Miskolc is the third largest city in Hungary.

Hitchhiking out

East towards Debrecen (N35)

Take a bus from the central bus station to the village Nyékládháza (305 HUF) and get off at the small train station there. From the train station, looking south you can see the national road. Much traffic stops at villages further down the road, but it is easy to hitch onwards.

West towards Budapest

It is very easy to get a ride to Budapest from Miskolc as there is a direct motorway (M30) to the Hungarian capital and most of the drivers are heading directly to Budapest. However, the road leading to the motorway is quite far away from the city center, so you must take bus 4 from Búza tér or bus 44 from the bus stop Centrum to the Cora hypermarket on the edge of the city. After getting off, look for the road 304 in front of the Cora parking lot. Walk down the road and thumb next to the sign marking the end of Miskolc.

Public Transport

Public transport in Miskolc is not the densest, but you can reach all the important places in reasonable time with the various bus lines and the tram line. However, blackriding is nearly impossible in Miskolc as you have to get at the first door and the driver checks your ticket, so you'd better buy a ticket. Tickets can be bought at various ticket offices for 280 Forints (1€) or on the spot for 360 Forints (1.2€) Schedules and route numbers can be found at http://mkvzrt.hu (also available in English).
