Practical information for the International Week 7-12 April 2019

1. What is “International Week”?

International Week (IW) was first held by Edutus University (former College for Modern Business Studies) in 1995. It is annually held either at the end of March or at beginning of April.

The goal of International Week:

  • to learn about the international aspects of the theories in the chosen field;
  • to improve foreign language and presentation skills and
  • to develop adaptation and problem solving skills in an international environment.

2. Travelling to Hungary By air

2.1 By air

If you traveling by air you will arrive at the Liszt Ferenc Airport, Ferihegy. It is located about 24 kilometres south-east of the capital (Budapest). Today all planes arrive to and depart from Liszt Ferenc Airport Ferihegy terminal 2A and 2B.

2.2 By train

The capital (Budapest) can be easily accessed by train from all directions, as it has direct rail links with 16 European capitals. The discounts popular in many European countries (BIJ, ISTC, Inter-Rail) are also available on international lines to Hungary.

You will arrive in Budapest at the Eastern, Western or Southern Railwaystation (Keleti, Nyugati or Déli Pályaudvar). The railway stations are nearthe city centre and they are well connected to the public transportation network.

Tickets and discounts:

  • BIJ provides a 30-50% discount for passengers under the age of 26 for a journey between a chosen point of departure and destination
  • The InterRail pass does not set an age limit. It entitles the holder of the pass to unlimited travel within the time and area of validity.
  • Euro Domino is a pass for unlimited travel within the country of choice for 3-8 (not necessarily consecutive) days within a month. It also entitles the holder to purchase a return ticket to another country at half price. The following sites can help you arrange your train trip to Hungary:
    www.mav-start.hu
    www.eurail.com

2.3 By coach

The Hungarian coach company, Volánbusz Rt. is a member of Eurolines (www.eurolines.com) and has scheduled buses to 15 countries (Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and to the former Yugoslavian countries).

The company also sells tickets of its partner companies in 8 other countries (Bulgaria, Denmark, Greece, Norway, Spain, Croatia, Lithuania and Portugal).

2.4 By car

If you wish to travel by car, you should remember that car registration and insurance papers need to be with the driver at all times. A valid driving license, vehicle license/registration and a country-sign on the vehicle are required to enter the country by car.

Good to know:

Motorists in Hungary drive on the right and overtake on the left. It is forbidden to overtake in narrow curves, crossroads and in the immediate vicinity of pedestrian crossings.

Dimmed headlights must be turned on outside populated areas even during daytime.

Wearing a seatbelt is compulsory.
Hand-held mobile phones are not allowed to be used by drivers.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is strictly forbidden. The legal blood alcohol level for drivers is 0.0%!

Breaking the highway-code can result in severe fines or even prosecution.

The speed-limit is 50 km/h in residential areas, 90 km/h on roads outside populated areas, 110 km/h on highways, and 130 km/h on motorways.

The condition of roads varies greatly and there are always some roads under construction. You should be prepared for traffic jams and diversions.

When your car breaks down, “The Yellow Angels” service will provide basic repairs on the spot free of charge if you are a member of any affiliate of the Hungarian Automobile Club. Road Emergency – “The Yellow Angels” (toll number): 188

3. From the airport to downtown and to the Hotel Flamenco

3.1 Taxi and Airport Minibus Service

An easy way to reach downtown from the Liszt Ferenc Airport (Ferihegy)is to take the yellow Taxi service (see above). This is the quickest way to get to the city centre.

Alternatively, on arrival you can take the Budapest Airport’s frequent minibus service (Tel: +36 1 296 8555 from 6am-10pm; www.airportshuttle.hu ) which is a cheap and reliable way to reach any address in the downtown area. For a small surcharge, they’ll even take you to districts further afield so long as the address is within city limits. Single or return tickets are purchased from the company’s passenger service desks located in both terminals.

Returning to the airport is easy as well – simply call the number given above (at least 24 hours before you intend to travel) and they’ll pick you up from your hotel. The shuttle, which operates from 6am-10pm daily, costs approx.. 3200 HUF per person (5500 HUF back & forth) with each transit vehicle seating between 8-11 people.

During peak periods the company may also use larger 16-seater Mercedes (or equivalent) vehicles. The only disadvantage to the service is that, as visitors will almost certainly share a minibus with other passengers, it will stop at several locations i.e. other hotels/pensions before arriving at your chosen destination.

3.2 By public transport to the center of Budapest

Public Transportation Means (bus, metro, tram) can be used for a fare: while the one-way ticket costs HUF 350 (1,20 EUR), the 7-day ticket is much more advantageous. Therefore you are strongly recommended tobuy a Budapest 7-day travel card, which costs 4950 HUF (cca 16 EUR) for one week.

3.2.1 From the Airport to “Kőbánya-Kispest” metro station:

Bus 200E: Passengers are taken by a direct bus service from Liszt Ferenc Airport Terminal 2, to Kőbánya-Kispest (KÖKI) ’blue ’ (other name ’M3’) Metro Terminal

3.2.2 From ”Kőbánya-Kispest/KÖKI” with the ’blue’ (’M3 ’) Metro line to the station to ”Kálvin tér”

3.2.3. From ”Kálvin tér” metro station transfer to the ’green’ (’M4’) Metro line, choose the direction KELENFÖLD VASÚTÁLLOMÁS and get off at the ”Móricz Zsigmond Körtér” station.

