There are many things that are great in Budapest and I already mentioned few attractions that are „must see“.
Now I’m gonna tell you what are my favorite things in Budapest:
- Gelarto Rosa
Gelarto Rosa is Ice cream shop, but it’s not a normal Ice cream.
It’s Ice cream in the shape of flower. You have to love this.
Rose Ice cream – most beautiful Ice cream to eat.
The shop is situated in city center, near the Szent Istvan basilica. Just look for the queue, there are people always waiting in line for this Ice cream.
They have many great flavours and the Ice cream is very tasty.
It is known as the best Ice cream shop in Budapest.
You shouldn’t miss this when you visit Budapest.
- Ruin Pub
Ruin Pubs are located in formerly abandoned buildings in the city and are very popular in Budapest.
They have Unique decor and fantastic atmosphere.
Having a Beer in Ruin pub is so much different than in some normal bar.
We were in Szimpla Kert – that is the oldest and most famous Ruin pub.
There are many Ruin pubs in Budapest so you should try to visit at least one.
- Kerepesi Cemetery
Cemeteries are not for everybody, but I really like them.
Especially if they are so great and beautiful like Kerepesi.
It’s more like the park or a garden with beautiful monuments.
Great for relaxing walk.
It’s the oldest and most famous cemetery in Hungary.
Many famous hungarians are buried at this cemetery.
It is very big so if you plan to visit you should have a lot of time for it.
It is located near the Keleti railway station.
- Budapest Market Hall
Budapest Market Hall is heaven for shopping.
Market has 3 floors. Fruits, vegetables, dairy products, Hungarian salamis, pickles, fresh fish, Hungarian paprika, wine, souvenirs.
You can buy great funny pickled vegetables, every kind of paprika, great Hungarian sausages. Also t-shirts and other clothes.
The second floor has mainly eateries and souvenirs.
The lángos stand is located on this floor, serving the deep-fried snack lángos. Salty or sweet.
- Margaret Island
Margaret Island includes walkways, medieval ruins, a small zoo, musical fountain, a water tower, swimming pools, a water park, open air theatre and cinema.
It is a great place for a leisurely stroll in fresh air and you should definitely go there by foot (there is a bus that goes through island)
Take half a day or at least a couple of hours to explore and enjoy these beautiful Island.
The 2.5 km long and 500 m wide Margaret Island stretches between Árpád Bridge and Margit Bridge in the middle of the Danube.
Driving through the island is not allowed but you can rent bicycles, roller blades, electric cars and motors there.
