Budapest travel tips

1) Stop by the memorial dedicated to the Jews who lost their lives in the Danube river in Budapest

The summer 360 Bar is open during the warm season. The rooftop venue on Budapest's most glamorous avenue is renowned for its gorgeous views and great cocktails. After 19:00, the entrance costs 3 euro, so stop by before this time to enjoy the sunset in Budapest.

2) Stay at a castle hotel in Budapest if your budget allows

The construction of the St. George Residence hotel began 700 years ago, the hotel was rebuilt many times, and at the end of the 17th century, it was opened under the name of Fortuna Inn. In 1785, the building was reconstructed in the Baroque style, and during the Napoleonic Wars, it was a gathering place for the local intellectuals. With the last renovation, the hotel restored murals and stucco moldings, old tiled stoves, and original decoration elements. In the courtyard of the hotel, there is a huge hundred-year-old chestnut tree.

3) When choosing between Buda and Pest for accommodation in Budapest, mind different atmosphere

If you select between Buda and Pest for your stay, you should know that they used to be two different cities. Thus, they have a very different atmosphere. Buda is a quieter, residential area of the city. Pest is a party zone of the city where ruin pubs are located.
