Travellers may reach Hungary and its capital by various means of transportation, such as:
By air: the most important air hub is Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, receiving flights from numerous destinations. The closest international Airports are in Vienna and in Bratislava, in which case you will either need a transfer flight or a transfer by an international coach bus/train.
By waterway: the unique possibility to arrive to the venue of the FINA World Championships by the river Danube is there for you if you take a ship. Please consult dedicated websites if you are interested, such as: http://www.mahartpassnave.hu/en/timetable/international-hydrofoil-lines/budapest-vienna-hydrofoil-line/
By road: all major highways and motorways run into the capital, so whatever direction you may come talking a car, bus etc. you will arrive conveniently, as in our case “all roads lead to Budapest”. Important: if you rent a car, make sure it has a highway sticker, which is compulsory on local roads!
