Budapest budget

Budapest has it all. Beautiful sights to see, great food and wine to taste and relaxing spas to chill in. You need at least three days in the city. To save time and energy join the Free Budapest Walking Tours.

Budapest travelogue picture
During your three-day stay, there are at least three things that are recommended for you to do:
First, visit a bath house and make sure you spend enough time with relaxing your muscles and refresh yourself. Covers are about 10 Euros including all facilities but the massages and beauty treatments.
Secondly, try to visit some local markets and look for the strudel stalls and where you can try the typical Hungarian poppy-seed and cabbage strudels. At night check out the ruin pubs of the Jewish Quarter. Enjoy the best Hungarian DJ music, the cheap drinks and the nice crowd. Night life usually starts after 9 p.m. After midnight Hungarians go dancing.
In Budapest most of the must see sights are within walking distance. To make the most out of your three day visit join one of the Free Budapest Walking Tours each day to learn about the history, society, architecture while seeing the hidden sights you could not otherwise do without the tips of an insider and about what the Hungarians are actually like.
First day take the General sightseeing tour, visit the Castle Hill and the inner city of Budapest. Sights of the Castle Hill includes the Royal Palace ( the seat of the Hungarian Kings until the end of the 15th century) the Holy Trinity Square, The Matthias Church and The Fischerman Bastion. Sights of the inner city include: the Danube Promenade, the Cathedral, the Parliament and the Chain Bridge.
Second day try to visit the largest synagogue in Europe called Dohany Synagogue and the other spiritual cornerstones of the Jewish Quarter. If you want to save time and energy, join the Free Jewish Walking Tour.
Third day you may want to visit the Communist sights of Budapest. There are quite a few hidden memorials to see. Just few examples: the last Soviet Heroic memorial of Budapest, the nuclear military bunker, and other symbols of the Soviet friendship. For complete and global description that opens your eyes to the sentiment of the locals join the Free Communist Walk.

Favourite spots:
