What is your best overall travel tip for Budapest?

Drink all the froccs! It's wine topped off with sparkling water. It is served everywhere - from the ever popular ruin bars to Cafe Zhivago (a local watering hole) - and the drink has historical significance to the Hungarians.

Sandra L's Travel Tips for Budapest

What is your best overall travel tip for Budapest?

In my research I found out that you can go cave exploring in the hills where the natural springs stem from! It was so thrilling to squeeze under and between ancient rocks once full of the healing waters that the city embraces in their bath houses. Three hours of spelunking and then a long soak in the thermal baths - it was another perfect day in Budapest!

What is your best overall travel tip for Budapest?

You MUST experience the Bath culture. For westerners it can be weird at first, but we swear - it’s great! We love Széchenyi for its large outdoor pools and cool local vibe and Gellert for the Baroque beauty and classy old world feeling it evokes. And at both you can drink!

If you can, try to go to a few different baths in the city. They are each so different and by visiting more than one, you can really get a sense of the bath culture (not to mention much-needed travel relaxation).

If you’re traveling in cold months, make sure to layer. You may have to open your coat for the right shot or even lose a layer to make sure you can get close enough to the other person(s) in the photo.

ALEEZA's Travel Tips for Budapest

What is your best overall travel tip for Budapest?

You have to have dinner at Menza. They have wonderful traditional hungarian food in a trendy eatery. It's a lively, bustling restaurant. If it is your birthday, this is where you want to have your birthday dinner. They turn off all the lights and play a fun birthday song and everyone claps for you. Below are some recommendations from Dana. Her recommendations on food and night life were spot on. Mazel Tov is another fun restaurant to visit. The restaurant is beautiful. It's like an instagrammers dream. It's like a light and airy garden. They have wonderful cocktails and food. Szimpla Kert and Anker't are two ruin bars we loved in Budapest. A ruin bar is a bar in an abandoned building. We loved wandering through all the rooms and looking at the decor. Both places are great places to grab a drink at night.
