Charter bus for Helia Hotel guest:
While renting a bus isn’t the least expensive way to travel, it simplifies things greatly by avoiding the need to coordinate taxis. This is particularly handy if a large group of 100 people need to leave at the same time, as taxis might be delayed or overwhelmed, especially during busy times like Saturday afternoons. Public transport isn’t the best option either, since it involves changing lines to reach the sports hall. A charter bus can accommodate 50 people, and if it’s fully booked, the cost will be €25 per person for round trips on both event days.

Charter bus schedule for Saturday (if fully booked):
09:00 AM front of Helia Hotel to Folyondar Sport facility
17:30 PM from Folyondar Sport facility to Helia Hotel

Charter bus schedule for Sunday: (if fully booked)
09:00 AM front of Helia Hotel to Folyondar Sport facility
17:30 PM from Folyondar Sport facility to Helia Hotel

Lunch – Sandwiches for Saturday:
Folyondar Sports Center has a small buffet, with limited capacity will not be sufficient to serve 150 people in a short lunch period. Therefore it is advisable to order baguette sandwiches. We will featuring two types of huge once Ham Eiffel the other is a Chees Gourmet.

Price for 2 baguettes: €10

Shinken handling: There is no restriction to take you sharp blade to Hungary! However please have this declaration letter with you, and its link is HERE
