Railway Station and the Intercity Bus Station passing through the city center. There is an option between three types of tickets, which can be purchased either from Ticket Offices, approximately 1670 sales points (kiosks, convenience stores etc.) or inside the buses (ticket machines with slightly higher cost):

  • One Route (0,80 €)
