Every alley, every shop visited every restaurant will give you more desire to continue the adventure. Nothing, absolutely nothing will disappoint you. Both rustic and modern, destroyed and enhanced by her history, we end up envying her fascinating beauty and don’t want to leave her. Its giant halls full of fruits and vegetables lost in the city, small traditional bakeries where you can enjoy enormous cream cakes, ruin bars in the former Jewish ghetto… Budapest has found the perfect balance between its old demons and new aspirations.
Prague to Budapest : How & How Much ?
If you’re lucky you can get a special promotion (especially with Eurolines) 700kc go and back or sometimes even 500kc (yes still go and back).
Otherwise, Student Agency is offering the journey to Budapest from Prague for 800kc which is still very competitive!
You have Orangeways, hungarian company who can be cheaper than eurolines if you book your ticket 2 months before.
By train, it will cost you approximately 1200kc go and back. It’s around 7h and a half and you will arrive directly in the city centre of Budapest.

Blablacar, Not the cheapest way but probably the most interesting one if you hate the one to one. Basically you travel with 2, 3, 4 or more people you never met before and you can talk, talk, talk or just listen to others talking, it’s up to you !
Budapest has probably the cheapest hostels of Europe! Many are located in the best areas of the city for very (very) interesting prices (from 5 to 12 € with (if you’re lucky) or without breakfast). If it’s your first visit, i strongly recommend you to stay in Pest better than Buda where ruin bars, restaurants, cafés and other clubs are more original from a corner to another!
And least but not last the Couchsurfing :
Very popular in cities like Budapest, you will probably find your perfect host in 2 click.
