Budapest has always attracted tourists from all over the world. After all, the capital of Hungary is considered one of the most beautiful in Eastern Europe. In any case, its architecture challenges not only Moscow and St. Petersburg, but also Prague and Sofia.
You can fly from Sheremetyevo airport by Aeroflot, Domodedovo is used by Transaero, but Vnukovo was chosen by the Hungarian Wizz Air carrier. The flight duration is 2 hours 40 minutes.
However, there are those who cannot stand airplanes and believe that they are likely to crash. For such travelers, a long-distance train is an ideal option. And lately this way of travel to Budapest is in great demand. Every day, the Moscow-Budapest train leaves the Kievsky railway station in the Russian capital, which takes only 38 hours to travel.
There is another option for ground transportation - a bus that follows the route "Moscow - Budapest". This bus leaves the Rizhsky railway station twice a week. You will have to spend at least 53 hours on the way. And then, if the situation on the roads is favorable.
As for traveling by car, here, in addition to a reliable car, you also need a Schengen visa in your passport. The first route option is along the M3 "Ukraine", R-101, E-381 and M-01 highways through the territory of Ukraine. After the Ukrainian-Hungarian border to Budapest, you need to drive about 230 kilometers along the M-12 highway. Travel time will take about 26 hours. But only if there are no big traffic jams on Russian territory.
There is also a second option for the route from Moscow to Budapest. First, you need to go along the M1 "Belarus" highway, and then move through the territory of Belarus, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia along the P-99, E-67 and E-69 highways. Well, after the Slovak-Hungarian border, there will be no more than 100 kilometers to Budapest. This path, of course, is a little longer, but on the other hand, more countries are "covered". And for many travelers, the number of countries visited in one trip is very important.
