TRANSPORTATION

From most European countries, the easiest way of reaching Hungary is by plane. There are flights from all over the world to Budapest, the capital of Hungary. It is also possible to travel to Hungary by international train services - this option is favoured by students coming from neighbouring countries.

The most convenient way of travelling is taking a shuttle which rides directly to Pécs. It costs approximately 9000 HUF (30 EUR). If you contact your CP before your arrival, we'd gladly help you to book you a shuttle to Pécs.

How to reach the city centre from the airport? http://www.bud.hu/english/passengers/access_and_parking/by_public_transportation

Another option for travelling from Budapest to Pécs is the train. Ask the taxi or take a bus to Keleti Pályaudvar (Eastern Railway Station). From there you can travel to Pécs by an Intercity train. The full fare 2nd class ticket with seat reservation will cost about 4500 HUF (15 EUR).

Although Pécs is considered to be a big city in Hungary, all the landmarks, social places and hospitals can be reached by feet. We have a good public transport system. One single ticket is 300 HUF (1 EUR).
