. . Budapest . .

Being Budapestians for 5 days went a little like this…

 

 

 

Basically we drank and ate our way around Budapest, beer was about €2- €3 in most places and if you’re not a beer fan fear not wines were about the same! All in all I spend a little over €200 for the entire trip, not bad at all considering everything we got to do, and we went to restaurants which were similar prices to Ireland, you could do it cheaper if you want!

Food 

Karavan street food market : The Vegan stall at the back is where we got this beaut of a burger

 

 

New York Cafe : One word – Affluence. Our Airbnb host recommended this place and we thought it would be a cute little cafe, turns out we spent €30 for two coffees plate of croissants & three pancakes (american style & fluffy). You pay for the experience, we watched the best little Hungarian band play, a fantastic piano player & oh the interior!!! The ceiling is very grande and feels like you are in the Vatican, or you may feel like you’re in a James Bond film.

 

 

 

 

Street Cakes : You cannot leave Budapest without trying one of the Sweet Chimney cakes, similar to Scrumdiddly‘s but in a cinnamon churro type cake…just go.

Iguanas : 10/10 Nachos, and the Piña Colada oh myyyy..

 

 

 

Bars 

Szimpla Kert Ruin Bars: Lights, beers, wines, art on all the walls, just such a good atmosphere, soooo good.

 

 

360 Bar : Best place to watch the sunset in Budapest, hands down.

 

 

 

 

 

Touristy tingz

Szechenyi Baths : Packed when we went but a must while in Buda, once you find your way out into the outside baths that is, such a maze going through the indoor pools!

 

 

Get E-Bikes, there’s loads of points to hire them from in the touristy areas! Best way to see the city, head towards the centre, we had a pitstop and got Hungarian street food as lunch, also go along the Danube, long stretch of bike lanes to have races.

 

 

 

 

Parliament Building: A must see during the day and night!

Night Boat cruise down the Danube: We booked this at one of the Tourist points down by the river during the day, cheap enough about €15 each and you get welcome drinks!

 

 

 

Heroe’s Square: Head towards here, there’s a huge wooden ‘BUDAPEST’ tourist structure, Museum of fine Arts and Kunstalle are here, a short walk from the Baths!

 

 

 

There’s so much more and I could go on and on like the Budapest History Museum and Buda castle which are a short hill walk, to overlook the whole city, but I’ll leave it here. Hope you enjoy Buda as much as I did!

PS. One last place to relax, chill & have Lidl pastries and wine is the area in front of the Budapest eye, really nice bars & park area.

 

 

Big shout out to the best navigator, photograher, Budgie smuggler and travel mate, Ben Hawley. I’ve more videos on my Budapest moments.
