So what is a Budapest must see? To do a proper Budapest sightseeing is certainly a great idea. This is one of those cities which offer a wonderful view. As the big river Danube splits the city into two, the hills and the castle of Buda look truly magnificent, especially because of the contrast created by the Pest side, that is flat but has this beautiful facade thanks to the Parliament, and the buildings built around the late 1800s and early1900s.
Shopping in Budapest is also quite recommended. Apart from the many independent brands and local gems, you will find all the shops necessary in the city centre, within walking distance. In the 5th district, around the so-called Fashion street you can start wondering around and be sure to find something interesting.
The Budapest nightlife offers a unique experience. There are many small bars and places to get lost at night, and of course there are clubs to entertain you late if you decide to dive deep. It is recommended to check out some of the infamous ruin bars as well, which are all special experiences.
The Budapest airport is relatively newly built, functioning pretty well, except perhaps the low-cost airlines’ methods of grouping and organising the travellers before their departure. From the airport you can get to the city centre pretty easily by taking a bus. It is easy to find, there are signs helping you. Naturally, there are taxi companies around as well. On the way to the airport, and in general, please make sure to use actual companies instead of free riders. This way you can avoid being overcharged for the route.
When it comes to the weather, the country has proper four seasons, so the look of the city is quite different in each season. For this reason, it is worth thinking about what we are looking for in the visist. The budapest time zone is Central European Standard Time = GMT+1.
We wish you a wonderful stay!
The Budapest attractions are interesting, inspiring and thought provoking - no wonder why the city became a centre for visitors who are keen on European history. If the weather allows it, walking around is a good way of getting to know the city. Maybe it is worth spending a day both on the Buda and the Pest side in order to get a good feel of Budapest. They are very different, presenting various chapters of the history of the country, and for this reason, it makes perfect sense to check both of them out well.
These are only a few interesting places - and the ones which are rather obvious, and would be a shame to miss them.
There are plenty of places to eat in the capital, all kinds of cultures and cuisines. However, we can only recommend to try the local food as well, for obvious reasons. According to our taste, the places to go to, the best Hungarian restaurants in Budapest would be Rézkakas, Aszú, Börze, Borkonyha, and Café Kör. According to the findings of TripAdvisor, it is worth trying places such Eat and Meet, Hungarikum Bistro, Gundel, Kacsa, Zeller Bistro, Mandragora, Két Szerecsen, etc.
It would be pretty hard to leave the town with bad culinary experiences, there is something for everyone. Look around properly if you only have a couple of days, since the supply is huge!
