Local information

Hungary is undoubtedly one of the world’s most favourite tourist destinations. The Hungarian culture, music, art, architecture, spas, unique flora and fauna, national parks, cuisine and wine attract millions of visitors every year. Despite its small size, Hungary has an abundance of natural attributes. In the 10 national parks there are wild river areas, rolling hills, expansive lakeside areas, mountain ridges covered with thick forests, endless plains and the unrivalled treasures of the limestone region.

You can find more information about Hungary here.

Budapest, with its more than a thousand-year history, is one of Europe's youngest capitals, as Pest, Buda and Óbuda merged together in 1873 making the city we love and know now. The life of the inhabitants was determined by the river Danube as it provided merchants free crossing and inhabitants’ shelter among surrounding hills. Budapest is rich in natural beauties and its architecture is world-famous as you can find structures from many eras.

Budapest is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The neo-Gothic Parliament, currently the biggest building in Hungary with its 268 metres length, contains amongst other things the Hungarian Crown Jewels. At Saint Stephen's Basilica the Holy Right Hand of the founder of Hungary, King Saint Stephen is on display. Castle Hill and the Castle District involves three churches, six museums, and hosts interesting buildings, streets and squares. The former Royal Palace is one of the symbols of Hungary – and has been the scene of battles and wars ever since the 13th century. Budapest is home to over 35 higher education institutions, among which there is a large number of universities. Under the Bologna Process, many offered qualifications are accredited in countries all across Europe. Many students from other European countries spend one or two semesters in Budapest as part of the Erasmus Programme. The Budapest University of Technology and Economics is the most prestigious university in learning engineering in the country. It has a unique qualification program and students can choose from a wide variety of fields of engineering.

Public transportation in Budapest is provided by the Centre for Budapest Transport (BKK), one of the largest transportation authorities in Europe. BKK operates 4 metro lines – including the historic Line 1, the oldest underground railway in continental Europe –, 5 suburban railway lines, 35 tram lines, 14 trolleybus lines, 246 bus lines (including 41 night routes), 3 boat services, and smart vehicle sharing networks providing cars, bicycles and electric scooters.

Taxi: Taxis in Budapest are marked with the word “Taxi”, often accompanied by a company name/logo such as “City Taxi”. All taxi vehicles must have a yellow registration plate, as opposed to the white background on regular car plates. All taximeters are equipped with a receipt-printing function, displaying the fares charged and the identification of the driver.

The climate of Budapest is continental. In mid-October there is usually a nice weather with a maximum temperature of 13-20°C, and during the night a minimum temperature ranging between 0-10°C. Nevertheless some rainy days can be expected.

The Organizers of the Conference do not provide insurance and do not take responsibility for any loss, accident or illness that might occur during the Conference or in the course of travel to or from the meeting site. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the participants to check their coverage with their insurance provider.

The electricity supply in Hungary is 230 V AC (50 Hz). In Hungary type F plugs are used.

The unit of currency is the Hungarian Forint (HUF), denoted as “Ft” by the Hungarians. International credit cards (EC/MC, Visa) are accepted at most hotels, restaurants and shops. Revolut cards might also be useful. AMEX is rarely accepted by retailers. ATMs are available all over Budapest. (1 EUR is equivalent to approx. 350 HUF). Banking hours are usually from 9:00 until 17:00 from Monday to Thursday, on Fridays banks tend to close earlier, usually 15:00 or 16:00.

As with other EU member states, all emergency services can be reached by dialling 112. Hungary also maintains its internal numbers:

Police (Rendőrség) – 107

Ambulance (Mentők) – 104 (In Budapest, dial 06 1/311 – 1666 for English speaking service)

Fire service (Tűzoltóság) – 105

To obtain the international operator (for placing collect calls etc.), dial 199.

The Hungarian operator is available on 197.
