Below you will find timed recordings of some public transport trips, driving journeys, cycling trips and tourist walks I have taken over the last year or so. Their routes and journey times were recorded to give you some idea of how far a main tourist attraction, landmark or city/town/village is in relation to a certain Hungarian starting point (i.e. train station or city centre).
Some examples: I recently travelled from Szeged to Budapest by car and later by train. I also timed certain tourist walks within Budapest, drove to certain government buildings and took public transport to them as well. I cycled around Budapest too. Here are some Journeys From Szeged.
I did these recordings so you have exact timings, correct directions and up-to-date information in terms of timetables, routes and website links. I did not want to put estimated times on this website because I know it is not nice when someone tells you a journey or distance is "ONLY 5 Minutes/Miles Away" when in reality it is 10-15 Minutes/Miles Away.
