In Topic: Final Reminder Re Trains From Budapest

21 March 2013 - 07:13 AM

Cheers. I live in Czech, so was just curious as to what the price difference between here in Hungary was.

(It's slightly cheaper here ~50p a Zlaty Bazant and ~70p a Plzen)
Re the cheaper nights out - I agree!!

I was in Slovakia for 6 months Bazant was new for me and I liked it. The Golden Tiger in Prague has amazing Plzen, I had to queue up 45mins before it opened at 3 and that was a Wednesday in the middle of January. Weird for me that Gambrinus is top dog in Czech I prefer many others.

 

Serbian Beer is decent I had the pleasure of trying quite a few varieties at the Belgrade Beerfest, a must see event.

How much are bottles of Zlaty Bazant and Pilsner in Budapest?

 

220-250HUF plus 25huf for the bottle

I think the exchange rate at the moment is around 340huf to the pound.

You dont get the huge discounts on bulk carry outs like you can from the supermarkets in the UK as they are sold by the bottle.

The difference in price between supermarkets and bars is much less significant.

It is in the bars you really feel how much cheaper a night out in eastern europe is.

Train is the best option. It is around 6 hours and only 24.60 euros return. You have to allow longer to travel by road in this region and road tolls are high. It will take at least 1 hour for a coach to cross the border. I would estimate 5 hours by coach. This is a journey we have made many times as I reside in Budapest myself and I love Belgrade. We have a car but are still taking the train.


In Topic: Tickets

Just got this reply from my hotel regarding hospitality/home end tickets.

 

"I called Football Association of Serbia to aks about that football match, they said that they did not start yet to sell tickets for that match. You can check on their website http://www.fss.rs/sr...z/kalendar.html if there is any news about it in the future period. They told me that sometimes they start to sell tickets just few days before the match, but also sometimes few months before, so there is no rules about it. It is the best option to check on their website or to remind us to contact them again."

 

How about that for organisation!
