If you want to take a trip in comfort and save some money, there is nothing better than using a taxi service from Budapest Airport. Every year, more than 5 million tourists visit Budapest, the Hungarian capital, which straddles the great and historic Danube River. The city was established politically, in 1873, when the two cities of Buda and Pest merged to form one of the most beautiful and majestic cities in Eastern Europe. Architecturally attractive and as eccentric as Vienna and just as cultural, it is the nerve centre of the nation.
Its history dates back to the first century A.D. when the brief Celtic presence was replaced by the Romans. From then on, the simple swamp village became a city with roads, bridges, and the spas for which it is still famous for today. Budapest is able to satisfy any tourist or visitor in terms of art and culture with its many museums and galleries, but also other kinds of entertainment and nightlife, with its trendy clubs, which never seem to sleep.

Distances between Budapest Airport and some points of interest
For those wishing to enjoy the most characteristic sights of the Magyar capital, the main distances and relative travel times are provided between Ferihegy airport and some points of interest.
- Ferihegy airport - Parliament building: to reach the Parliament and cover the 22 km that separate it from the airport, it takes about 38 minutes (without traffic).

- Ferihegy airport - Museum of Fine Arts: the distance between these two locations is about 43 km. The fastest route, the M0 takes about 35 minutes.
The public transport network of the capital is very efficient and includes metro, buses, trams and taxis.
The Budapest metro is the oldest in Europe, and has 4 lines with different colours (yellow, red, blue and green lines). Trains run from 4.30am to 11.00pm.
The tram has as many as 40 lines that cross the historical centre of Budapest from far and wide.
For travelling by bus, there are over 200 lines that run through the entire capital. Despite the wide choice, the disadvantage of traveling by bus is that it is unlikely to take you direct to your destination, with the consequence of having to go on foot some of the way or being forced to use other means of transport.
The funicular is a picturesque alternative, as well as being the best means of transport to reach Buda Castle, in the upper part of the city.
Public taxis in Budapest are quite cheap, but you have to be careful about the risk of being cheated simply because you are a tourist. Public taxis are useful and cheap to move around the city perimeter but much less when moving to or from the airport.
