How to get there?
Hungary – one of the 28 member states of the European Union - is the full member of the Schengen Agreement as of 2007. All those citizens who need a visa to enter may find information at: http://konzuliszolgalat.kormany.hu/en
Travellers may reach Hungary and its capital by various means of transport, namely:
By air: the most important airline hub is Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, receiving flights from numerous destinations. The closest international airports are located in Vienna and in Bratislava, in this case you will either need a transfer flight (because of the relatively short distance, less than 230 km) or international coach/train transfer.
By waterway: you may take advantage of the special location of the FINA World Championships venue and travel along the river Danube by ship. Please consult dedicated websites if you are interested, such as: http://www.mahartpassnave.hu/en/timetable/international-hydrofoil-lines/budapest-vienna-hydrofoil-line/
By road: all major highways and motorways run to the capital, so whatever direction you may come from taking a car, bus etc. you will arrive conveniently, as in our case “all roads lead to Budapest”. Please note that if you rent a car, taking the highway requires purchasing a highway vignette.
