Boeda, Pest, Sziget, the Chain Bridge, the beautiful bathhouses. Budapest is highly recommended to go and has its charms every season. We'll take you on our trip through Budapest last summer.
In Hungary they do not pay with the euro, that is a setback! That means arithmetic, arithmetic and arithmetic. Handy to make a short list so that the recalculation goes faster. In Hungary they pay with the HUF (also called Hungarian Forint).
rt The metro is the means of transport in Budapest. It's good to do and ideal once you know it. The network has four lines (red blue, green, yellow) each going out a side within the city. All metro lines meet at Deák Ferenc Ter metro station, the centre of the city. Tickets can be purchased from vending machines at the stations. Unfortunately these are vague for tourists, especially at the beginning of the trip. It is recommended to buy tickets for several days. These are easy to purchase in advance via various sites or at the airport.
The taxi is also fine in Budapest. Order it by phone and don't keep it on the street, it's much more expensive. Hotels often have a deal with a taxi company and can also reserve them for you.
Transport of the airport which is a stress factor at the beginning of the holiday. There are two buses (100E, 200E). The tickets that had to be purchased for this were not clear. Ask for help! Tickets are for sale at vending machines (take a look at the side of the device for which bus it is, saves again!) or they are for sale with the bus drivers. Then cram in the bus and stand long. Don't you want this puzzle? Taxis are also located at the airport and shuttle vans drive to various hotels.
Food and Dri
nk Budapest's tap water is not recommended to drink. Bottles of water are for sale in small supermarkets. Remember well, blue is sparkling and red is flat w
ater! Budapest's cuisine consists mainly of Hungarian cuisine and Italian cuisine. Hungarians are real meat eaters and this is also prominent on the menus. Hungary is also known for its soups. Mainly the goulash soup. Recommended to order! In addition, the Hungarians have lunch large with sometimes several courses. The terraces are divided into smoke and not smoke sections. The tip is often already included in restaurants and bars at the price. The Hungarians are benevolent to help and can point out the nicest and hidden places.
In Hungary they have a traditional sweet delicacy called Kürtöskalács. In other words, chimney cake. This involves a sweet dough in a form of a chimney, sprinkled with sugar and filled with even more sweetness. There are many cheap bars that offer this famous delicacy. Still, it's better at a larger tent, where they're made fresh. Beware of wasps, because they love it too!
On the Danube and on the quay are several restaurants located where you can enjoy yourself and more luxuriously. The prices of these restaurants are also slightly higher than those in the city centre. Good food and a view over the water, the chain bridge, the castle and the statue of liberty (well in the far, haha) you get in return. Restaurants and bars worth while
What a fine surprise this was! Hidden restaurant near the Opera. The service was nice and tidy, although we had to wait a while before the food was finally on the table. Fortunately, we got an apology for that right away. This wasn't supposed to be the fun for us either. The atmosphere was nice, in a cosy street with several restaurants. The walls were pink with small, cheerful tiles and the decoration of the terrace was very nice. The food was delicious and for a good low price. The pasta salmon and the chicken burger are top riders (although the plate of pasta was a bit haha)

Jamie Oliver Pizze
ria This Jamie restaurant is a bit hidden in a courtyard full of nice toes. Was a while to look, but really the trouble of truth. Nice dressed and good pizzas (we're not used to Jamie either!). Reservations are recommended and can easily be done through the site.

Wasabi Extra Sushi & Wok
Delicious sushi and wok with an all you can eat concept. They work with an assembly line, but you can also order via an Ipad. Outside they have a terrace with swings like chairs!! It's hard to eat?
Hercegprímás Utca 4
Winestone is located in the middle of the center. Delicious wines and what a good service! Nice for a drink or to catch up. The staff have a lot of understanding about the wines and snacks they serve. In addition, this tent has a wine shop, where you can purchase your favourite wine right away. Above the Winestone is the Mercure hotel.

Akvárium Klub W
ow! How wonderful it is to come here in the sun at the coming of shopping or sightseeing. Cocktails, delicious street food, live music and around the corner at Deák Ferenc Ter metro station. The large terrace is on the steps of a staircase. This hip tent is called the Aquarium, because inside the ceiling is the bottom of a watertje. The water is very clear, giving it light inside as if you are in an aquarium. In addition, they have regular workshops in the summer and it is cheerful.
Erzsébet tér 12
aIn budapest's warm summers, nothing is so good than an ice cream! This ice cream shop is one for which you really have to queue. Gelarto Rosa serves delicious ice cream, in the form of a rose! A true work of art on a horn with a high instagram content!
Szent Istvan ter 3
co In Hungary, tobacco is only sold in special tobacco shops (these are called nemzeti dohánybolt). They are small unobtrusive shops with milk glass, so you can't see the smoke from the outside. So you're looking for smoke! Under the age of 18, you can't go in there.
Got excited about Budapest? Nice! This city is ideal for a city trip (or longer) with friends or partner. Budapest is a pearl that is slowly discovered by Western Europe. Every season is wonderful in Budapest and there is plenty to do. A tourist-friendly city with lots of Possibilities.
