Local information

Hungary, located in Central Europe, is undoubtedly one of the world’s favourite tourist destinations. The Hungarian culture, music, art, architecture, spas, unique flora and fauna, national parks, cuisine and wine attract millions of visitors annually. Find more information about Hungary here.

With its more than a thousand-year history, Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and one of the youngest capitals: Pest, Buda, and Óbuda merged in 1873, establishing the city we love and know now. The city offers an unparalleled combination of beautiful natural settings, rich historical and cultural heritage, fine cuisine, numerous sports, cultural and academic activities and events.

Pest, the Eastern part, is a bustling, vibrant city with rich museums, theatres, cafés and restaurants. Pest’s iconic buildings and areas include the neo-Gothic Parliament, housing the Hungarian Crown Jewels, and the Saint Stephen’s Basilica with the Holy Right Hand of King Saint Stephen, the founder of Hungary, on display, and the inspiring Jewish quarter.

Buda is more tranquil and relaxing, with much greenery and historic thermal baths; the Castle District, with charming streets, the Royal Palace and the Matthias Church, should not be missed by any visitor.

Budapest is a meeting place of East and West, a safe metropolis that offers a wealth of experiences for visitors.


Public transportation in Budapest is provided by the Centre for Budapest Transport (BKK), one of the largest transportation authorities in Europe. BKK operates 4 metro lines – including the historic Line 1, the oldest underground railway in continental Europe –, 5 suburban railway lines, 35 tram lines, 14 trolleybus lines, 246 bus lines (including 41 night routes), 3 boat services, and smart vehicle sharing networks providing cars, bicycles and electric scooters.

Taxi: Taxis in Budapest are marked with the word „Taxi”, often accompanied by a company name/logo such as „City Taxi”. All taxi vehicles must have a yellow registration plate, as opposed to the white background on regular car plates. All taximeters are equipped with a receipt-printing function, displaying the fares charged and the identification of the driver.


The climate of Budapest is continental. In mid-September there is usually a nice weather with a maximum temperature of 15-25°C, and during the night a minimum temperature ranging between 5-15°C. Nevertheless, some rainy days can be expected.
