As you might already know, the event centre is located in the town of Velence, right on the shore of Lake Velence, the third biggest natural lake of Hungary. It takes about 35 minutes from Budapest city centre or 50 minutes from Budapest International Airport (BUD) to reach Velence on the motorway. The town is also well connected with public transport.
All competition venues are in a proximity of 10 to 40 kilometres from the event centre and are all accessible within a 30–minute drive. The area offers a great variety of activities to be enjoyed before or after races – stay tuned for our recommendations of leisure programmes! Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe can also be reached in half an hour on the highway or by train.
