Franz Liszt Airport (BUD) is on the outskirts of Budapest, about 10 miles to the southeast. That said, it can take a little while to get into the city centre on public transport. You’ll first need to take bus number 200E to the metro station at Kőbánya-Kispest, then ride the M3 line into town. The whole journey can take the best part of an hour.
