Try it at: Szimpla Kert, BudapestSlovenia – Union
The final stop for the night is at Callas, which is one of the oldest coffee shops, where you get to try one of their yummy cakes, along with a hot drink of your choice, like hot chocolate.
The one street food you have to try in Budapest is Langos, which you can have it from the food stalls on the first floor in the Grand Market Hall, or at Retro Langos. Langos or Langosh, is leavened dough fried in high quality oil, brushed with fresh garlic, sprinkled with salt, and served with the serving of your choice. The best toppings has to be that of sour cream, cheese and onion, and either bacon/ham or anything else. It is essentially a crispy, strechy deep fried snack, ready in moments.
Kacsa Restaurant:If you are up for some traditional Hungarian food. They have good wine collection from their Hungarian cellar and live gypsy music to set your mood.
I chose to visit Szechenyi Thermal Bath, the most popular and known to hold title for the largest medicinal bath in Europe. It has lavish 15 thermal baths and 3 swimming pools supplied by thermal springs.
6. Hangout at Gozsdu CourtyardThis is a popular local hangout where you will find multiple restaurants, pubs and bars. The moment you enter the courtyard, you will feel like stepping into a festival.
The third largest parliament in the world, this popular landmark is photographer’s muse. The Parliament holds the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary. It does not need any further introduction!
4. The Shoes on the Danube BankThis is one of the most moving memorials that can be found in Budapest. Trail of iron footwear depicts history about those thousands who were executed along this riverbank during World War II.
Opened in 1884, is the masterpiece and one of the greatest architects of all times. The building is being renovated until 2019 and therefore I could not visit inside the Opera House.
Located in the city Centre, this public square is a major square in Budapest. Famous for its iconic statues, it holds its rank in World Heritage Site. The square sits between the buildings of 2 museums and is considered as a cultural mecca. A walk to this square is must to soak some Hungarian history.
1. St Stephens BasilicaThe biggest cathedral of Budapest, built between 1851- 1905, St Stephen’s Basilica stands 96m tall like the Hungarian Parliament.If you are an enthusiastic personality (and fit as well!), go ahead and climb to the top to appreciate panoramic views of Budapest.
4. Fisherman’s BastianFisherman’s Bastian is without a doubt, one of the landmarks in Budapest. Known for its lookout terraces, it is notable tourist destination.
Built in 13th Century, it is one of the finest churches in Budapest. It is located atop the Buda Castle hill and known for its spectacular architecture. Matthias Church holds significant religious weight in Budapest.
"Castle District" of Budapest encompasses popular places like Buda Castle, Hungarian National Museum, Fisherman’s Bastion, Hospital in Rock, Royal Palace and Matthais Church.1. Buda Castle (The Royal Palace)
This is the castle that is easily visible from everywhere in Budapest. Set on atop castle hill, this castle offers commanding views over Budapest and Danube River. You may opt to take funicular railway or climb the stairs to reach atop the hill.
Mika Kert is a minute away from Ellátó Kert. This was once an iron and copper factory and named after the factory owner. Enjoy a summery day at the garden and order draught beer. Drop in at the neighboring Kőleves Kert – a popular students’ hangout with just the right vibe.
Cross towards Kazinczy Uta, you are now on your way to Ellátó Kert. Kert is the Hungarian word for a garden. Enjoy the lively garden ruin pub has an open courtyard. It is extremely popular with the locals. You must sample the ‘pinky’ - a pink grapefruit-vodka shot drink. You can also take a shot at snooker here, and order some tasty wraps.#4 - Mika Kert and Kőleves Kert
Built in 1902, Gozsdu Udvar is a sprawling complex with seven interconnected buildings. It has historic significance as well – the oldest Jewish prayer houses in Budapest were set up here. Today, it boasts of several cafes, bars, shops and exhibitions – a vibrant cultural and social space. Check out the DiVino Wine Bar – with a selection of more than 140 wines! Hungary is famous for its wines – with about 22 wine regions spread across the country. Do try the white dessert wine from the Tokaj region.
After Szimpla, head next door to El Rapido – a Mexican Tapas Bar on Kazinczy uta. Try Tequila shots as well as Cuban beer. You can also pick up a few knick knacks at the flea market stalls here.#6. Füge udvar and Doboz
If slot-machine games are your thing, you will have a ball at Füge udvar. It is among the most affordable ruin pubs in Budapest, sample a cheap beer or fröccs. After Füge udvar, walk to Doboz ruin bar if you are into EDM.#7. Instant Fogas Ház (IF)My favourite is Fogas Ház or ‘House of Teeth’, a renovated denture repair shop! The prices here are budget friendly, and the assortment of mismatched tables and chairs, string lights add to the atmosphere!
This is the big daddy of the lot – it set the trend for Budapest ruin pubs. Arguably the best nightspot in Budapest, that also means it attracts the crowds. I would suggest you skip it during the evening, and instead visit it the during the day. However, if you love partying with the crowds, this is an experience like no other. Szimpla Kert has a number of party rooms and floors – each playing a different music theme. Choose your favourite and boogie away.
#2 - LéhűtőLéhűtő is a craft beer bar located at a corner of Gozdu Udvar. Sample Hungarian handcrafted beers here. The chilled stouts and wheat beers taste godsent, especially on a hot summer day.#3 - Ellátó Kert
Hungarian Parliament BuildingThis is the seat of the national assembly of the Hungarian Parliament and is an amazing example of Gothic architecture. Being neo -gothic it is decorated with luxurious finishes and interiors. You can even visit the inside of this building with a guided tour, which can be booked at the lobby. There are guards surrounding the building, but they are not intimidating and the building is very accessible to the public. It remains the largest and tallest building in Budapest.
Szechenyi BathOne of the largest thermal baths on the continent, this hot spring turned into a public spa and pool is one of the most famous and people from everywhere come and visit.You can come walking from the museums or take the next stop on the metro. A while in the hot water here, will relax you and wash away all the tiredness of the past few days. The entry price is around €20 with massages costing extra. Spend the whole evening here as you bid adieu to Budapest.
