COVID Testing for the trip back to the US.
I got a question from an individual going to Budapest soon. Thought the information would be useful for someone else.
There are a number of possibly more convenient locations, but my preference for all things medical is FirstMed. Its where I get things "fixed". https://firstmedcenters.com/ You can schedule on line.
You can call City Taxi and it might cost you 3 or 4 thousand forints. Or get to see some more of Budapest and take the tram. From the Opera House you walk up Andrassy ut (worth the time to see the architecture and shops) to the first major intersection called "The Okotogon" because of the shape of the intersection. Might take 7 or 8 minutes.
At the intersection look to your left and in the middle of the road you will see the 4/6 Tram line stop. Get on a tram that is running from right to left. Validate your ticket or know where your travel card is in case asked.
Ride the tram for six stops to Széna tér. There is sign on the ceiling of each car that shows the next stop so you cant miss it. They announce it too but Hungarian words can be a bit hard to understand. About a 10 minute trip past the Nyugati Train Station (by Eiffel), the most beautiful McDonalds you ever saw (LOL), the Comedy Theater (outstanding architecture), across Margrit Island Bridge with a stop half way, and into Buda.
Get off and with your back to the tram you will see the building that the clinic is in. Its about a block away across two streets, but you can see it and its a very unique building.
The photo should open looking at the building (see the FirstMed logo above the door). Spin the photo 180 degrees and you can see the tram you just go off.
Clinic is on the 5th floor.
Now you are a short walk to the Buda Castle District. Maybe 5 or 6 minutes to the entry gate
