Arrival to Hungary

By Air

You will arrive at 2A or 2B terminal of Liszt Ferenc Airport. You are advised to take the Airport-Downtown shuttle (minibus service)  from the airport to Keleti Railway station.

Another possibility is to take the door-to-door shuttle service (e.g. Agora) from the airport to E6 hostel. Reservations need to be made in advance, and can be made on-line.

By Train

You will probably arrive in Budapest at either Keleti or Nyugati Railway Stations (East or West Railway Stations). Both of them are located in the city centre. Trains to Miskolc start from Keleti, so if you arrive at Nyugati, you have to take the underground to get to Keleti (5 stops, changing from the blue line to the red line at Deák tér).

From Budapest to Miskolc

By train

There are InterCity trains running from Keleti railway station to Miskolc in every hour. Travel time: approx. 2 hours, without stopping (or with one stop).

From Miskolc Tiszai Railway Station to the University

By taxi

You will arrive at Tiszai railway station. To take a taxi is the best and easiest way to get to the university.
Travel fare: * HUF 2000  (€7).

By  public transport

Numbered buses run in all directions across the city, and even beyond the city borders. Another means of transport is the tram (No. 1 and 2), running along the East-West axis of the town.
This is the route guide for how you can get from TISZAI railway station to the university:



  • take Tram Nr. 1 or Nr. 2 starting from the station
  • get off the tram at the 3rd stop (name of stop: SZINVAPARK). Here you have to  change to the bus. You simply cross the street (in the same direction) to the opposite side where you will  find the bus stop (in front of a Telenor mobile phone shop). Depending on the day and time when you arrive, you have to choose the right bus:
  • get on Bus Nr. 12 or 22 (they run on workdays  from Monday to Friday between 4.00 am  and 7.00 pm.). Direction: EGYETEMVAROS (this will be displayed at the top  of the bus)
  • get off at UNI-HOTEL

  • get on Bus Nr. 20 (it runs on the weekends and in early  morning/late evening hours on working days). Direction: TAPOLCA EGYETEMVAROS (this will be displayed at the top of the bus). Tapolca is the tourist district of Miskolc not far from the university. The bus goes onto the campus and you have to get off at UNI-HOTEL.


  • take Bus Nr. 31 starting from the station to SZTK RENDELŐ  (5 stops) and transfer to Bus Nr  12 or 22 (or 20 in the weekends). The same applies to buses as written above. When you get off Bus Nr 31, you have to stay in the same bus stop to wait for the transfer bus.

It takes about 30 minutes to get to the university. You can buy tickets at the railway station (300 HUF), or from the driver on the vehicle (400 HUF). You can ask your Hungarian mentor student to meet you at the station. However, if you have to find your way to the university on your own, please follow this route guide (or take a taxi), but do not get on any other buses.

Address of the Student Hostel:  Miskolci Egyetem, Miskolc-Egyetemváros (which means University of Miskolc, Miskolc-Campus), there is no specific street name or house number. The number of your hostel is E/6.
