Most anything of interest in Budapest can be found within 3km of the city centre. Budapest’s public transit system is excellent for navigating this radial sprawl, and using it is ridiculously cheap. An extensive system of metro lines, trams, trolleybuses and buses provides frequent service throughout the city. There are single tickets available for 350 HUF per ticket, or books of 10 tickets for 3000 HUF – but the best option if you’re here for the weekend is the 72 hour tourist pass which costs 4150 HUF for unlimited use of the transit system (BKK).
If you’re moving about in groups of three or more, taxis are a fast and affordable option, especially in the evenings. You can get pretty much anywhere in the city within 10 minutes by taxi (not counting rush hour, of course).When you book with Stag Republic, we’ll provide you with a list of reputable, English-speaking taxi companies that’ll reliably take you where you want to go, and at a discount.
