Budapest Pocket Guide

Images Of Budapest

Budapest is a city that still bears the scars of communism but one that is constantly developing into one of the world's greatest capitals. Split in two by the grand River Danube, on one side you have the Buda, the hilly side dominated by the castle and Royal Palace. On the other you have the Pest, a flat side where you will find the city's financial district, high street shops and its most popular bars. But something you can find anywhere in the city are its public baths...don't leave without treating yourself to a dip in one.

Budapest City Reviews

    Budapest surprised me a lot, I thought it would be a small and old city, but not. It's modern, big city, great atmosphere while walking on the streets. It's not a cheap city too. The most beautiful girls I've ever seen. Well, the city mixture the old and new, has a great nightlife, enjoy your stay there, I really recommend it!

    Breathtaking beautiful Budapest

    How can I describe Budapest? I'm not sure, you need to go and see Beautiful landmarks and landscapes. A buzzing atmosphere in the downtown, every day in Budapest is a party. A wide selection if museums and Baths if you need to relax. People are friendly and it is cheap if you want to go shopping :) Try the exiting kinds of food.

    Insider Tip:Try a small Gyros place close to the Octogon (corner of Eötvos utca and Szófia utca) The best gyros in my life. And discover the city on your own feet. The best way in my opinion or try the free walking tours.

    Visitato diverse capitale europee (Madrid,Roma,Helsinki,Stoccolma...) ma le emozioni che mi da Budapest sono uniche. Città stupenda e gente altrettanto. Compromesso eccezionale per qualità/prezzo. Visitata più volte non mi stancherà mai. La vita notturna per i giovani è una cosa incredibile. certo bisogna sapere dove andare!

    Europe's Best-Kept Secret

    I never intended to come to Budapest. However, I cannot imagine my Eurotrip without it now! Possibly the most beautiful city I've been to so far, you can walk around all day and never see anything ugly! From the breath-taking Basilica of King St. Stephen to the extensive collection of street art, it's hard not to find something to appreciate here. I spent 10 days my first trip, and 7 my next, and STILL feel the need to go back and keep looking! I definitely recommend it!

    Insider Tip:Don't miss the baths.. there are several and all offer different charms! Also try out caving on the Buda side.. kinda scary for claustrophobes like me, but worth the adventure! Also, EVERYTHING IS CHEAP. If that isn't a good selling point, I dunno what is!

    Insider Tip:Escape rooms. Go to Trap, go to Exit Point, you won't be disappointed!
