Useful Tips

 If you want to travel fastest from one railway station to another, take the metro. Déli pályaudvar (pu) i.e. Déli railway station and Keleti pu are connected by the red metro line, with Déli pu at one terminus. Nyugati pu is situated on the blue line. You can change from the blue line to the red one at Deák tér. At Déli pu there is an on-line, English-speaking touchscreen computer with maps that will help you orientate. Of course, you can ask for help at the „Információ" at the railway stations. (

 You have to buy tickets in advance if you want to use public transport in Budapest. They cost 100 Ft each and can be bought at the railway stations. Don’t forget to punch them at the metro stations or on the bus.

 If I were you, I wouldn’t take a taxi from the airport to the city centre. Taxi drivers with a car without a company label may overcharge foreigners. :-( You’d better take the Minibus, which costs 1200 Ft per person.

 … other information:

You’ll be able to travel around the city free of charge if you have your CEOI badge. On the other hand, everything is within a walking distance in Zalaegerszegen. :-)

 You’d better bring your swimming costume because we’ll be going to Lake Balaton, the biggest lake in Central Europe. There you’ll be able to hire a boat or do other water sports. If you feel like eating or drinking something, you’ll have vouchers for 1500 Ft, which you’ll get at the registration.

 Of course, when you have free time, you’ll be able to do sports (swimming, ping-pong, tennis, football, body building, horse riding etc) in Zalaegerszeg as well. Ask for information and equipment at the school.
