Christmas!

by behappy30

hi!
I'll be in Budapest from dec 5 to dec 8.

I would like to visit some Christmas market and nice Christmas decorations.
Could you please give me information about the best places to go?
And if it's possible any web with this kind of information?

Finally, I'll be going around using public transportation. Do you reccommend me any transport card for better fares? or it's not necessary because I will be able to go to most of the places by foot?

thank you very much!

Hello,

It's worth to visit to Vorosmary square (in the city center), open from 20th november, and daily open from 10AM till 8PM.
I'm not sure when will open the other amrket at Jókai square.
For public transport worth to buy a 3 day tourist ticket around 14-15 EUR. It's easy to get everywhere by public transport.

If you have further questions feel free to ask.

Budapestian, Tamás

It's also worth walking along Andrássy street and the ring road (Szent István körút - Teréz körút - Erzsébet körút) that have beautiful christmas lights all the way.

There is a smaller christmas market also on Kossuth square in front of the parliament from December 5th, daily until 8pm.

I recommend you to buy a 72-hour travelcard (turistajegy). Budapest is a bit large to walk everywhere, so you'll be more comfortable with that pass in your pocket. It costs 3850 HUF.

Travel Tips for Budapest

by flyingkiwi

visit the fantastic Turkish baths that are found all over the city. They are a real must for anyone coming to Budapest. There are so many to choose from, some dating back hundreds of years. The baths are said to contain minerals with healing properties and having spent considerable time in several I could feel the vitality running through my body. The view of the Chain bridge and Parliment buildings lit up at night from across the river. It is a magical view that I shall never forget.

Inside the Saint Anna church

by 1courage

The interiors of the Saint Anna`s church is not at all typical. Instead of the long nave of a typical baroque church you see here a big oval space, in a form of a cross.
The main altar was created by Károly Bebo in the 1770`s. In this case there is no altar painting; you see fabulous marble statues instead. The church, due to the devastation of the earthquake was consacrated only in 1805. In this period also the baroque organ stood here. As I already written in the Things to do tips, the Closter of the Carmelites in the Buda castle was transformed into theatre by Joseph II the austrian emperor. The main altar was transported to Sárospatak, while the organ was brought into this church, where you find it til today. Sure, it was reconstructed several times. First in the XIX. century and than decades after the second world war. In 1945 the choir was hit by a bomb and it`s place remained empty until 1980. Also the huge ceiling-fresco, work of Pál Molnár dates to this period.

use local language where possible.

by djferros

if your English, don't be a typical brit and make no effort to learn some of the language. just "thank you" and "please" will do. It makes a difference.

also, if you already know German, it's a bonus as for some reason here people know german. So use that when English is no good.

Lakópark

by interrailerz

This is a special Hungarian thing. In the 70s many housing estates were built in a modern style, you know, socialist style, etc. They are not too popular today. But many NEW housing estates are being built, that look almost like the old ones, but they are very expensive, and only rich people can live here.

In every town/district etc. you can find a whole bunch of "Wohnheim"s being built
