The City

Budapest is the capital and most populous city of Hungary and one of the largest cities in the European Union.Budapest’s location is a prime site for habitation because of its geography, and there is ample evidence of human settlement on the Danube’s western side from Neolithic times onward. Divided in two by the Danube, the city is made up of Buda on one side: with Ottoman-era thermal baths at the foot of the spectacular Gellért Hill, the royal palace and Matthias Church, it radiates calm and peace. One the other side lies Pest, vibrant and lively, with its slew of museums rich in cultural and historical treasures, extraordinary Secessionist architecture, its majestic Parliament building considered as one of the most magnificent in the world, Saint Stephen’s Basilica surrounded by pedestrian streets, and its entirely renovated Jewish Quarter and Palace District. 

Besides its historical value, Budapest has a highly developed cultural scene with its world-class festivals, theatres, museums, concert halls and sporting events. For relaxing and enjoying nature, Margaret Island is the city’s “green heart” (considered by many to be one of Europe’s best city parks) - the perfect place to enjoy a stroll, various sports, swimming in outdoor pools or soaking in thermal baths and spas. As for foodies, the celebrated creations of Hungarian cuisine are a definite must!

Budapest Airport Transfer

As in all major cities, use caution and avoid taking a ride with strangers offering transfers to the city. Use either the shared shuttle (Airport Minibus) or the officially appointed cab company to service the airport (Főtaxi). There are also many private companies offering pre-booked limousines.

Airport Minibus
Airport Minibus offers a shared ride to any address in the city for a flat fee. Discounted roundtrip tickets are also available. Advance booking is available online or over the phone; however it's not necessary, as they have a booth inside each terminal on the arrivals level. After purchasing a ticket, your name will be called when the driver arrives. Booking a transfer to the airport generally requires a 24-hour advance notice. We at visitBudapest.travel have been using this service for many years and they have always been reliable. A one-way trip to the city center is HUF 3,900 per person and a return trip is HUF 6,900.
