    Explore Pecs on foot

    by HORSCHECK Updated May 18, 2014

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although Pecs with its 160.000 inhabitants is the 5th largest city in Hungary, it is still best explored on foot.

    Most of the main sights are located within the compact historic city centre, where many small streets are pedestrianised and therefore not accessible to cars anyway.

    Other sights like the Havi Hill Chapel or the Tettye Ruins invite for a nice stroll with interesting insights into local life outside of the city centre.

    Most sights are very well signposted so that you can't get lost on your explorations.

    To Pecs by train

    by HORSCHECK Written May 17, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I arrived in Pecs by train from Budapest Keleti. The 228 km trip with an IC train took just less than 3 hours. I bought my single ticket at the train station in Budapest and it cost 4605 HUF (September 2013). Online-tickets seem to be slightly cheaper.

    The route between Budapest and Pecs is served at least hourly, but leave from different train stations in Budapest. Depending on the type of train, travel times and fares vary.

    Other towns which can be reached by regional trains from Pecs include Villany, Mohacs and Pusztaszabolcs. Unfortunately, there isn't any train connection to Osijek in Croatia anymore.

    Pecs' train station is located about 2 km south of the central square Szechenyi ter.

    To Pecs by bus

    by HORSCHECK Written May 16, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I left Pecs by bus to Mohacs and then went further on via Udvar and Beli Manastir to Osijek in Croatia. The 45 km route between Pecs and Mohacs is served several times a day and in September 2013 a single ticket cost 840 HUF.

    Other towns which can be reached by bus from Pecs include Szeged (3:10 h) and Budapest (4:10 h). The main bus operator is Pannon Volan.

    Pecs' bus station can be found about 1 km south of the central square Szechenyi ter, just behind the big Arkad shopping centre.

    Car rental in Pécs - not so easy

    by Strombus Written May 27, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Car rental is not a lively branch of the service industry in Pécs. Budget is the only multinational company that has a representative here, sitting in a small office. Last year my relatives rented from them and the service was good. I would have more trust renting from them than from some no-name local company that occasionally rents a car or two. Especially if going abroad with the car. Make sure you let them know that you want to take the car out of Hungary!

    You have to be careful to show up during their opening hours, which is not the usual all day. They are closed on Sunday, open from 8 am to 12 pm on Saturday and 7.30 am to 4.30 pm on weekdays.

    There is only one regular flight in Pécs currently, to Korfu and back. However, the airport is an aerial border crossing. The only possibility is for other destination, to catch a charter flight.
    Pécs is about 9 kilometres far from the airport.

    Use public transportation if you can!

    by janika Written Nov 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a general warning that applies to most of Hungary, but especially in Budapest. In Hungary it is very easy to be ripped off by (private) cab drivers. Be very vigilant and do not seat into the car until you are sure what the cost will be at your destination.
    Pecs taxis are not as bad as the ones in Budapest, but still be alert and use public transportation if possible. In Budapest I recommend Zona Taxi and in Pecs I recommend Volan Taxi as a choice of taxi, when no public transport is available.

  • Ender Hungary from Croatia.

    by popi3 Updated Jul 20, 2007

    We wanted to reach Pecs from Croatia. In Croatia there aren’t so good road signs so we didn’t found the road to Barcs and enter Hungary from Gola. Well this was not so bad because we travelled via many villages of Hungary and Croatia and the roads is not so bad but for a long time you have the sense that you are lost. Anyway the scenery around you is worth the trouble and there is literally no traffic.

    Use Intercity

    by pecsihornet Updated Feb 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Easiest you can reach Pécs by train from Budapest. But choose Intercity as it much faster than other trains. It takes 3 hours. You can check the timetable here: www.elvira.hu
    In Pécs you can travel by bus- Timetable is here:http://www.pkrt.hu/index2.php The bus ticket is cheaper at the newsagents than on the buses.
    If you want to take a taxi, choose Volán or Euro Taxi, otherwise you can pay a fortune for the journey.

    City bus

    by cobrioc Updated Aug 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bus# 33 from in front of the Konsum shopping center to the last stop.

    To get to the flea market, a special bus (marked "Vásár") departs the Konsum shopping center in the center of downtown Pécs regularly. You need two standard city bus tickets for this bus, which are available for 95 Ft (35¢) each at newsstands and kiosks or for 115 Ft (40¢) apiece from the bus driver. You can also take the no. 3 bus from the Konsum (only one ticket required), but you'll have to walk some distance from the stop to the entrance of the flea market.

    Trains depart daily from Budapest's Déli Station; five of these are Intercity trains. The fare is 1,722 Ft ($6.20). On an Intercity train the journey takes about 2 1/2 hours, and you are required to pay an additional 360 Ft ($1.30) for a seat reservation. On a fast train the trip is more like 3 hours, but you don't need a reservation.

    If you are driving from Budapest, take the M6 south for approximately 3 hours.

    Getting here

    by croisbeauty Updated Dec 14, 2002

    When traveling to Hungary I never use public transportation, therefore my tip is reffered to driving car.
    The town of Pecs is off the main route A7, however the distances within Hungary are relativly short, and all places are reachable from Budapest in less than four hours. The motorways (marked M) are in good conditions, respect spead limits and don't drink alcohol when driving.

    Train from Siofok

    by kaloz Written Nov 27, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We travelled in Hungary by rail between cities. We took a train from Siofok on the southern shore of Lake Balaton to Pecs. Buy you rail pass before you get to Hungary! The deal we got was not available to the locals. Our pass was for Hungary only and was good for 14 travel days in a month. It was very inexpensive. But, the porters had never seen this type of pass and had to consult with a supervisor each time we rode.

    From Budapest simply get on the 'InterCity' at 'Déli' railway station. It is fast and reliable.
    The public transportation is quite good, but the cab is pretty cheap here too. (use Volán taxi)
    And man, they are faaast :)
    Once we had to admit we can't finish the phone call and get down from the second floor before the cabbie arrived. :)

    by Bercsi Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Budapest you should take the Intercity train from Déli Pályaudvar (Southern Train Station on the Buda side). ...here's the timetable (in English) Make sure to buy both a ticket for the trip and a seat reservation. The trip takes about 2h 40 min, there is usually a restaurant on the train, but check that out before you leave!
    Timetable for the bus traffic in Pécs. Unfortunately it's only available in Hungarian. 'Éjszakai járatok' means night buses.
