near Budapest

by mescaline66

I'm heading for Budapest on august 28 til september 5. I'm looking for a location near Budapest to visit for 1 day only. Could someone suggests the best deal?

Thanks!

esztergom, as above, is probably the best choice if you can get there. as a second and far more accessible choice consider szentendre, easily reached by train and a worthy visit as well.

You may be able to take a boat trip to Szentendre or further.

Look under 'Pleasure trips by riverboat' and 'pleasure trips by hydrofoil'.

I very much enjoyed my river trip to Szentendre.

Re: near Budapest

A river trip to Szentendre is not as interesting as a trip to Visegrad or Esztergom with the Danube Bend. (The scenic Danube Bend begins above Szentendre.)

Other daytrip options are:
Godollo (Royal Palace)
Eger (town, fortress, wine cellars)
Vac (town)
Rackeve (palace)
Szekesfehervar (town, former royal seat)
Lake Balaton (eg. Tihany abbey)

The most popular are Szentendre, Visegrad and Esztergom. You can actually do these three in one - though tiring - day. Budapest-Szentendre by HEV train (www.bkv.hu/hev), Szentendre-Visegrad by boat (www.mahartpassnave.hu) or bus 880 (www.volanbusz.hu), Visegrad-Esztergom by bus 880, Esztergom-Budapest by train (www.elvira.hu) or bus 800 (www.volanbusz.hu).

while there is no question that szentendre is probably the least compelling, there is plenty to occupy the visitor besides touristic stores. and = the trains run 4-6 an hour and take half the time compared to going further north. for the overseas visitor with limitation of time, it is easier and quicker to get to and a full visit of several hours still leaves time back in budapest to visit other sites.

Re: near Budapest

In my opinion, the natural beauty of the Danube Bend is worth travelling on to the north. Rather reliable, hourly bus/train services with journey times of max. 90 minutes are suitable for a daytrip - though I can't argue that Szentendre is more accessible than Visegrad or Esztergom, owing to its proximity to the capital. So I'd be for visiting the Danube Bend.

Travel Tips for Budapest

Buses, metro, or cabs

by irvbur

Do not assume that veryone speaks English. Have someone at the hotel desk write out your destination(s) in the local language on the back of the hotels card. Write the same thing in English on the front of the card. Use a separate card for each place you want to visit. Show the card to the taxi or bus driver. Make sure you have the name & address of your hotel written in the local language. Keep the cards, they make great momentos. An older gentleman literally dragged his small grandson down the stairs to the metro just to escort us to the proper platform. He then waited until our train came. When I offered him a tip, he shhok his head and said "Think well of my country'. I do.

Hero´s place

by chancay

The Millennial Monument is a semicircular twin colonnade with statues of Hungary's kings and leaders. At its base ride seven bronze horsemen-the Magyar chieftains. In front of the column is the National War Memorial where every visiting foreign dignitary lays a ceremonial wreath. (copied from Budapest sites of interest) Thanks to Levente D to let me know about my mistake here

Church on the Krisztina square

by 1courage

This church wich is located close to the Tunnel of the Castle (on the opposite side to the Chain bridge) was built in "copf" style, wich was the transition between baroque and classical style at the end of the XVIII.th century. The most famous event of the history of this church occured in 1836 when the Count Istvan Széchenyi, constructor of the Chain bridge and founder of the Hungarian Academy of the Sciences, held here his wedding ceremony.
The church had originally one nave. The cross nave vas built in 194: the sanctuary was moved backward on rolls. Also this church recieved a beautiful illumination in 2006.

Easter - Sprinkling

by MedioLatino

The origins of sprinkling are not quite determined, but it surely has to do something with the purity of water, the purification of spring and fertility.

In the past boys and girls wearing folk costumes (which were the clothes for festive days like that one) have been doing this with buckets of water (boys sprinkling, girls getting sprinkled...:).

Now it's more with perfume, sometimes with sparkling water and only in some regions and some very few are still wearing the old costumes for this occasion.

Obviously girls had to change a couple of times during the day, so they tended not to wear their most beautiful and complicated (various petticoats, etc...) folk costumes...:)

The Szent Laszlo Church in Kobanya

by danbp

This beautiful Catholic church stands in the centre of Kobanya (Stone MIne) district of Budapest. No wonder the church is not visited by crowds of tourists: the neighborhood - far away from the main tourist area - holds no other real tourist attractions, except for the Jewish Cemetery - even further from the Downtown.

An American friend of mine - a New Yorker - saw the Empire State Buliding in Budapest. And I saw that too. What happened was that we got off the M2 train at the Ors vezer tere terminal, and walked to Ors vezer tere-Kobanya bus terminal, just south to the metro terminal. From that distance view, the church tower looks really similar to the ESB. :)

Take tram #3 or 62 from Ors vezer tere (M2 terminal) to Szent Laszlo ter or -workdays only- bus #132 express (red numbers) to the same stop.
