Regardless of the type of transportation you choose from Budapest to Split, you will still need between 7 and 12 hours on this rather hectic and stressing route. Have you ever thought about more relaxing way to get to the sea?

From my personal experience, Budapest in July and August can be unbearably hot and muggy and my only wish was to reach the refreshing Adriatic Sea coast as fast as possible.
