New services connect Adriatic Sea, and hop-on hop-off for Danube

Buses to coast, boats on Bend

Bus company Flixbus began long-distance coach services from Budapest to the Croatian Adriatic coast on July 9. Closer to home, MAHART company has started a daily boat service in the Danube Bend area, which operates on a 'Hop-On Hop-off' basis.

The buses are running between Budapest and Rijeka, Opatija, Pula, Rovinj, Zadar, Biograd na Moru, Pakostane, Pirovac, Sibenik, Trogir and Split four times a week on Thursday through Sunday.

Passengers may also board the buses in Siófok. A one-way ticket costs HUF 6399. Rebooking is possible until 15 minutes before departure. Other seaside destinations are available via transfer in Zagreb.

FlixBus is one of Europe’s leading coach companies. It has an extensive route network of more than 400,000 daily connections to over 2500 destinations in 29 European countries.

The MAHART boat connects key settlements of the Danube Bend – Nagymaros, Visegrád, Dömös and Zebegény – where passengers can get off at any time, and so get to know a particular place, by hiking or even by cycle, then continue their journey by water on the next boat available within any given day from Friday to Sunday.

Tickets can be purchased on board for HUF 500/person per day by cash or credit card. Bicycles are allowed on board for HUF 200, and children under two years go for free.
