Best Rated What to Pack in Budapest

    Batteries

    by McPee Written Apr 11, 2004

    Photo Equipment: Make sure you take a tripod for night time shots. As you will gather - I forgot.

    Miscellaneous: If you are the owner of a digital camera, MP3 , Mini Disc etc then it is worth taking spare batteries with you. In some areas they are hard to find, and when you can they are sometimes less than worthwhile local brands. Maybe just my luck.

  • Don't forget the sun cream

    by Andonya Updated Jul 14, 2008

    Luggage and bags: We went to Budapest in June and we knew we would have a sunny weather, but don't forget to take sun cream as you will walk a lot under the sun. Also take some light clothes, but do take respectful clothes (not too short as people there didn't seem to wear very short clothes, though bermuda and skirts are no problem, and also you might visit some religious buildings like Mathias church where they'll have a look at your clothing).

    Pack for a Hungarian Winter

    by illumina Written Jan 17, 2010
    No snow, but look how the fountain has frozen!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Budapest in January was absolutely FREEZING! It was the coldest place we encountered in the trip across the continent, the temperatures were consistently below zero. If you're going to be there during winter, take jumpers, a warm coat, scarf, hat, gloves, the works!

    Swimsuit

    where is my towel?

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Although there are some spas for nudists also, you might need your swimsuit. If you forget it - you CAN buy it in Budapest. Amazing, but true! Sometimes using a swim cap is also obligate.
