Best way to get from Budapest to Szeged.

I understand train leaves from Nyguti. Thought I read that all trains leaving Nyguti stop in Szeged. Is that corrrect? Also is this the same train that stops at the airport. I read this information on a tourist information site and want the correct information. Thank you.

all trains to Szeged depart from Nyugati and stop at Ferihegy station, which is is the old airport terminal (Ferihegy1), that is not in use any more. You need to take a bus (200E) to get to the existing terminals (2A and 2B).

There many other destinations from Nyugati, apart from Szeged.

All trains that leave Nyugati and which then pass through Szeged will stop there. But as miszi3 says, plenty of other destinations from Nyugati.

Are you planning to go straight to Szeged when you land ?

Depending on where you are staying you will be very close to the train station. You can see the Dom from there. You might be tempted to walk but don't try it...you will get lost. Take one of the cheap taxis. Do not miss the Paprika and Kolbasz Museum. Also the great Synagogue is a must. Spend the pennies so they will turn on the lights to see the spectacular stained glass dome. Also you must try the Szegedi halaszle (spicy fish soup) signature dish of the city. They also make very good cold fruit soups there. And , of course, the Dom. August is the best time to visit as the entire month has a performing arts festival on a huge stage set up outside the Dom.
