    Budapest Favorites

    When you take a break from Budapest history and architecture you would enjoy meeting the international community at www.DanubeChurch.org on Sunday morning at 10:30. I enjoy the people I meet. Listen to the Bible teaching online and see why this is such a popular fellowship. How does one get there? www.DanubeChurch.org/directions

  • Budapest streets and views

    Budapest Favorites

    This is one of the many things I liked about Budapest - Plenty of places to rest. Scattered around the city are many big and small parks, then there are places like in my photo, where seats are supplied. These just pop up "out of the blue" as we walked the city. I thought it was really nice to be able to sit and relax or eat your lunch beside the...

  • Budapest Bridges (hidek)

    Budapest Favorites

    One good thing when doing a river cruise, is that you get a close up view of the Bridges along the River. Many of them have interesting statues, that are easiest seen from the water. Margaret Bridge, a French Neo-Baroque bridge, was one of them. The building of this bridge began 20 years after the inauguration of the Chain Bridge. It was another...

  • Budapest Spas

    Budapest Favorites

    One of the best, if not the best, massage I have ever received. The rooms are clean and spacious and have a warm feel to them. They have many massages to choose from like chocolate, Tibetan, magic honey, scented oil and many more. I chose the scented oil massage and got to choose the scented oil that I wanted. Prices for the oil massage are...

  • How to survive in Budapest

    Budapest Favorites

    I found walking around Budapest quite easy. I had my FREE TOURIST MAP, but instead of looking at that all the time, I just checked out the BROWN TOURIST SIGNS located on the corners of streets. These were extra good, as they had a drawing, say of a Church, the name of the Church and the direction to walk. Not only that, look on these signposts to...

  • The Matthias Church (Templon)

    Budapest Favorites

    Its official name is the Church of Our Lady but has been popularly named after King Matthias. The church was originally built in 1015 in a Romanesque style. The current building built in the later part of the 14th century is designed in a Gothic style. It was converted to a mosque once the Ottomans captured Hungary and the frescoes that lined it...

  • Budapestians: hospitable and friendly

    Budapest Favorites

    Locals of Budapest can be considered hospitable and friendly in most cases. However, you may experience some language barrier. You may come across many English speaking locals around city center, but if you are a little bit out of the city, communication may become a problem. The language barrier is usually overcome by the hospitable and friendly...

    At the beautiful place in city, across the Heroes Square and at the end of famous Andrassy Avenue is not so beautiful but noticeable grand house with huge flag of Serbia. That is popular "Serbian house" (unofficial name for us tourist from south). In that place now is Embassy of Republic of Serbia. An interesting story is that Serbia received the...

  • Cruise and views of Danube

    Budapest Favorites

    I had many plans for my trip to Budapest. One of my the big items I had planned was to take a river cruise to Bratislava from Budapest. I saw many pictures of the cruise on the internet and thought it looked beautiful. I had also been to Bratislava for a short period three years previously and I wanted to return for a second visit. The weather gods...

  • Budapest Opera

    Budapest Favorites

    Andrassy Ut n. 22. You just cannot miss it. It is one of the most beautiful buildings of Budapest. If not the most beautiful one and one of the most loved by the people of the city. The opera in Budapest is not, as in the UK, an elitist way of entertainment and in fact, that is reflected in the prices, a lot cheaper than in the UK but with the...

  • Gellert Hill (Hegy)

    Budapest Favorites

    I loved my walk up to Gellert Hill, it was a pretty easy climb to the top of Liberation Monument and the Citadel. The views were quite specatular and rewarding after the climb especially since the weather was starting to clear up. From here you have a great view across the Danube with views of all three bridges and even a glimpse of Parliament....

  • Budapest Parliament (Orszaghaz)

    Budapest Favorites

    Plan you day carefully. It's good to be there at 8:30 a.m. and buy the tickets. For EU citizens its free of charge but they still have to go to gate 10 in order to receive the cards. The groups are fully booked in the high season. You cannot buy tickets a day in advance but you can book on the phone – check for this on the hotel reception. The...

  • THE SYNAGOGUE

    Budapest Favorites

    Budapest certainly has an interesting and varied collection of stunning buildings and its Great Synagogue is one that particularly piqued my personal interest. Well - if it's called the "tobacco school" it would, wouldn't it? (for those that know me LOL!) But seriously: This is Europe's largest synagogue, and the second largest in the world...

  • Fishermen Bastion (Halabastya)

    Budapest Favorites

    Halászbástya - The Fishermen's Bastion. This ornate terrace complex (built around 1900) provides a point from which you may enjoy a magnificent view of the Parliament building across the river as well as some refreshments. If you are hungry, there are a number of good restaurants close by.

  • St. Stephen's (Istvan) Basilica

    Budapest Favorites

    This is a picture of the famous crown, the crown with the cross on top not entirely perpendicular, the crown all Hungarians know about and get excited about when they see it. If you pay attention to it, you see it everywhere. So, for example here in Stephen's Basilica. But also in many statues and the real thing that is saved in the Matthew Church.

  • Budapest Taxi

    Budapest Favorites

    I don't expect people in whose country I am visiting, to speak English. So, I have the desk clerk of my hotel write the name of those locations that I wish to visit on the back of a hotel card in the native language. I write the name of that location in English, on the front. You can get around by bus or taxi (or even ask directions on the street)...

  • BESZÉLS MAGYARUL?

    Budapest Favorites

    Hungarian is a notoriously difficult language to learn as it's not similar to any other European tongue. Listening to locals speak or looking at written notices can leave a tourist feeling helpless and baffled. Fortunately, you'll find that many young people have enthusiastically taken to learning English (as they rightly see it as the language of...
