Travel in Budapest

There are so many famous and beautiful spots to visit when you travel to Budapest. Just think about the beautiful building of the Hungarian Parliament or the Buda Castle along the Danube River. Hungary is a Christian country so there are many churches to visit, not to mention the grandiose Saint Stephen Basilica in the center. Besides all the sights, there are interesting and reputable museums in the city, such as the Museum of Fine Arts of The National Gallery.

When you’re walking on the Grand Boulevard, you will feel the special atmosphere of the city. But what is it? This atmosphere carries the modern times of development and the memories of the past as well. What is this strange mix?
When you travel to Budapest, you will hear about the past of the country. After the Second World War, the Soviet Union totally occupied the whole country. Hungary only gained freedom 26 years ago, in 1989.
The country was in a shock for years after the change of the regime. Slowly, but steadily, the real change has started, with all the renovations and changes in people’s mindset. Despite the fact that Budapest has developed so much since then, you’ll still find some features of the old regime – and that is something very interesting to think about when you travel to Budapest.
What are these soviet features? First of all, in the rural areas, you will find the infamous block of flats that were built based on soviet plans. They are meant to provide housing for the rapidly growing society of Budapest. These buildings are not bad or useless – they are just disturbingly colorless. Check out a so-called ‘lakótelep’, the old residential areas as an alternative city tour, when you travel to Budapest.

Design Your Own Hungarian Tote Bag!

Orsolya is a lovely person and we had a great time designing our own tote bags. It made our weekend trip to Budapest even more special and I can only recommend the workshop to anyone who likes to be creative!

What else tell you stories about the past of the country? A very interesting scene, the Ecseri Market. Take your local guide with you and listen to their stories about their childhood memories. They will be drawn back by some objects, toys, or kitchen equipment displayed on the market. It will surely be an astonishing experience. The past of Hungary is included in the modern culture – without the past, everything would be so much different. Therefore, be open when you travel to Budapest, so you can hear all these stories about the past.
