The Philosophical Faculty of Peter Pazmany University Budapest is on a Campus in the village Piliscsaba 25 km north of Budapest on the road and railroad to Esztergom. - If you arrive by aeroplane you can hire a shuttle bus from the airport Ferihegy to the University. The price is at present 3.600 HUF (ca. 36 DEM). You can also take a shuttle bus to downtown Budapest (1.200 HUF), and proceed by train. - If you arrive by train, you probably will arrive at Budapest Keleti (East) Station. From there you can take the red metro to Deak ter, changing to the blue metro line and go to Budapest Nyugati (West) Station. There you take a train to the direction of Esztergom (roughly every hour). The university has its own train station named 'Pazmaneum' (it is the first stop after a tunnel, travel time ca. 1 h). You can also take a bus from 'rpad hid' (=Arpad Bridge) bus station (blue metro line stop 'rpad hid') to Pazmaneum.
