Budapest travel tips

1) Take a ride in a retro bus from the Soviet past if you're tired of walking around Budapest

Ruin pubs are stylish venues in abandoned buildings, like Berlin squats. The most famous ruin pubs are Szimpla kert, Ellátó kert, Kuplung, and Csendes. Each ruin pub has its distinct atmosphere and often looks like a warehouse of lost stuff from different eras.

2) If you are going to the Sziget festival, be ready for higher prices in Budapest

Sziget is one of the most popular music festivals in Europe. It takes place in August on the Obuda island in Budapest. At this time, a huge number of tourists come to the city, so it is better to think about your accommodation in advance as the prices will be high.

3) Budapest Card can save you time and money if you want to visit many paid attractions

If you want to get the most out of the city, the Budapest Card might come in handy. It is a tourist card that gives you unlimited use of public transport, access to 30+ attractions in Budapest, and discounts at some restaurants. The card can be bought for any number of days, from 1 to 5. The Budapest Card for 24 hours costs 22 euro.
