    • Budapest to Lviv in August 2014: Best ways to travel: Train or Drive?

      Budapest Jul 9, 2014 at 7:59 AM

      We are 2 American couples traveling through Central Europe and planning to from Budapest to Lviv, Ukraine in August 2014.

      With the unrest in Ukraine I am a bit worried about travel but we have set our minds to go anyway and now looking for a good way to get there.

      What is the preferable way to travel?

      Would the Budapest-Lviv train be the only option? I know it is long trip - 15 hrs!

      If so, which train# is it or maybe there is a name? Is there a special word for a sleeping coach? Are there are any coaches for 2 people in one?

      The website for Hungarian railroads is difficult to understand to say the least.

      Or would it be possible to hire a driver and rent a minivan in Budapest (or Lviv) to have someone drive us to Lviv?

      Any help is appreciated!

      First tim ein Hungary, looking for trip planning suggestions

      by Shade_Jon Online Now May 1, 2008 at 1:46 AM

      We're four adults flying in from Tel Aviv, although we may fly in through a connecting city. We have a place near Balaton (time share) for a week starting Sept 6 and are looking for suggestions on how to plan the trip.

      I thought of the following: a weekend in Budapest, drive out to Balaton, hang out for five days, next weekend in Vienna. That means flying in to Budapest, renting a car for a week with a different location drop off, flying out from Vienna, and two weekends B&Bs or hotels.

      I fear this may be too expensive, so I'm willing to compromise: skip Vienna or do a day trip to see it. But I'm not sure you can "see" even part of Vienna in one day, not to mention drive both ways in one day.

      Does it make sense to try to fly in to the Balaton through some city in Europe and skip Budapest and Vienna? Or fly directly to Budapest and drive to Balaton and then back?

    • TICKS

      by Ladymarian1 Online Now Jan 23, 2008 at 1:07 PM

      Hi

      We're taking our small caravan and staying on the edge of Lake Balaton in August Husband is an insulin diabetic + asthma - seems to be a lot of confusion over whether we need jabs for this tickborne encapahalitis - we're only staying 4 nights and will be sight seeing - OK the odd pampering for me at a spa! Can anyone please end the utter confusion over these blasted ticks - and is there anywhere that I can purchase a tick remover in the UK - only seems to be pretty crap ones on ebay.

      All info greatly received. Thanks

    • Balaton public transport

      by petite_emma Online Now Jan 11, 2008 at 5:53 AM

      I'm thinking of going to the Balaton Sound festival in July, which is in Zamárdi, on the south shore of Lake Balaton.
      A friend's mum lives near the airport in Sármellék, to the west of the lake, I and was wondering how difficult it would be to travel from there to the festival each day.
      Are there local bus or train services and, if so, will they run late at night?
      Roughly how much would a taxi/mini bus be?
      I know I could camp but being under canvas in a possible 100 degree heat wouldn't be too fun and I also don't fancy my chances with the elephant-sized mosquitoes.

      Thanks in advance for any replies

    • Balaton Airport to Novi Sad, Serbia??

      by exitfestival Online Now Apr 4, 2007 at 1:29 PM

      Hello,

      Just wondering if anyone can help at all. We have booked flights to Balaton airport in July, but need to somehow make our way over to Novi Sad in Serbia for the Exit Festival. We have found a company that does bus transfers for £50 return but this seems a little steep. Besides, they need money upfront, which we aren't to keen to give them so early on!

      Thanks very much

      Hi,
      We are planning a trip to Hungary and Croatia in a couple of weeks. We won't have much time in Hungary so I'm trying to plan pretty specifically. I'm looking for a good place for a decently price wine tasting on the northwest end of Balaton, preferably somewhere near Szigliget. It would need to be something on Tuesday night, August 9th.
      Thanks for any ideas you have.
