How to get there
Miskolc has excellent railway connection to Budapest. Intercity trains depart from Budapest Keleti station to Miskolc Tiszai station every hour and there are express trains in every second hours. Connections are really good to Debrecen and Nyíregyháza too by Intercity trains which run every second hours. Miskolc has railway connection with the Slovakian town Kosice (there is an international airport here) and there is a night train to the Polish town Kraków.
Travelling to the terminus of the railway the best choose is tram nr. 1 which starts from the square in front of Miskolc Tiszai station.