From the Móricz Zsigmond krt. it takes 4-5 minutes on foot to reach the Hotel Flamenco (H- 1113 Budapest, Tas Vezér u. 3-7. Tel: + 36 1 889 5600)4.

8.2 8 April 2019, Monday

Programme:

Visiting the Parliament – Meeting point 16:45 – Edutus Ház, Falk Miksautca 1.

The Hungarian Parliament Building is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe’s oldest legislative buildings. It lies in Kossuth Lajos Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary[2] and still the tallest building in Budapest. Budapest was united from three cities in 1873 and seven years later the Diet resolved to establish a new, representative Parliament Building, expressing the sovereignty of the nation. An international competition was held, and Imre Steindl emerged as the victor; the plans of two other competitors were later also realized in the form of theEthnographic Museum and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, both of which face the Parliament Building. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904.

One of the famous parts of the building is the hexadecagonal (sixteen-sided) central hall, with huge chambers adjoining it: the Lower House and the Upper House. The modern National Assembly is unicameral and meets in the Lower House, while the Upper House is used as a conference and meeting room. TheHoly Crown of Hungary, which is also depicted in the coat of arms of Hungary, has been displayed in the central hall since 2000. Further features include thestained glass and glass mosaics by Miksa Róth.

About 100,000 people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms of gold were used. Since World War II the legislature became unicameral and today the government uses only a small portion of the building. During the communist regime a red starperched on the top of the dome, but was removed in 1990.

8.3 9April2019Tuesday
Excursion to Visegrád by ship combined with a renaissance joust and a royal feast incl. dinner in the Renaissance Restaurant VisegrádMeeting point at 8:45 – Hotel Flamenco/Lobby. Ship starts at 9.45 from the Batthyány tér (Buda side)

Guests are welcome by fanfare on arrival to the tournament at the port ofVisegrád.
An introduction is told to the visitors about the history of the town and the castle, while visiting Solomon’s Tower (including exhibition rooms on request).

The roof terrace of the tower provides an excellent view to the Danube bend. Welcome drinks are served here (wine, or cocktail with freshly baked cookies).

The performance takes place on the tournament field located next to the tower. A king and a queen are selected from the guests, they are dressed in robes and crowned by the knights.

On the call of the king, the knights march in and show their targeting and fighting skills with medieval weapons to the royal couple and their guests. The realistic face-to-face battles recall the courage and spirit of the medieval knights in an exciting way with a bit of humor. The open-air performances feature the royal falconer.

At the end of the show, guests not only have the opporunity to handle some of the weapons (with the help of the knights), but also take part in a medieval team building game. It is higly recommended to take part at this event for our guest students and staff.

The tournament is followed by a royal feast in the Renaissance Restaurant

(huge size of dinner and drink).

8.4 10 April 2019 Wednesday

Budapest Castle area sightseeing by funicular and professional tourist guide
Meeting point at 13.00 Edutus Ház, Falk Miksa u. 1. / Villányi út 11-13.Sightseeing starts at 13.30 at the Funicular uphill station (at the Chain bridge!)

8.5 11 April 2019 Thursday – Visiting Margitsziget (Margarete Island) Meeting point at 13.00 Edutus Ház, Falk Miksa u. 1. / Villányi út 11-13.

Margaret Island (Hungarian: Margit-sziget) is a 2.5 km long island, 500 metres wide area in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest, Hungary. The island is mostly covered by landscape parks, and is a popular recreational area. Its medieval ruins are reminders of its importance in the Middle Ages as a religious centre. The island spans the area between the Margaret Bridge and the ÁrpádBridge . Originally, the island was 102.5 metres above sea level, but now has been built up to 104.85 metres above sea level to control flooding.

In the 14th century the island was called Island of Rabbits, before being named after Saint Margaret (1242–1270). Margaret was the daughter of Béla IV ofHungary, and she lived in the Dominican convent on the island.

The Knights of St. John settled on the island in the 12th century. Among the present historical monuments of the island are the 13th century ruins of aFranciscan church and a Dominican church and convent, as well as aPremonstratensian church from the 12th century. Members of the Augustinianorder also lived on the island.

The island was dominated by nunneries, churches and cloisters until the 16th century. During the Ottoman wars the monks and nuns fled and the buildings were destroyed. In the 18th century it was chosen to be the resort of palatines. It was declared a public garden in 1908.

Since the 1980s, entry by cars has been limited; only a single bus line and taxis, alongside the service traffic of local stores and restaurants are allowed to enter.

The island houses various sports establishments, like the Palatinus water park(the largest open-air swimming complex in Budapest), the Alfréd Hajós sports pool (where the European Water Polo Championships 1958, 2006 and 2010 took place), a tennis stadium and an athletics centre. The island has a rubber-coated running track measuring 5.35 kilometers (3.33 miles), and is popular among both locals and tourists.

There is a small Japanese Garden with a mildly thermal fish pond and a tiny zoo featuring a wide range of exotic waterfowl among other animals. The Music Fountain and the Water Tower are protected UNESCO sites.

There is also an open-air theatre accommodating an audience of 3500, and several clubs and restaurants. For exploration and pastime, four-person cycle cars or small electric cars can be rented for use on the area of the island.
