train to bratislava

by cucaron

Hi VTrs
I want to travel fron budapest to bratislava in the morning, and have some questions:
1. does the trains depart from nugati or keleti station.
2. If depart from keleti is possible to buy tickets the day before at nugati
3. There is a web site in english to see the train schedule.
4. As I read is cheaper to buy a round trip instead one way, is that true
5. either nugati or keleti have an english spoken boot to buy the tickets

thanks
francisco

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

will give you times and details in English for almost all European trains.

The Hungarian railway website in English is here:

http://www.mav.hu/english/index.php

and will give you some fare information as well as train times and details.

Trains to Bratislava mainly leave from Keleti station, although there are a few from Nyugati.

Return fare is 16 euro (although you have to pay in Hungarian Forints). I have no idea whether a return fare is cheaper than a one-way fare.

I do not think you need to be concerned about English being spoken. Budapest is a popular tourist destination and well-used to visitors. If you are worried, just write Bratislava on a piece of paper ...or get your hotel/hostel to write the details of the ticket you want. But I do not think you will have a problem.

1)Keleti (to leics - from Nyugati departs local trains to Sturovo)
2)Yes, there are international counter at Nyugati station as well, but it's open something like 8am-7pm or something like this
3)already answered
4)One way 12 euro, r/t 16 - calculate ;)

Re: train to bratislava

I mentioned Nyugati only because the MAV site listed the departure.

Re: train to bratislava

1. Keleti only. The Nyugati option is listed only in case you'd miss the train in Keleti and have the option of catching that train by a local train in Vac.
2. You can buy your ticket at any station selling international tickets. Nyugati, Keleti, Deli, Kelenfold are all included in that among other stations.
3. See above.
4. That's true. There's a 60% roundtrip discount.
5. Not neccessarily. Just have that piece of paper with script BRATISLAVA and two opposite-pointing arrows under one another to show you need a roundtrip ticket. Show date and the number of tickets required (2 pcs = 2x or 2 db -meaning pieces in Hungarian).

Travel Tips for Budapest

Constructions

by Gili_S

One of the signs of economical growth is many construction sites in progress, that was my impression in Budapest, the potential is there and it is nice to see the city developing, maybe the process is slow, but still, it is to the right direction.

General meeting place - Nyugati clock

by MedioLatino

One of the most popular meeting places of the people in Budapest is the so called "Nyugati clock".

People come and go all the time at that spot, just spend a good half an hour there and you will see lovers on a date, friends before a party, someone giving back a book to a schoolmate, mother waiting for his son before shopping...

So don't worry if someone says to you, let's meet at the Nyugati station at the clock, just go there look for the turning lights showing the time or the temperature (see picture!) and enjoy waiting while watching people go by! :)

ps: the place is on Nyugati square, at the Nyugati metro/railway/tram/bus station just in face of the Nyugati railways station's building.

Cycling in Budapest

by KamaO

The bicycle is very popular in Budapest: about 25000 people try cycling in the heavy traffic, which is difficult but also interesting. There are few cycle paths, which do not form separate network. Bookshops sell special maps for cyclists. Should you still venture on your bike, you are advised to ride in the large parks: the Margaret Island, the City Park or the Nepliget.

Old houses in the Center. The...

by madbal

Old houses in the Center. The most building were build 100 years ago in the districts V, VI, VII, VIII, IX. Each one is an architectural masterpiece. So don't be tired to take a look at these houses from the out and the INSIDE! Go, and see stairways, doorways of the small streets. Most of these building haven't got the best condition, but try to see, how beautiful they once were. Recommanded to do it in the daylight, otherwise will be received with suspicion.
Best streets: Andrássy street, Teréz körút, Erzsébet körút (and the streets around)
