Just some spots among the lots of other. Some obvious to visit, some less.
Well known eventplace at the end of Váci walking street. Christmas Market and other happenings take place here. Quite expensive area to eat, but you can find those affordable clothing stores.

Most popular bath in town, it gets crowded as the day goes. Mostly open air, so it has a special atmosphere in wintertime. Easy to get there by historic, yellow metro line 1.

Unique bath! Its Turkish Bath dates back in the medieval times and it has special system traditionally: Tuesday only for women, other weekdays only for men, from 12:45 on Friday mixed for the weekend. The new wing has an open air pool at the rooftop with a very special view. In our young years we often went there to party.

Central Market Hall is a Neo-Romantic-Eclectic style building, although highly touristic, it is popular among inhabitants, too. Ground floor is for the tipical market, upstairs area is for souvenirs, and buffets (you can try Langos here, a bit overpriced, though).

The area is called Palace District. Lot of pubs around, but more calm than the party district, a nice area if you are over the must sees. It is popular among students due to the nearby library.

Nice park, green oasis in the inner city (our children's favorit playground). Charles, the rabbit (well, let's say his current successor) lives here and got a statute, too. He was an Eastern Bunny, left here after the holliday, but found new home here.

On the way to Szentendre, bike road drives you trough this riverside area. Hungarian rowers built the first charnel houses here (first rowing race was at 1842, the winner was Adam Clark, builder of the Chain Bridge). Besides being home of many racing teams, nowadays it is very popular in the season among inner city inhabitants, who often leaves the noisy downtown for the relaxing rverside, where there are a lot of bars providing safety drinks for those hot summer days. Don't miss Csónakház restaurant and beergarden.

The most obvious one-day excursion is to take suburb train, or even better to rent a bike and get there. You will find churches, museums, restaurants with the small town vibe.

Boating lake for the summer season, then Europe's biggest made open air Ice skate rink for the wintertime. Vajdahunyad Castle makes a picturesque backround for both activities.

Probably the best place to try Lángos. Please note, that it is temporary closed in 2020 springtime. Garlic + sour cream + cheese makes the traditional style, but there is a huge variety of possible toppings.

The oldest zoo in the country, openned its gates in 1866. Cleverly planned, beutifully designed with some art nouveau style buildings, such as the Elephant House. Closing of the neighborhood Amusment Park, territory of the zoo was doubled (only a few elements survived, like the roller-coaster, carousel). Monumental new building of Pannon Park is under construction, but the rest of the zoo works properly.

Concert Hall
Concert Hall Boat on the Danube, basis of the hungarian underground scene. Winner of several prizes, such as Lonely Planet World’s 100 Greatest Bar, 2012.
Nice Concert and Event Hall in the 'National Hole In The Ground' and a good open air bar, too. Strange name comes from political reasons: a governmental decision was made and they started building here the new National Theater, but after the elections works stoped and we had the expensive hole for years without any idea what to do with it. Fortunately, best solution was found after all and an underground concert hall was built here with a pool at its top. Originaly, the name of it was Gödör (Hole In The Ground), but later changed to Akvárium.

Order taxi on phone / via an App
Unfortunately, as in many cities, Budapest has tradition on taxi scams. No need to be afraid, though, but to avoid overpaid rides, you better not hop in a cab, but order it online. Worst areas: railway stations, airport (except the official taxi stands, outside of the building), party areas at night.

Public transportation tickets, passes, inspections
We have good public transportation, but inspectors are strict, so please buy one ticket per person from a machine and don't forget to validate (normally when boarding trams, buses, but before going under the surface if taking subway). Keep your validated ticket till you get off / leaving subway zone! Daily pass may worth to buy, but only if planing at least 5 rides a day
