What To Do In Budapest

Hungary has been in my travel bucket list for a long time. Last December, I managed to get a cheap ticket and spent few days in Budapest.

There’s so much to see in Budapest. It’s one of the cheapest European city. You don’t need to spend a Hungarian forint to see the attractions. Check out the attractions and fun things to do in Budapest:

Did you know that there are luggage lockers in Budapest? I found one in the city. It’s very cheap. It may only cost around 300-800 Hungarian forint depending on the number hours you’ll keep your luggage.

During my trip, food will always give me energy to start the day! I tried the Langos from Hazi Palacsinta. It was so good! I like with more cheese on top! So yummy! Definitely, a great food find for me.

I went to Buda Castle to check out the Budapest skyline. It did not disappoint! I fell in love with it immediately. The best time to go there is during the afternoon. Watch out for the sunset. It was really worth the hike!

My own Budapest postcard. Haha!

I walked in the Széchenyi Chain Bridge to be able to go to Buda Castle. It is a suspension bridge that spans Danube River between Buda and Pest. It was breath taking experience to actually walk here. They also have love locks like in Seoul and Paris.

If you’re into museums, make sure you visit Országgyűlési Múzeum. It’s free and you get to take home some memorabilia photos.

Don’t forget your ticket (which also saves your photos)

Make sure you also visit the Girl from Buda which is located at Széchenyi Square.

You can also take some snaps at Parliament. It’s best to see in the morning or afternoon time.

Will I be back in Budapest? Yes! It’s one of the cities I really enjoyed exploring through walking. The architecture amazes me and it’s not too expensive compared to Paris, Oslo or Rome.

Here are some other photos around the Budapest grounds:

Say cheese!
Strike a pose!
I can look at this view in forever!
Love the Hungarian architecture!
Don’t forget the mandatory statue selfie
I should bring a selfie stick next time! Haha!

  1. Budapest is definitely on my list of must-see places. I love all the pics you took, which showcase the city very well. How cool that you could meet up with a friend, too!

  2. There are great deals to Budapest where I live, because it’s relatively close. We’re planning on taking advantage of them at some point, but probably not during the winter – European winters are harsh. How cold was it when you were there?

  3. Sounds like it was a good trip, even if it was a short time. It’s good the lockers aren’t too expensive. And the food looks great too. I really do hope to make it back to Europe in the near future.

  4. I am glad you enjoyed your Budapest journey! I love the place too and I am happy knowing that other people get to experience the place as well. I hope we will meet on the road as well. Happy Travels~

  5. I love traveling on budget. Congratulations on the well done job.
      Budapest is a wonderful city. There is definitely something to be seen in this old town.
    Thanks for the shared tips.

  6. I love it when you post pictures of your travels and especially the foods you try. I hope you have more fun travels in the future.

  7. A really good read! Have not visited Budapest. Have looked at the more popular city breaks. Will definitely add this to my list. Thank you.

  8. Awesome trip to Budapest! I think this is a nice guide for people who would like to go to Budapest. So many beautiful places to explore, it’s definitely worth the trip.

  9. Oh goodness, Budapest is really scenic!The buildings themselves from the castle , the statues ; Hungarian architecture is definitely on top! And again, not to forget the train ride! Such an experience you had!

  10. I never really thought about going to Budapest before, it looks beautiful though. May need to add it to my want to do list.

  11. I envy you and your travels! hahaha The young and single life. Budapest is not exactly in my list, but your photos sure look convincing. 😀 Wish I may…in the future. 😀

  12. I’m actually Hungarian living right next to Budapest, so I’m super happy that you’ve enjoyed your stay. Budapest has indeed a lot to offer, and even if you travel on a budget it’s a great fun to be here. One advice: next time avoid those luggage lockers as far as you can…they aren’t the safest place to store your valuables at.

  13. Budapest is on my travel bucket list! I love the village feel of the towns, and you captured the essence of the city so beautifully. I can’t wait to go!!

  14. Budapest is certainly very beautiful and really special – having a great history and a certain old socialist charm to it. Still, I feel quite uncomfortable there – to much political oppression, terrible attitude towards the refugees and – I’m saying this as a journalist – no freedom of press. I simply cannot ignore that when I’m travelling a country – whether Hungary, Turkey, etc.
