By bus: if you are arriving to Kalocsa on a long-distance bus that stops at the hospital, we recommend you to get off at that stop since that is the closest one to the Palace. Getting off the bus, you can easily see the two towers of the Cathedral. The Szentháromság tér (Holy Trinity Square) is about 5 minutes from the hospital towards the Cathedral along Kossuth Lajos utca.
In case the bus only stops at the main station, walk along the High Street (Szent István király) út which begins at the square next to the bus stop (Malatin tér) and ends at the Szentháromság tér (Holy Trinity Square). It is about 15 minutes walk to the Cathedral (unfortunately, there is no local public transport between the bus station and the Szentháromság tér).
By car: from Budapest on Road 51, arriving on Pataji Street: turn right at the first traffic light and drive along Kossuth Lajos út until you reach Szentháromság Square.  For parking, turn right when reaching the back of the Cathedral. From Baja on Road 51, arriving on Bátyai út: turn left at the first traffic light at Malatin tér (next to the bus station). Drive along Szent István király út which leads to Szentháromság tér. A section of the road is pedestrian area and in that section traffic is diverted to the parallel roads (Tomori Pál utca, Hunyadi utca). From Kiskőrös on Miskei út: keep driving after the first traffic light (next to the bus station) along Szent István király út until you reach Szentháromság tér.
