Flights to Budapest

Budapest is, without a doubt, one of the coolest destinations in Europe. A lot of people compare it to Prague, another city that has post-Communism appeal, rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods, trendy lounges housed in derelict buildings, and boutiques that feature cutting-edge fashion and art. As soon as your flight to Budapest touches down, you'll know you've arrived in a city that's constantly evolving from historic destination to hip hangout for the young and stylish.

For anyone with even a passing interest in architecture, the Hungarian capital is a delight, full of beautiful buildings ranging in styles from Baroque to Art Nouveau to neoclassical to super modern. Strolling the banks of the Danube River, with Castle Hill in the distance, you can get a fantastic sense of the history that Budapest has experienced. Its golden age was at the turn of the 20th century, when many of the city’s most gorgeous edifices were constructed.

It’s not all history, though. New neighborhoods that should be on your must-visit list include Józsefváros, the Eighth District, which has been gentrified and become a cultural focal point for the city packed with galleries and restaurants.

Eating in Budapest is an eye-opening yet leisurely experience. Restaurants run the gamut from self-service cafeterias to high-end splurges, and Hungarian food is varied and rich. The city's restaurants have received a growing number of Michelin stars, and new ones are opening all the time. Desserts, particularly the classic Hungarian treats, are world class, and the locals spend plenty of time in cafes, appreciating them with gusto.

The best hotels in Budapest are a varied lot: some small, some big, some pricey, some cheap. Location is important; try to find somewhere close to public transportation if you’re opting to stay outside the city center. A couple of the newest hotels have an art focus, with their own galleries and eye-catching designs. Older places have a more demure look but can be surprisingly luxurious. And hostels, which are plentiful, are generally of a high standard.

In essence, to experience Budapest's emergence as a top world destination is truly a fascinating journey. Come to Budapest and immerse yourself in the up-and-coming.

Visit Szimpla Kért

The “ruin pub” trend in Budapest’s Seventh District—derelict buildings being taken over and reopened as lounges—began with Szimpla, the first to open and still one of the best. It was once a factory, and it’s huge. Join the locals and chill out in the big garden.

Challengeland

For families traveling to Budapest with children, Challengeland makes for a fun day out. Also sometimes referred to as Kalandpálya, it’s essentially a giant zip-line playground in the leafy Buda Hills.

Trek to the top of Castle Hill

Relax in the Széchenyi Medical Baths

Memento Park

A very unique attraction in Budapest, Memento Park is home to around 40 massive discarded statues of Communist leaders such as Stalin, Lenin and Marx, all of which were pulled down and trashed after the fall of Communism. It’s a bizarre yet moving sight, and well worth the slight trek out of the city centre.

Café Kör (Hungarian bistro)

Classic Hungarian food done right is the ethos behind Café Kör, and it’s a good one. Packed every night with locals, the bistro does excellent steak tartare and goose liver pate.

Costes (Modern international)

The Michelin-starred Costes is surprisingly casual – there’s no need for a suit and tie, just a voracious appetite to tuck into the set menus (four, five, six and seven courses). Chef Miguel Rocha Vieira is a master of technique, and sends out adventurous dishes – like pigeon two ways, with beetroot and coffee.

Despite Budapest’s relatively short history, the city boasts a rich and vibrant history reflected in the many cultural attractions for tourists to enjoy. World Heritage sites blend with a multitude of dining and shopping options, as well as extensive hot water baths, to create a city full of welcome surprises. Read more Budapest
