Blaha Lujza Ter

Favorite thing This square is one of my favorite spots in Budapest and i think its a very pleasant place for tourists.
The square is located between the Keleti train station and the Inner city so its crowded most of the day and active also at the evening.
There are many elegant buildings around it, there are hotels (including Novotel and Mercure), Shops, Bars and more. There is also a small park where you can chill down.
You can get there by bus number 99, M2 or tram 6.

Fondest memory I remember that everytime i walked around the square there were many advertisments glued to the walls of some building, they were especially about big concerts tahat are taking place around Hungary.

Dontown Of Pest

Favorite thing Pest has a pretty big Downtown that in the map seems reasonable to walk around it but in the reality (with all the sights around it) its just not possible.
One of the most central places of pest is the area around Deak ter, you will find there junctions of big boulevards,Stephans basilika, huge hotels (including le meridian), parks and many small pedestrians that lead you to Vaci utca and Vorosmarty ter.

Fondest memory I will remember this plsce for a long time i belive, the first time when i been to Budapest i stayed in one of the cities neighborhood and from there we took a metro to the city center.... when we got out of the station the first building i saw was Le meridian hotel, a very lovely and clean area.

Nyugati ter

Favorite thing This square is one of the most central in Pest. Its also can be the first sight that tourists see when they arrive Budapest from north (Berin, Prague, Bratislava)...
When you will get out of the station you will find a crowded and active street (Terez korut). In the square area you will find a Supermarket, West End shopping center, some old beautiful buildings (you will notice the big commercial signs on them) and many taxi drivers that will take you to any place at very high price... so take it as a last option to get to the center. A better way of getting into the Downtown is by M3 (Just under the train station) that will take you to Deak ter and from there you can change metro line and get to your destination.

Fondest memory This is one of the places that i have been in them the most in my visits to Budapest, it was a starting point to many of my tours.

Busy streets

Favorite thing Budapest is the heart of Hungary, with approximately 2 million people living here. It's by far the largest city in the country with around 20% of the population concentrated here. The streets, particularly of Pest, are bustling with people and action and there's always something interesting to see.

Never mind the graffiti.

Favorite thing Budapest is a very nice, green and pleasant place to walk around.

That's why it is even more a shame that there seems to be graffiti everywhere. I hope the city gets cleaned up one day; it will be even more beuatiful then!

Don't let yourself be scared of by some of these sights though, it is after all a very safe city!

"Paris of Eastern Europe"

Favorite thing Budapest straddles a gentle curve in the Danube.
The beauty of Budapest is what really makes it stand apart. Its broad avenues, lefy parks and harmonious blend of architectural styles has earned it the nickname the " Paris Of Eastern Europe"

Fondest memory The city is well laid-out, rarely confusing, and ideal for walking.

Favorite thing Budapest is a city with an impressive architecture and beautiful bridges, yet, it is not a "tourist" place like Prague for instance.

Fondest memory Walking, walking, feel the athmosphere you have to spend some time for walking

Beautiful City

Favorite thing I enjoy walking in the Budapest centre, looking at buildings and admiring the architecture. But Budapest in condemned to renovation. Although the city centre looks great and you can wander around exploring its treasures, there are some uglier parts of the city that are usually not visited by tourist (especially industrial area). But in those parts its clearly visible, how people live in Budapest. The glamour for tourists is not there. Typical houses look modest, small and are mostly square shaped with one floor only. There is a small green garden around them. Its just the opposite of what you see in this picture!

Fondest memory The Budapest allways gives me this feeling of freedom and mixing cultures. I am also crazy about all those spas - and I had yet begun to explore them! Budapest is a mosaic of history periods, people, nations. I love that cosmopolitan feeling! I even love the language barrier - don't try to guess what they are saying - its impossible!. You can't even guess the words for women or men when heading for the toilet!
