Getting to the conference venues

 

From city centre

In the city centre, at Deák tér or Vörösmarty tér, you can take the M1 underground line (infomally known as the “Yellow Line”). The Institute and Benczúr House are a 5-minute walk from the Bajza utca stop of this underground.

From Budapest Airport Terminal 2.

Public transport: Bus no. 200E – M3 – M1

Take bus no. 200E from outside the airport terminal to the underground station called Kőbánya-Kispest, which is where the bus line terminates (the ride takes about 20 minutes). From here you can take the underground (M3 / “Blue Line”) to Deák tér underground station, where you have to change for metro line 1 (M1 / “Yellow Line”) in the direction “Mexikói út”. Get off at the stop called “Bajza utca”. The Linguistic Institute can be found at 33 Benczúr Street, a five minute walk from the underground station, Benczúr House is at 27 Benczúr Street, only a few meters away.

You can also take an Airport Shuttle from the Airport, which is a fixed-price taxi service, operating minibuses that carry 3-8 passengers together.

Taxis are also available from the taxi stand right outside the arrival hall. Only one taxi company (Főtaxi) is authorized to use the airport cab stands, but you can also call one of the taxi companies listed below. Please be aware that you expose yourself to risk if you use non-regulated taxi service providers soliciting at the terminal buildings. Licensed taxis are usually yellow, and they have an information board on the window proving that they are a licensed Budapest taxi. The price of taxis is regulated at a fixed tariff, so you can choose any of the licensed taxi companies.

City Taxi: +36-1-2-111-111
