From the Budapest Tourist Office:

Look at the end of the first section.

Re: Transport for EU residents over 65

Yes, travelling on all means of public transportation within Hungary is free for citizens of member states of the European Union and the European Economic Area. This applies to local transportation and interurban transportation as well.

In city transportation, a valid photo ID showing your date of birth is enough (a personal ID or a passport is preferable, but a driver's licence or a social security card should be fine too).

In interurban transportation (which means crossing the city, town or village limits) you will need a free registration ticket that can usually be obtained at station ticket offices or if there is no such an office available, from the train conductor or the bus driver.

So, you DON'T need a registration ticket:
- within Budapest for any BKV city transportation service (buses numbered 5-296, all trams, trolleys, metros, HEV trains, cogwheel railway, night buses )
- on BKV services crossing the city limits (a number of bus routes numbered 13-218, night buses and HEV suburban trains)
- ferries

but you DO need a registration ticket:
- on all MAV-Start (national rail) trains, even within Budapest
- on all suburban buses (numbered 300-899), even within Budapest
- on all distance coach services

The following services are not considered to be the part of the public transporation network, so the 65< free travel does not apply to them:
- the Castle funicular
- chairlifts (incl. Janos-hegy), ski-lifts
- sightseeing buses (eg. on Margharet Island), trains, trams and ships
- line ships.

I hope my post was more helpful than confusing :)

Travel Tips for Budapest

to and from the airport

by periquito

many tips re: hustling with taxi drivers.

My tip:
Take the airport taxi when you arrive - it is more easy than ensuring you found a non-mafia taxi. Just book one way (2100 huf per person).

Ask your hotel to book taxi to go back to the airport. Ask them to use the company that charges 3500 huf. I think the phone number is 7777777.

TOP TIP

Following are the basic hungarian sentence

Jó napot! Hello / Good-day!

Szia! Hi! hello & goodbye)
Köszönöm! Thank you
Elnézést! Excuse me!

(If you want to attract someone's attention.)
Bocsánat! Sorry!
Viszontlátásra! Goodbye!

The Saint Michael church on Váci street

by 1courage

This church was built by the dominicans. They initiated the edification of the church and the chloster in 1700 wich lasted for 1716, but the original church was destroyed by a fire. In the second fase (1720-1730) the monks constructed the nave, while in the third (1745-1765 ) they finished building the choir, the westry, the tower and the facades. The church was damaged by different infaust events: in 1809 the tower and the rooftop were detroyed in a fire and had to be rebuilt, while in 1838 the Danube mad some damages but soon it was repaired.
The external part of the church was refurbished recently, but the internal renovations...-->

Public transportation is...

by matza

Public transportation is extensive, reliable and cheap.
Fares cannot be paid on board and there are fines for traveling without a validated ticket. Tickets are valid for one ride only. A new ticket must be used every time you change lines. Tickets can be cancelled in meters (red punch slots) on board (tram, bus) or at (metro) station entrances (orange boxes). Tickets can be purchased at metro stations, hotels, newsstands and tobacco shops.

Instead of single tickets you may consider buying a carnet of 10 tickets or a pass (for 1/7/14 days or for a month), or a Budapest card. These are available at the metro stations or at end stations of public transport.

Budapest Card
The Budapest Card allows you to travel free of charge on public transport, free entry in 55 museums, city sightseeing programmes for half the price, discount price tickets for cultural and folklore programmes. There are further discounts offered by many other places, from baths to shops, from restaurants to airport minibus service, car rental services, sports facilities and pleasure flights. You will find full details of all these opportunities in the 100-page, four-language (English, German, Italian and Hungarian) information guide which comes with the Card.
For adults the Budapest Card costs HUF 3,400 for 2 days and HUF 4,000 for 3 days. The card is valid for an adult plus a child under 14 years of age.
Cards are available in tourist information offices, hotels and at major underground ticket offices.

Angelika

by Djinn76

This seems to be quite common to go outside to have some piece of cake, pies,... In Pest, the place to be is the famous Gerbaud, very well known and full of tourists.
Did you know there was a much less touristy alternative in Buda? This is called Angelika!
However, once again, be careful about what you order: since I pretty much like any of this kind of stuff, I simply picked up something more or less randomly...
At the end, I received this terrific plate full of delicious cake and cream! I managed to finish it but my stomach had to do a couple of extra hours !!
