SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL IN POTENTIAL THEORY

There are several options for social programs, most notably are the followings:
Tour in the forest of Gemenc with narrow-gauge railway
Europe's largest connected floodplain forest with its 20 thousand hectares (77 sq. miles) streches from
Paks - Dunaszentbenedek to country border on both sides of Danube.
In this spectacular scenery meanders the narrow trail in a length of 30 kilometers (18 miles).
This event is planned on Tuesday afternoon (July 1) and the return ticket costs 600 HUF.
Furthermore, if we choose to travel by a steam traction engine, it involves an extra 500 HUF fee.

but they start special train on requests.
Essentially we have two options: start from Pörböly stop
