Get to Budapest and we will organize the rest.

For overseas guests, there aren’t many direct flights into Budapest so you will most likely have to make a connection somewhere. The best way to do this, especially if you’re traveling around Europe before and after the wedding, is to look for multi-city flights flying into one city and out of another. We suggest to start searching for flights after January for the best prices.

Within Europe, airlines such as EasyJet and Wizzair are your best bet. Use skyscanner to search for prices and then book on the airline’s website directly. Also, make sure you check the luggage restrictions for the European flights.

Note: the wedding event does not include Budapest, so we recommend you visit this beautiful city a few days before or after the wedding.

Straddling the romantic Danube River, with the Buda Hills to the west and the start of the Great Plain to the east, Budapest is the most beautiful city in central Europe.

With parks brimming with attractions, museums filled with treasures, pleasure boats sailing up and down the scenic Danube and Turkish-era thermal baths belching steam, the Hungarian capital is a delight both by day and by night.

Everyone loves Eger, and it’s immediately apparent why: the beautifully preserved baroque architecture gives the town a relaxed, almost Mediterranean, feel; it is the home of the celebrated Egri Bikavér (Eger Bull’s Blood) wine known the world over; and it is flanked by two of the Northern Uplands most inviting ranges.

Lake Balaton, often called the ‘Hungarian Sea’, is the country’s substitute for a coastline, a place where many locals escape Europe’s summer heat. At 78km long, 15km across at its widest point and covering 600 sq km, it’s Europe’s largest body of fresh water and an aqua-playground big enough to cater to most holiday-makers. Continue reading »


Blessed with a mild climate, an illustrious past and a number of fine museums and monuments, Pécs is the jewel of Southern Transdanubia, if not all provincial Hungary. For these reasons and more, many travelers put it second to Budapest on their ‘must-see’ list. Pécs has been selected to be the European Capital of Culture in 2010. Continue reading »


For centuries it has been known as Zlatá Praha or Golden Prague – a glittering jewel of art and architecture nestling snugly at the heart of Europe.

Few cities in the world glide so effortlessly between the present and the past like Vienna. Its splendid historical face is easily recognised: grand imperial palaces and bombastic baroque interiors, museums flanking magnificent squares and, above all, the Hofburg – where the Habsburg rulers lived, loved and married into empires.

Transylvania (known as Erdély in Hungarian) is a traditionally Hungarian region of Romania with beautiful mountain towns, lakes and special hot springs. It’s a place where people still say ‘hi’ to each other on the street in small villages, women wash their rugs at the central well and the cows walk home by themselves at dusk, knowing exactly where to go. The roads are not great and it’s less touristy than most places with some amazing home-cooked food and a bit like stepping back in time into a magical era. You’re probably expecting to read about Dracula, but that takes place in central Romania at the edge of Transylvania. Continue reading »

Car rental guidelines This is a good place for general information and which major international car rentals are available in Hungary. If you are planning to leave the country, be sure you have the right papers to drive the car abroad (though this is more of a concern if you are leaving the EU).


In Hungary every motorway is a toll road, administered by the National Highway Authority (Á.A.K. Zrt.). The roads M0 (that forms a half ring around the city of Budapest), M2 and M15 although are divided multi-lane roads, they are not considered as motorways, and can be used free of charge.

Since the beginning of 2008, the purchase of a motorway sticker is handled electronically (known as an “e-sticker” or e-matrica), thus cannot be put physically on the windshield anymore, it is only registered in a computer system with its validity period. The highway cameras are checking the registered plate number and not the sticker itself. The 4 days, 10 days, monthly and yearly stickers can be used for unlimited trips on every highway, within its validity period.

The highway stickers can be purchased/registered at petrol stations (gas stations) all around the country. The purchase receipts should be kept for at least half a year after the trip.


Budapest has three main subway lines: Red, Yellow, Blue. They meet up at Deák Square in Pest. You will need to buy subway tickets (single, packets or passes) and punch one ticket for each ride – if you switch lines, you will have to punch another ticket. The trams and buses take the same type of tickets.
