Top 10 things to do in Budapest

Coveted by both the East and the West for millenia, Budapest's rich blend of culture, art, and architecture will leave you thoroughly charmed. Here are 10 of best things to do in the united cities of Buda and Pest!

Planning Your Visit

  • When to go?

    Budapest attracts a lot of visitors at the height of summer. However, with its sights spread all over the place, the city absorbs large influxes of tourists better than most. Still, the best time to visit is probably early or late summer when the weather's not too hot to enjoy the thermal baths!

  • How many days?

    Even just seeing the sights could fill a long weekend in the city quite effortlessly. If you want to experience Budapest's best baths, museums, and nightlife then start thinking about at least a week!

  • How to get around?

    Budapest is served by an extensive public transportation network. The Millennium Underground is the second oldest underground railway in the world (after London's Metropolitan Line)! Tickets must be bought before boarding, and are available at metro stops and newsstands. But be warned: a standard single ticket doesn't allow you to change between lines, so ask about special tickets if your journey requires them.

Perfect guide with great sense of humour and very interesting background. It is of paramount importance that the guide himself is a big fan of the topic and the city. In our case it was a perfect match. Budapest is very convenient in terms of commuting by bicycle, there was just one steep ascent, but there is a possibility to rent e-bikes in case you doubt your stamina. I highly recommend to take this tour on your first day in Budapest - that way you get a clear understanding what sites you want to see during your visit no matter how long your stay is.

Impossible to have a bad trip on the Danube in Budapest. Night lighting is spectacular and the water smooth as glass. Couple of comments. Top open air deck didn’t have headphones so there was no audio available. We moved to bottom deck but missed the first part of audio. Beyond that excellent.

Nik is very friendly guy and very knowledgeable in Hungarian history and food culture, the tour was very much enjoyable despite COVID restrictions. It is a great way to tour the beautiful city of Budapest and enjoy delicious authentic food.

I had a wonderful experience because I was the only one on the tour, and my guide Zoltan thoroughly educated me on the history of each region and ensured that I saw everything important and special.

Ja gribat uz klāja ar skatu priekšējā rindā, tad ņemiet šito. Glāze šampaniesa. Nekā labāka neatradīsiet!
