Tips to know when travelling to Budapest

Budapest travel tips

1) Go to a locals’ favourite bathhouse in Budapest

Although Hungary is a member of the European Union, it has its own currency, Hungarian forint. You can get forints in any exchange office, but watch out for the commission, as in some places it can be even more than the amount to be exchanged. It is best to ask first how much you will receive in forints, and then give the money if the rate suits you.

2) Walk down the main avenue of Budapest resembling the Champs Elysees in Paris

Andrassy ut is the main avenue of Budapest, founded in 1870. It is framed by beautiful 19th-century buildings and resembles the Champs Elysees in Paris. Every year at the end of summer, the colourful Budapest Parade is held here.
