Aquaworld

by VZ-Pam

I saw the new water theme park Aquaworld at the Ramada resort Hotel.
Is it worth a visit since it is out of the city center area ?
Compare to the one at Gellert, is this one better or just similar ?

Re: Aquaworld

by fischert

Hi,
Aquaworld is more a fun park with water slides: http://www.aqua-world.hu/index.php?lang_id=2.
Gellert is a more like a traditional bath: http://www.spasbudapest.com/furdo.php?idx=5&menu=8

If you want to have active fun maybe with kids aquaworld is a better choise (as I heard sometimes it's crowded). If you want to have a calm relaxing break Gellert is a better choice.

Thanks, I came across that web site with their view cam & wondering...
Aquaworld is out of city center, so I don't think I will go but it is good to know !
Thanks again

Re: Aquaworld

True,it's a 40-minute bus ride from Keleti station (route 30) or 15 mins from Ujpest-Kozpont metro M3 terminal (also line 30),add another 15 mins to take metro to/from center.

Re: Aquaworld

by VZ-Pam

Thanks !!
I probably don't go there but was curious since it opened in Dec 2008 as I read.
Looking forward to Budapest .... hopefully no ice & airport strike next week :)

Re: Aquaworld

by fischert

The airport strike "strategy" has changed. Their not striking almost everywhere. They're striking periodically and only few places. So the worst (according to today situation) is that you are not arriving to that terminal you planned. But at least 1 terminal is always open.

Re: Aquaworld

by VZ-Pam

Good to know at least 1 terminal open if they strike.
Do you mean Terminal 1, fischert ? or some place else ?

Re: Aquaworld

by fischert

At this moment T1 is closed T2 A and B is open.
On sunday early morning T1 will reopen.
When will you come exactly?
You can check the news on their site:

I will arrive next Thursday. Wish me luck !

Re: Aquaworld

by fischert

According to fresh weather reports on wednesday a strong cold front is coming with 3-4 cm fresh snow and strong wind! Good luck:-)

Re: Aquaworld

by VZ-Pam

OH boy !
I was thinking of taking the bus to metro from airport @_@
It will be messy i think

Re: Aquaworld

by fischert

The bus stops just in the exit of the airport. changing from bus to metro you have to walk maximum 100 meters. So nothing "dangerous"

Re: Aquaworld

by VZ-Pam

whew !i thought i have to drag thru snow & ice for a long walk

Re: Aquaworld

by danbp

The metro&bus terminal is now under reconstruction, so there might be some mess. However, buses stop a few steps from the metro entrance. The only problem is that there are no escalators, nor elevators. (You might consider taking a train from Terminal 1 to Nyugati palyaudvar - Western Station, costs 300 Fts, runs at least every 30 minutes and it's slightly easier with luggage.)

Re: Aquaworld

by VZ-Pam

Thanks for the advice.
I think I will still try to take the bus & metro because my hotel is a few mins walk from Kalvin Ter Station by M3. Hopefully I remember to validate my ticket at the Metro before I enter :)
My lugguage is not too heavy, hopefully I can manage it. Thank you all .

As you can see from the above photo...

Monuments

by diocletianvs

Budapest is full of monuments. From the monumental ones, celebrating important historic figures, to ones celebrating local poets, musicians and other people.

This monument close to the Parliament building represents Imre Nagy, Prime Minister of Hungary immediately prior to the 1956 uprising. Nagy tried to introduce a more relaxed form of Communism in the country (pulling away from Soviet domination), but was arrested and executed two years later. His grave was left unmarked in an overgrown corner of the main Budapest cemetery. Shortly after the introduction of parliamentary democracy in 1989 his body was exhumed and he became an official national hero.

Thanks to Rea (shirez) for telling me more about this monument.

A little bit of Roman 'Pest'

by leics

There are, of course, the remains of the Roman settlement of Acquincum a little further up the river near Obuda.

But there is a little tiny bit of Roman 'Pest' still to be seen. It was actually a small fort called Contra-Acquincum, and part of its wall and a watchtower base is exposed near to Erzsebet Hid (bridge).

To be honest, there is little enough to seee and what there is has clearly been reconstructed from ruined stonework.But it is there, and reminds one that that there has been a settlement on this spot for millennia.

Walk in front of Belvaros Church, on the Pest side of the bridge, to the small square. The ruins are exposed in the middle, in a sunken area (there's a rather good statue of ?fgihting Romans? nearby.

Belvaros district, Erzsebet Hid.

Gaz vs Natural Water

by metallemon

I found it very difficult to drink natural water at Budapest. They sell mostly gaz waterand in many shop there isn't natural water. So, if you want water without gaz buy the pink bottles! Also you have to know that water is more expensive than beers!!!!
