The city has undergone several changes in recent years
1) You can bathe in Turkish baths (the Király Bath, the Rudas, and the Veli Bej Spa) enjoying the centuries old architecture but you also have the option to splurge in upscale spas (the Gellért, and the Széchenyi Baths, or in the wide range of spa and wellness hotels (Danubius Health Spa Resort Margitsziget, Royal Spa in the Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal etc.)
2) The Hungarian capital is still an inexpensive city compared to Prague or Vienna. You can still get more for your money than in the majority of Western European cities, especially with the Hungarian forint being so weak. In a recent survey carried out by a travel magazine (www.hoppa.com) Budapest is the cheapest holiday destination in the world.
According to survey you can have a fairly good time in our city from only a budget of cc. 50 EUR/60 USD/40 GBP/day.
3) Budapest has a buzzing nightlife scene. The city is alive with great parties in good pubs, bars, open-air clubs. No wander the city became a hot-spot for stag and hen parties. There are of course places that must be avoided since they target tourists for ripping them off. Most of these infamous clubs have been shut down recently by local authorities.
The ruin bars (romkocsma in Hungarian) are all the rage these days: quaint, neglected buildings, located usually in the historic Jewish quarter (district VII., parts of distr. VIII.) converted to bars and clubs with distinct, retro interior, several bars and dance areas and a peculiar atmosphere.
4) There’s always something going on in here, no matter in which season you come. There are great festivals all round the year (Budapest Spring Festival, the Summer Festival and the CAFE Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival in Autumn are the three biggest cultural events). The Classicist building of the Vigadó on the Pest bank of the Danube.
The city has quite a few concert halls to:
- the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall in the Palace of Arts/MüPa,
- the Liszt Academy,
- the Budapest Music Center,
- Duna Palota in downtown,
- or the Pesti Vigadó on the Danube Promenade.
5) Shops, boutiques, markets abound in Budapest. The several shopping centres (Corvin Plaza, Allee, Arena Plaza, West End City Center, MOM Park, Campona) are great places to shop for designer clothes, electronics, books, jewelry, toiletries, small gifts, food stuff etc.
The inner city (Váci utca and its neighbourhood in V. district, Andrássy út in VI. district) gives home to several stores selling world-famous designer brands: Roberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton, Ermenegildo Zegna, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Escada, Furla etc..
6) There are countless restaurants, bistros, taverns, fast food places, as well as international eateries. Although the quality varies widely, the city has many restaurants where you can enjoy a pleasant meal at a fair price
There are streets and neighbourhoods that specialize in the restaurant and cafe business:
- Liszt Ferenc Square,
- the area of St. Stephen’s Basilica (Sas utca, Hercegprímás utca)
- Gozsdu Court in the Jewish District (Spíler, Spíler Shanghai, 2Spaghi, Blue Bird Cafe)
- Ráday Street (the first Michelin star owner of Budapest, Costes is located here)
Terraced Restaurants in Ráday utca
Restaurants, cafes, pubs stand next to each other with outdoor terraces in the summer season.
These aren’t necessarily the best places to have a great restaurant experience since they’re target mostly tourists with overpriced menus (although there are some inexpensive self-service eateries too.)
If you want to have a first-class meal you’ll find around a dozen of fine dining restaurants in Budapest where Hungarian star chefs prepare exciting menus from fresh, highest-quality ingredients.
