Footpath to the Citadella

by maple_air

Is there a footpath going up the Citadella from the statue of Gellert, or from the cave/chapel in the same area?

Re: Footpath to the Citadella

by jumpingnorman

Hi Maple! I did enjoy walking in Budapest - it was easy for me and I do remember I was able to walk from Gellert to Citadella (there is a pathway which was easy to follow if I remember right)...But before I walked there, I did hear reports saying I should be careful of druggies or "lost souls" along the pathway, but I did not encounter any. I also walked during the day and had a map with me (from the hotel) so I can easily navigate around. The views from the Citadella are awesome...Norman:)

You even get the choice of the gently-inclined zig-zag path or the more energetic straight-up stairs.

Yep, great views! Have a good trip!

Travel Tips for Budapest

by Michael_D

First..get familiar with the city. On this map Buda is on the left,,Pest is on the right. The upper right corner is City Park. When i first arrive in an European city I look at the city center...the central park and the metro(more on that next)and I study the Lonely Planet Guide for that country. A good map and a good guide will save you both the price of the guide and extra money...but more importantly...TIME;-)

Navigating Budapest: Oktagon

by antistar

Oktagon is one of the beating hearts of Pest. It's in a strategic position on the Metro 1 line, and the tram 4/6 line, which is a major artery of the city. It's also on glamorous Andrassy Ut. It's the focal point for a number of classy bars and restaurants, but it's not so touristy as some places. So if you get off the tram or metro here, you'll quickly find yourself someone nice to eat or drink. A good place to start hunting is grassy little Jokai Ter, hidden around the corner from Oktagon about 10 meters away.

Sorozo vs Borozo

by Djinn76

You'll find plenty of them in Hungary. Quite often in a cellar or in the basements, a sorozo is a beer-related place (brasserie ?) while a borozo is indeed a wine bar!
It mainly depends in which mood you are!
However, in such a wine country, I'd only recommend the borozo: you can easily find beer all over the world while unfortunately I couldn't say the same about Hungarian wine...

Packing List

by babi017

Being an airline employee, you learn not to overpack. In the past couple of years I have learned that 2 carryons is plenty. 1 smaller sized rollerbag and a small carryon bag that fits over the pull handle. Only pack the essentials, comfortable walking shoes, travel shoes, and dressy shoes for going out. Clothing: take comfortable clothing. What I learned this year is that they style in Hungary is anything goes.Bring a light jacket for summer nights and something a bit warmer in the fall. Be sure to bring electrical converters for your hairdryer. I used a dig camera on this trip. brought the battery charger and extra batteries just in case.

Ujpest Watertower

This watertower was built in the early 20th century to provide running water for the large northern suburb of Budapest, Ujpest, and is now a symbol of District IV.

Stop 'Víztorony' of bus #104 from 'Ujpest-Kozpont' M3 station (in direction 'Rakospalota, Kossuth utca'.)
