Local information

Hungary, located in Central Europe, is undoubtedly one of the world’s favourite tourist destinations. The Hungarian culture, music, art, architecture, spas, unique flora and fauna, national parks, cuisine and wine attract millions of visitors annually. Find more information about Hungary here.

With its more than a thousand-year history, Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and one of the youngest capitals: Pest, Buda, and Óbuda merged in 1873, establishing the city we love and know now. The city offers an unparalleled combination of beautiful natural settings, rich historical and cultural heritage, fine cuisine, numerous sports, cultural and academic activities and events.

Pest, the Eastern part, is a bustling, vibrant city with rich museums, theatres, cafés and restaurants. Pest’s iconic buildings and areas include the neo-Gothic Parliament, housing the Hungarian Crown Jewels, and the Saint Stephen’s Basilica with the Holy Right Hand of King Saint Stephen, the founder of Hungary, on display, and the inspiring Jewish quarter.
Buda is more tranquil and relaxing, with much greenery and historic thermal baths; the Castle District, with charming streets, the Royal Palace and the Matthias Church, should not be missed by any visitor.

Budapest is a meeting place of East and West, a safe metropolis that offers a wealth of experiences for visitors.

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. 420 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.
