Day Trip to Balaton Lake from Budapest

by burgzvi

We are going to spend a few days in Budapest and would like to make a day trip to Balaton Lake. Is the trip short enough to make it worthwhile? Would it be advisable to rent a car or is bus or train transportation a reasonable alternative? What are the approximate rates for renting a car for a day?

Thanks in advance for your help.

It's a 2.5-3 hour train or bus ride, so you can make it reasonable. You may include a visit to the Tihany abbey and also a lake crossing by ferry or boat and a bath in the foams as some relaxation afterwards. (Or you can do it the other way round too: by the time you get there, it will most probably be hot and you can survive that period in the cool water and as the temperature gets milder, you may head for Tihany. But do consider last train times in that case, especially as Tihany has no railway access!

Budapest streets

The historic center of Pest used to be situated between Lánchíd and Szabadság-híd. This is what we call the city center even today, officially it is the southern part of the 5th district. The main street in the city is the pedestrian street Váci utca. The center is surrounded by the “Small Boulevard” Kiskörút, which consits of Károly körút, Múzeum körút and Vámház körút. Liberty Bridge
From the Pest end of the Margit-híd runs a semicircular avenue, built after Parisian pattern. This is called the “Nagykörút” meaning Grand Boulevard. It reaches the Danube at both ends joining Margit-híd on the north and Petőfi-híd on the south. Grand Boulevard is the overall name of Szt. István-, Teréz-, Erzsébet-, Teréz- anf József-körút.

Hungarian embroidery

by cheesecake17

There are almost no villages in Hungary where there is no embroidery.

Foreign nuns brought the current embroidery stitches of the Western cultures to Hungary and locals enriched them with new stitches and designs called URIHIMZES...

It was a combination of Turkish and Italian renaissance. From the renaissance comes the symmetry, the delicate rythm of floral motifs between the tendrils and the exuberant floral centerpieces. From turkish designs come the assymetrical compositions, crossing lines, the simplystic floral drawings, and the very stylised cypress and flower bushes.

The oldest embroidery that is still to be seen in Hungary is the robe of the first King of Hungary, Stephen I. You can see it in the Hungarian National Museum. The wife of the king helped embroider the rich golden silk robe.

Young girls learned to embroider very early and didn't marry until they had their trousseau..

Prices are cheaper in the country side...and they are more hand made than in town..

Szechenyi Medicinal Bath

by Raimix

After sightseeing in Budapest, it is very nice time to relax physically in medicinal bath. It is popular in Budapest, the visits there even came into the traditions of Budapestians for a long time.

Actually, these baths appeared long time ago in Ancient Greece, Rome. The Szechenyi Medical bath looking very nice both from outside and inside, it was built in early 20th century.

Medical Bath we have been is composed from an open-air swimming pool with warm mineral water, some very different bathhouses (like Turkish bath), some of baths with underwater massages. Better to bring more underwear, towels.

The Libegő (chair-lift)

by 1courage

You can reach the Elisabeth Belvedere from the Normafa, as I have said before, but you can also take the chair lift from the Zugliget. It`s a very pleasant trip, and it`s more comfortable than the other way. You can also combine the two: taking a walk from the Normafa, and than go down by the chair lift. Your choice>;-)
From Zugliget the best and fastest way to get into the city centre, is taking the bus number 128, wich goes directly to the Moscow square.
