My Day Starts at 2pm As i reached Budapest this time from Barcelona.

3pm: Checked into my Hostel, Not a great one though but this was the least I could manage coz on my last minute booking and its Sizget Music Festival (Sziget Festival island on the Danube. More than 1,000 performances take place each year) going on in Budapest so everything is booked.

Well this was my first time in Budapest and less planning leads me into this.

3:30pm I started walking towards Hungarian parliament building its just 5mins walking from my hostel. Magnificent and iconic work, one of the landmark historic significant things in Budapest. And you see this evey time you google Budapest.

4:00pm I am at the The Shoes on the Danube Bank it is a memorial in Budapest, Hungary. Conceived by film director Can Togay, he created it on the east bank of the Danube River with sculptor Gyula Pauer to honor the people who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II. Took some pictures.

Also at the end for the night life I prefer to go to Ruin Pub Budapest. Basically, ruin pubs were built in the old district VII (the old Jewish quarter) in the ruins of abandoned buildings or lots. After WWII, this neighborhood was torn into shreds, so it became a great place to build an underground bar scene. Every ruin bar is different- they look like normal bars from the outside and the inside is hip, lively, artsy, and funky with loud music, lots of bars, crazy cool decorations and loud music. The interior is HUGE inside with so many rooms. One room will be a hookah bar/theme with reggae playing, another room will have swanky neon lights and classy, and another room will have chairs hanging from the ceilings. So, a must try.(20euros with drinks and food)

Also I prefer to go by walking so I came across Budapest eye and old street markets of Budapest.

Also I prefer to go by walking so I came across Budapest eye. And also amazing streets of Budapest.

So , I ended My day with a Party in Budapest pretty long day but a day well spent. Returned by 12:00pm

There are a lot of things you can do in Budapest and honestly if you want to see the Budapest as a whole and relax and enjoy do try Danube river night cruise(Starting from 8 euros).

Thats pretty much i saw in Budapest in 9 hours not even a full day.
