Budapest travel tips

1) Get an extraordinary experience in a mobile sauna in Budapest

The M1 line is the oldest of the four lines of the Budapest Metro opened in 1896. Small old wagons operate on this line and stop every half a minute.

2) Nightlife in Budapest starts after midnight

If you plan to dance, drink, and have some fun, head to the ruin pubs and clubs after midnight. The craziest parties start in local venues after 01:00 and last until the morning. Drink responsibly!

3) Relax at the Philosophical garden in Budapest, decorated with eight bronze sculptures

On Gellert Hill, there is a very unusual and peaceful place — the Philosophical Garden. The entrance is free. Eight bronze figures of great thinkers, prophets, and philosophers are installed on the garden's territory: Akhenaten, Abraham, Buddha, Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, Lao Tzu, Francis Diaz, and Darum. It is a great place for a stroll and reflection.
