What to do in Budapest? Explore Roman ruins, gaze at neo-Renaissance opulence, and soak up the atmosphere. The cuisine is unique, the nightlife is buzzing, and the thermal baths are an absolute must.
Today, it’s not really a trip to Budapest unless you’ve visited at least one ruin bar. You’ll get the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved drink, meet some locals, and experience a completely different side of a city that prides itself on elegant history and steamy baths.
If you like your nightlife vibrant then you will find plenty of things to do in Budapest at night, from sophisticated cocktail lounges to lively nightclubs, traditional taverns and mellow bars.
Ever since the Romans were here in the 2nd century, Budapest’s thermal waters have been drawing crowds. But things really got going when the Turks hit the town in the 16th century.
If you’re thinking it's just goulash, carp and stew, think again. Budapest and Hungarian cooking has seen a bit of transformation recently.
