Pécs is about 230 km from Budapest.

How to reach Pécs if you arrive...

... by plane at Budapest Ferihegy airport (BUD)
... or by train

There are several direct Intercity and express trains from Budapest-Keleti and Budapest-Déli railway stations to Pécs (it costs about 15-20 EUR). Both railway stations are in the center of Budapest. Details about the connection to the airport can be found here. Students with "EURODIM 2010" sign will help the participants at the railway station of Pécs to reach their hotels on 11th July 2010. Timetables from Budapest to Pécs are available here: 11th and 12th July 2010.

A shuttlebus service from Budapest Ferihegy to Pécs is also available (it costs about 25-35 EUR/person). Online reservation is recommended in advance.

The Organizing Committee arranged 2 special bus transports from Budapest airport Terminal 2A to the recommended hotels in Pécs. The departure times of the buses are 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm on Sunday, 11 July 2010. Those arriving to Terminal 1 have to use the public bus number 200E to Terminal 2 which may take up to 30 minutes (be careful not to take the same number to the metro station, both stops are in front of the terminal building).
Our colleagues, István Bányász and Krisztián Lengyel with a „EURODIM 2010” sign will be waiting for you at the arrival level of Terminal 2A from 2:00 pm. Please, contact them at least half an hour before the departure time of the buses.

For those who have not reserved their seats on the buses in advance a very limited number of seats will only be available on a first come first served basis. Please be aware that later on Sunday evening no public transport is available between Budapest and Pécs with the possible exception of a personally ordered shuttle bus (see above). If you need further help you can call us:

  • István Bányász (for the bus departing at 3 pm) or
  • Krisztián Lengyel (for the bus departing at 7:30 pm)

The special bus transport from Pécs to Budapest after the conference at about 6:00 am, 17 July 2010 is under organization.

... by car

Starting from Budapest the easiest way to reach Pécs is on highway M6-M60 (maps and navigation systems may not show this motorway since it has been opened only this spring). Those who come from the south should take e.g. the Zagreb-Budapest highway and take route 67 to the south at Balatonlelle (310 km). The distance between Zagreb and Pécs may be shorter if one takes lower class roads (about 220 km).

... by bike

It is recommended only for the strongests

Please, do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further help in the organization of your trip.
