The flight time is only 15 minutes.
The boat will be an important mode of transportation, as parking options are very limited near the World Cup venue. I recommend everyone to choose public transport, arriving, for example, on one of the most beautiful tram routes in the world with tram 2, fast and high-capacity tram 1, or even by boat, which cannot be more comfortable and beautiful than that, as it is fast – said Palaz Nemeth, organizer of the Budapest 2023 World Cup in Nizerte. CEO. As we’ve said many times before, we want to give something extra with every moment of the World Cup, we want to give you an experience. – said eloquently Nemeth. Special guests staying in downtown hotels will also arrive by boat to the International Athletics Centre.
Those who are preparing for the opening at 6:00 pm and the evening programs can board the first boat in Batthyány Square from 4:30 pm, which will stop at the MÜPA docks, a few hundred meters from the entrance to the National Athletics Center. You can board the ship with a day ticket, which costs 1,500 HUF and is valid for an unlimited number of trips on the selected day. You can easily reach the venue for the World Cup in just over a quarter of an hour. The World Cup ticket is not valid for the cruise, the additional ticket must be purchased – Tell Nemeth to preach.

Between August 19th and 27th, boat trips will run daily, depending on the competition period, except for the evening of August 20th, when boats will not operate due to fireworks. Thank you for helping Mahart run the trip. After the last competition, everyone will have time to use the services of the stadium park, listen to concerts, take part in programs, and then comfortably go to the port of MÜPA – Budapest 2023 Nizerte World Cup organizer said. CEO. The boats will leave about every 30-40 minutes, but depending on demand, they can be more frequent.
On opening day, August 19, for example, the first ride will depart at 8 a.m. for the morning races, where you can cheer on Benc Halász, among others.
