Things to do in Budapest

 

We collected some travel hacks for those who need some guidance and help with the planning and sorting out the best places to visit in the capital of Hungary, Budapest.

If you’re visiting Budapest for the first time and you’re a little nervous or unsure of the ins and outs of visiting one of the city’s thermal baths, you will definitely have to check out some information about each and every of them, even though you cannot go wrong by picking from them.

There are places that you simply can’t miss off your Budapest itinerary. From relaxing in one of the city’s famous thermal baths to trying traditional goulash at Budapest’s Opera House, this guide to Budapest is great for first-time travellers to the city. The Fisherman’s Bastion is one attraction that should be on every visitor’s itinerary for Budapest.  We can easily say that it’s a must see and must visit place. It’s a busy place so we thoroughly recommend visiting the bastion early in the morning. In the afternoon, especially in the summertime, the place can be quite busy and hectic, so we recommend walking around it in the early hours of the day.

If you think by visiting the Buda Castle area and the Fisherman’s Bastion you’ve ticked off every attraction from your Budapest guide, think again!. You’ll find some great additional things to add to your Budapest itinerary by checking out some places in downtown Budapest and also in the suburb area of the city, or we highly recommend visiting the city’s ruin bars.

Every in-depth Budapest itinerary includes the majestic Parliament Building and a visit to Heroes’ Square. Budapest is a great destination for a short city break across the weekend, you can squeeze a lot of things into a condensed visit here, since the size of the city is just perfect to explore a lot in a very short time.

From soaking in thermal baths to admiring striking Hungarian architecture, there are other fun and exciting things to do in Budapest. In the next articles we would like to provide a great read to any holidaymaker who is heading to Budapest and is in need of some inspiration and information.

As we said it before Budapest’s thermal baths are one of the city’s most famous attractions and something you have to get on your itinerary for Budapest. From the steaming saunas and pools, every small element of a relaxing spa weekend is in your hands right after you step into these gorgeous buildings.

There are many fantastic drinking and dining scenes located across the city, some of the best ruin bars to be found in the Jewish Quarter. Make sure you get Szimpla Kert on your Budapest itinerary as well. A food tour is also a great way of gaining an insight into the dining culture of a new destination

Experience the city, capture every gorgeous moment and nice memory. Budapest is a place that can truly offer you a memorable visit and some priceless memories.
