There is an intresting article in the New York Times this week:

Other than that, I would walk down Andrassy ut. Many boutiques there.

For a list of boutiques on Andrassy u., I went to Wikipedia.

"The avenue is also home to many upscale boutiques including Louis Vuitton, Ermenegildo Zegna, Vertu, Burberry, Gucci, and Roberto Cavalli".

Travel Tips for Budapest

Vorosmarty Ter

by MelanieBee

Vorosmarty Ter is one of the central meeting points in Budapest and is situated at the northern end of Vaci street. With Deak Ferenc metro station, St Stephen's Basilica, Quayside restaurants and the Pest concert hall and all the Vaci Street shops just a few minutes walk away, it is a great place to wait for friends, or sit and watch the world go by.

Cruise On The Danube

by edvin_br

If you will feel that you need to move away from the busy center of Budapest you can take a relaxing trip along the Danube. The boats will take you to some amazing places along the megical river and you can see some views that arent available in the city.

Jewish District in vth District

by budapest8

The Jewish district in Pest has a long and ultimately tragic history. It first sprang up in medieval times just beyond the Pest city wall (which stood where today's Inner Ring boulevard stands), because Jews were forbidden to live inside the town. Later, Pest expanded beyond its walls, and the Jewish district actually became one of the city's more centrally located neighborhoods. The huge synagogues that you can see may give some idea of the area's former vitality. Under German occupation in World War II, the district became a walled ghetto, with 220,000 Jews crowded inside; almost half perished during the war. Sadly, the neighborhood is now more or less in a state of decay; buildings are crumbling, garbage is strewn about, and graffiti covers the walls. Nevertheless, this compact little neighborhood is filled with evocative sights.

The Dohány Synagogue
This striking Byzantine building, Europe's largest synagogue and the world's second-largest, was built in 1859 and is still used by Budapest's Neolog (Conservative) Jewish community. The synagogue is newly cleaned and restored.
The small, freestanding brick wall inside the courtyard, to the left of the synagogue's entrance, is a piece of the original:
Rumbach Synagogue
This handsome but decrepit yellow-and-rust-colored building is, in its own way, as impressive as the Dohány Synagogue. Built in 1872 by the Vienna architect Otto Wagner, this Orthodox synagogue is no longer in use. You can't go inside, but the facade itself is worth seeing.
Continue down Rumbach utca and make a left on Madách út to look at the giant archway of:
Madách tér
In the 1930s a plan was drawn up for the creation of a great boulevard similar in form and style to Andrássy út. World War II put an end to the ambitious project, and the grand Madách tér leads only to itself now. Looking through the arch on a clear day, you get an unusual view of Gellért Hill, crowned by the Liberation Monument. Several new art galleries can be found on Rumbach utca and Madách út.

Bikers guide to Budapest

by MedioLatino

Budapest might not be the ideal city for bikers, but it certenly is worth to use one to see a lot more of the city.

Especially in summer, bikes can prove very useful. The transportation is very good, but with that you miss a lot of details. And since Budapest is a big city, walking is a good choice but not for all the destinations...:)

There are bikeroads in Budapest, but not everywhere...but you have to be really carful even on this sort of roads, because car drivers often "forget to think" about bikers...

Lots of nightspots are easily accesble with bikes as well, so this might also be a good choice for party people :)

And if you are here and need a bike-partner, just drop me a note! :) Rent a bike here if you don't have yours with you.

High on Gellert Hill. Visible to all the City

by dabidc

The hill is crowned with the Liberty Statue is a recognition to the period after Word War 2 .

All the paths lead to the Statue which is flanked by two warriors from the same period. The three figures stand out well against a clear blue sky.

At the time of this visit there were several schools visiting the location.

The wall to the east gives some fine views over the river to Pest. the Duna river is busy with the passenger boats but many barges are pushed along the river heading to the Black Sea maybe or to the interior of the Continent.
