    • statue identification

      Budapest Aug 14, 2015 at 8:32 AM

      Does  anyone  recognize  this  statue?  I  took  the  picture  in  Budapest  in  a  hurry  and  I  can't  even  remember  for  sure  where ,  but  it  could've  been  near  Gundel.  I  don't  know  what  it  is  a  statue (the  name)  of  or  if  the  place  it  is  located  by  gives  it  some  type  of  significance.  Maybe  a  games  store.  Anyone  know  where  it  is  or  any  information?

      Does anybody know anything about a series of murals at the top of Castle Hill? They look very old and have a painted look to them: one has small marching soldiers on it, another a crown. I can't seem to find any information about them.

      We are arriving by train and need to exchange some money. We do not use ATMs. I will exchange some cash at the station assuming there is an exchange office there as I need some local cash for a cab to the hotel. We are staying at the Marriott near the Danube. Is there a good exchange office near our hotel?

      Hungary Day Trip from Budapest- Eger OR Pecs OR Lake Balaton OR Danube Bend Towns

      Budapest Aug 3, 2015 at 2:38 AM

      I have planned to visit Budapest for a few days this summer. I have kept 2 full days for the Budapest city explore (Castle district, Pest area, Take a hot bath , Do some shopping etc.) and want to do day trips from Budapest (for this day trips again I have 4 full days). I can either go to the Danube Bend and visit 2 of the 3 small towns (Esztergom, Visegrad, and Szentendre) and back to Budapest. OR I could take a trip to the town of Eger OR to the town of Pecs and back to Budapest. OR I could take a day trip to Lake Balaton and back to Budapest.
      Please give me your valuable suggestions on which side trip do you prefer and why? If you chose the Danube Bend towns which two towns would you recommend?

      Thanks in advance :) 

      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?

      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

      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.
