7-11 December 2003.

We recommend you to travel by plane to Budapest, Ferihegy Airport, and then you can easily reach Miskolc by train. It is the Budapest-Keleti railway station from where during the day there is at least one train to Miskolc every hour. We recommend you to opt for one of the more comfortable IC(Intercity)-trains. Starting from 7.00 a.m. until 7.00 p.m. every two hours departs an IC-train to Miskolc. Please, visit the homepage: www.elvira.hu.

If you can take Airport Minibus Service, it is  the easiest and safest way to get from the air-port to the Keleti railway station. However, you can choose from other opportunities (taxi, city transport) as well.

Miskolc is situated about 200 km to the North-East of Budapest. A double ticket (in the 2nd class compartment) costs 3112 HUF (Hungarian Forint) at the moment. Note that you will need a seat reservation for an IC-train (an extra 440 HUF per trip).

From Miskolc-Tiszai railway station, where you arrive, you may take a taxi to the hotel. If you choose city transport take a tram No 1 as far as Szemere street stop, then change to bus No 2 and get off at Miskolc-Tapolca. You may buy tickets at the railway station or directly from the driver.

From the Hotels in Miskolc-Tapolca you can travel to the University by the bus No 2, from the bus station to the fourth stop named “Gyermekváros” and by walking to the CFCEU.

If we know your arriving date and time in Miskolc we can give you a lift to the hotel at request.

Thank you for your registration to the Meetings.

Visit to the Parliament in Budapest.

Before the visit we should meet at the Kossuth square that is located in front of the main gate of the Parliament. The place of the meeting is next to the big white flagpole standing on base of the State Flag. It can be seen from the whole square. We should meet latest 30 minutes before the point of time of the visit so that I have time to buy the tickets. The visit starts at the 12 gate that I will show you. The visit takes about 50 minutes the guide speaks in English language.

The point of time of visit is: 12.00 o'clock on 7th of December.

I have to emphasise that the cost of the travelling to visit the Parliament have to be paid by the participants themselves, also in that case if they are travelling from Miskolc to Budapest and back. This cost isn't included in the registration fee and this travelling was not in the preliminary program. Certainly the price of entering the Parliament is paid by the organisers.

Arriving in Miskolc

We are going to wait for the participants of the Presidium Meeting with a minibus, at the Tiszai railway station in Miskolc on 7th of December at 16:52 arriving IC train and on 8th of December at 8:52 a.m. arriving IC train. The minibus will be waiting at the parking place in front of the station, with "ISM" label.

Registration fee.

The registration fee must be paid in Hungarian Forint (HUF) at the registration in Miskolc, we can not accept other currencies or cards.

Looking forward to meet you in Hungary

Dr. Barátosi Kálmán
