About Budapest

The Hungarian capital, Budapest, offers a vast array of experiences and sights. With over 1.7 million inhabitants and a growing number of tourists, the urban atmosphere stays lively not only on hot summer nights at the Danube, but also on the chilly winter evenings in the ruin bars. Walking through the streets of Budapest you can discover beautiful architectural masterpieces, find squares and nooks filled with history, or discover culinary experiences in both simpler and more elegant restaurants. The Buda side of the city offers a green, peaceful environment for its visitors, but you can also easily get over to the vivid Pest side via one of the seven bridges. Throughout its long history Budapest has retained an essence of each era, so some compare it to Vienna, some to Prague, or even to Berlin – one thing is for sure though: Budapest is one of Europe’s hidden treasures worth discovering!

Places of Interest in Budapest

As one hits the city center of Budapest, it’s easy to get overwhelmed: numerous stunning buildings, parks, museums, and baths await eager visitors. You should definitely check out the Castle District of Buda – so the castle itself, the National Gallery, many charming streets and alleys, the Matthias Church, and the Fisherman’s Bastion. Various different parts of this district overlook many precious and unique attractions, such as the Parliament or the Gellért Hill. The Heroes’ Square and the City Park (Városliget) are also worth visiting. In case you are looking for a more relaxed program, you can enjoy the Széchenyi, the Gellért, or one of the other baths. The Museum of Fine Arts offers classic exhibitions year around, while the Ludwig Museum presents contemporary pieces and installations. If you are visiting Budapest during the summer months, do not forget to drop by one of Europe’s biggest festivals: Sziget!

Culture and History of Budapest

Even though Budapest is a well-known, cosmopolitan city today, it took a long time to reach this state. The city’s history dates back to ancient times when the confederation of the seven Hungarian tribes, led by Árpád, arrived in the Pannonian Basin and decided to settle. Buda and its surroundings were occupied by the Ottoman (Turkish) for 150 years from 1541 on. Although oppression shattered the nation, the numerous baths and mosques are still admired and frequently visited by both locals and foreigners today. What is known as Budapest today was established in 1873 by the merging of three smaller cities, namely Pest, Buda, and Óbuda. Your FlixBus might also cross the well-known Chain Bridge (Lánchíd) that was also built in this ’Reform Era’. The buildings of the romantic Budapest still carry some wounds from times of war and revolution, but the modern times give the capital opportunity to flourish again.

Nightlife in Budapest

Budapest is unique in many respects, but the vibrant nightlife and unique parties are definitely one of the most outstanding characteristics of the city. The ruin pubs of Budapest are world renowned nowadays – old buildings, shabby furniture, colorful lights, and a pitcher of cold beer describe these places best. The 6th and 7th districts are full of these pubs, but also other clubs, concert halls, wine bars, and places serving handcraft beer. It is easy to get lost in the Budapest night when hopping from one bar to another, finding different surprises and adventures each evening. Some places you definitely want to check out are Fogasház, Gozsdu Udvar, or Beeróság! You might also want to walk out to the middle of Margaret Bridge or Liberty Bridge to check out the dazzling view of the lit up Castle District, the Parliament, and the Chain Bridge – absolutely amazing!

Interesting Facts about Budapest

The versatile city of Budapest hides many interesting attractions for its visitors. It’s the city, where classic and modern buildings mingle, where different cultures and ages live side by side, where the contemporary cosmopolitan mentality and traditional, historic places can all be found – meaning that there are loads of sights and secrets to discover. Did you know, for example, that the Parliament of Budapest has 365 towers? Or that the first subway line of Europe was also built in this city? Have you heard that right next to Oktogon square, there is a building which is a miniature copy of Florence’s Palazzo Strazzi? Curiosities like these are awaiting bus travelers in beautiful Budapest. If you want to see it for yourself, don’t hesitate and book your bus ticket now!

Surrounding Areas of Budapest

Even though Budapest offers a great deal of museums, monuments, and other attractions, let’s not forget about how impressive the villages, towns, castles, and palaces are nearby the city! Szentendre, which is just an hour away, enthralls its visitors with culture and arts. The local open-air ethnographic museum (Skanzen) will introduce you to folk architecture, culture, and society. The beautiful Gödöllő Palace (Grassalkovich-kastély) can also be found near Budapest, which is one of Hungary’s biggest baroque palaces. If you would like to see even more, visit the so-called Danube bend (Dunakanyar) or the Esztergom Basilica.
