How to Reach

By train

Trains leave from both the Budapest Nyugati and Keleti stations several times a day. It is recommended to take one of the many InterCity trains, as the journey will take approximately three hours. You will have to pay an additional fee for your seat reservation , but the limited seats may disappear quickly, especially on weekends when many students are travelling to and from the capital. InterCity trains run either through Debrecen or Miskolc.
If you choose not to take an InterCity, the journey will last closer to four hours as the train makes more stops. The train also will likely be less clean and less comfortable.

By car

As of August 2007 the M3 motorway will connect Nyiregyhaza directly to Budapest. Otherwise from Polgar take route 36. From Miskolc take #37 to #38. From Debrecen take route #4.
