Visiting Budapest.

by Jayarep

Hi!While we are in Budapest,would like to take trips of short durations outside Budapest.
I have in the Budapest forum read about trips to Nagymaros-Visegrad or Zebegeny.As I understand this would be train journey from Nuygati.What are these places famous for,and how long would the journey take each way.
Also I have read about a boat excursion to the Danube Bend.How long is this excursion and where do we get the boat from.
Other than these what places can you recommend.
Will appreciate your suggestions.
Many thanks,
Jayarep.

Nagymaros is a scenic village in the Danube Bend. It's worth a 30-minute walk around the village and a coffee/beer at the ferry. Zebegeny is similar too, it also offers a memorial museum of Istvan Szonyi, a 20th century Hungarian painter and a nautical museum specialising mainly on Danuvian shipping. Both villages are excellent start/endpoints for hiking.
Visegrad offers a lot more: ruins of a rennaisance castle of King Matthias, Solomon's Tower (Salamon-torony), the Fortress (Fellegvar) and toboggan track. Plus numerous restaurants, hotels and souvenir shops. And a gorgeous view of the whole Danube Bend from the Fellegvar!

The journey to Zebegeny takes 50 minutes by skip-stop (zonazo) and 65 minutes by local (szemely) trains. For Nagymaros-Visegrad, count with 10 minutes less in both cases. All trains leave from Budapest-Nyugati (metro M3 Nyugati palyaudvar station).

Boat excursions are organised by Mahart-Passnave: www.mahartpassnave.hu
Their central pier is at Vigado ter (metro M1 Vorosmarty ter) in the Inner City (downtown Pest).

I also recommend a one-hour stopover in Vac, which is quite easy to make as trains between Budapest and Vac run on a 30-minute headline. Budapest-Vac-Szob trains also run every 30-60 minutes. The ferry from Nagymaros to Visegrad offers good train connections.

You may also include 2-3 hours in Szentendre, maybe with a visit to the Open Air Folk Museum (Skanzen), although the latter would take up your whole time in Szentendre. From Szentendre you may continue either by boat or by bus 880 to Visegrad. (The bus runs on a 60-minute headline.)

Travel Tips for Budapest

Money Exchange

by Gypsystravels

There are many exchange booths througout the city and I would recommend that if you do need to exchange money to use the exchange booths in the city rather than the ones in the airport. The exchange rate is so much better.

This exchange booth is conveniently located at Mihaly Vorosmarty Square.

Navigating Budapest: Kalvin Ter

by antistar

On the southern end of District V you'll find the up and coming Kalvin square. Once the renovations have been completed, the square will be one of the best in Budapest. Right now it should be on your radar for a number of great bars and restaurants, as well as being the starting point for the famous Raday Utca, a pleasant pedestrianised street filled with bars, restaurants and boutique shops. You've also got the National History museum right next door.

Cheers!

Hungarians like to drink, and they can probably drink more than you. Be careful with the palinka, but don't forget to toast as often as you can.

In Hungarian you say:

Egészségedre!

Phonetically that is like saying: eggy-shay-geh-dre.

Be careful to pronounce the second part carefully. Saying "sheh" instead of "shay" apparently means that you are referring impolitely to a part of the body not normally mentioned during every day conversation.

Swimming pools on the Margareth island

by 1courage

If you are not into thermal water and medicinal Spa`s, (only in summertime) you can select the normal outdoor swimming pools. Budapest has really plenty of them. The most famous ones can be found on the Margareth island. On my photos you see images about the Palatinus pool, but also the Dagály nearby is worth a visit/swimming.
You can reach this swimming pool easily: just take the Bus number 26 at the nyugati Railway station and get off the homonimous stop. Of course you can go there by foot following the line of this bus on the island.

Note: currently in the northern part of Budapest is beeing constructed the biggest swimming pool & aquapark in Central Europe. It will be really impressive. As soon as it will be finished I add a tip about it. Well, just bring the usual ones: swimming trunks, towels, sun cream and a little money for the ice cream, beer, hot dog...whatever-that`s just enough:)

Károlyi Mihály utca

by mikey_e

I didn't know what to call this tip, in particular because it was, obviously, an "off the beaten track" type of tip, but also because I have no idea what to call the building in the pictures. In any case, there is a neat little monument to those who died in the First World War - which is a bit of an oddity, since the War and its aftermath are quite painful for Hungarians. The standard dialogue in the country is that Hungary was dragged into the war by the Dual Monarchy (Austria retained primacy in foreign and military affairs) and then, after the war, was punished by the reallocation of half its lands and a third of its population to its neighbours. Nevertheless, I think that the memorial is dedicated more to the dead than the goals of the war - something I attribute to the presence of the 1956 rebels' flag on the door of the building. The building is at the intersection of Károlyi Mihály and Irányi utcák.
