Travel to Hungary is most common by airplane. The only regular international airport of Hungary is Ferihegy Airport of Budapest. From Budapest, Debrecen is about 220 km and access is best by train.

To drive, e.g. from Krakow to Debrecen, you are advised to plan a route which avoids the chaotic, jamming neighbourhood of Budapest. For maps of auto roads and highways see

From Budapest trains regularly start to Debrecen either from Nyugati Pályaudvar (Western Railway Station) or Keleti Pályaudvar (Eastern Railway Station).

The trains departing from Nyugati Station stop also at Kõbánya-Kispest Railway Station, which is closer to the airport. These railway stations lie on the route of the metro line 3 or "Észak-Déli metro vonal" (North-South metro line). This line is denoted by blue signs all over the metro system.

To reach Nyugati Station from Budapest Ferihegy Airport, choose either the blue city bus called Reptér Busz (Airport Bus, this has its terminal stations at the airport and the Kõbánya-Kispest metro and railway station) or hire an airport minibus at the airport. The price of the Airport Bus is 160 HUF or 180 HUF if purchased in advance or by the bus driver, respectively. The minibus costs much more but like a taxi takes you exactly to your destination. Once you are at Köbánya-Kispest Station you can either take the blue metro line to Nyugati Station, or take a train to Debrecen.

To reach Keleti Station, which is the most recommended way to depart to Debrecen, take Metro Line 2 (Red Line). The Blue and Red Lines cross each other at Deák tér.

Arriving from the city we suggest you using the metro system.
