.

Budapest is wonderful place. If you are looking for peaceful spots - got to Margaret's Sziget (read: Siget = Island), worth seeing is Japanese and Rose Garden The most famous Street in Budapest is Vaci Utca - you can find there masterpieces of human originality and individuality, in the evenings - the street is bursting with life - be careful of being invited to clubs by their doormen - looking at least devilishly ;) You absolutely must see this carnival of people's variety (DragQueens, Lesbians, Gays, street actors) If you are looking for rest - go to Szechenyi Furdo (Baths)!! Amazing hot water pools in 19th century yard... magnificient!! Budapest, however, in my opinion is very dirty and unpleasant at Underground Stations - but you cannot miss going the oldest in Europe Yellow Line Metro!

When you arrive at Budapest airport and start looking for a means to get into the city, most people will recommand you the minibus services that go by the va rious hotels and hostels. Though it is relatively easy to get there by bus and metro too. It's ridiculously cheap and doesn't e ven take al that much longer. From either terminalk 1 or 2 there runs a bus nr 200 to the Köbánya-Kispest metro terminal. From there you can get just about anywhere within minutes. Tickets can be bought at various kiosks and vending machines at the bus stop.

Budapest is really a nice city. The marketplace downtown close to the Danube is excellent and the view of the city from the statue of Freedom overlooking both Buda and Pest is wonderful
