Budapest cogwheel railway (Fogaskerekű vasút) is the world’s third hill railway. It is not only common public transport regularly used by locals, but also a moving tourist attraction that can take you from Moszkva tér to the Buda hills and Children's Railway, a narrow-gauge forest railway operated by children (which is the other attraction worth seeing).
Tickets are purchased in advance and validated in the electronic or hand punchers on board. Tickets are available at newsstands, some tobacco shops, ticket offices in metro stations and BKV vending machines.
