“Ask pretty much anyone what they recommend you do in Budapest and they’ll likely suggest a night out at Szimpla Kert. The iconic party place is undoubtedly the city’s most famous nightspot, and has inspired wave after wave of “ruin pubs” that have popped up in the years since it opened. We sat down with one of the owners, Ábel Zsendovits, to talk about the role Szimpla has played in Budapest becoming one of Europe’s top tourist destinations, particularly among young people. While you might think he’s too busy running his Szimpla empire to have a lemonade with us, he was generous with his time. Location: H-1075 Budapest, Kazinczy u. 14 ”

Opera House
“The opera house in Budapest stands as one of the most beautiful Neo-Renaissance buildings in Europe.. Designed by Miklós Ybl, one of Europe's leading architects in the mid to late 19th century, the Budapest Opera House quickly became one of the most prestigious musical institutions in Europe. Many important artists performed here, including Gustav Mahler, who was also the director for three seasons. The Budapest Opera House is considered to be amongst the best opera houses in the world in terms of its acoustics, and has an auditorium that seats 1200 people. It is horseshoe-shaped and, according to measurements done by a group of international engineers, has the third best acoustics amongst similar European venues (after the Scala in Milan and the Paris Opera House). ”

“I am recommending this spot only because it is quite an important party scene in Budapest with plenty of bars, restaurants and night clubs. However it is also very touristy so am trying to avoid it most of the time myself. But you can have a beer here just to taste the atmosphere - and if you like it, go for it!”

“The mile-long Király Street is flourishing and buzzing with activity. This street is of historical significance and is perpendicular to Kazinczy Street. It's also one of the entrances to the passage known as Gozsdu Udvar, which feels like an entirely separate hub of the city. In addition to the shops, hostels, restaurants, bars, bistros, and teahouses, the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music also help to shape the street's cultural character. In the winter months, Király Street is defined by the Christmas lights and the smell of roasted chestnuts. From spring, it's the territory of tourists and locals in search of fun spots for a day or night out.”

“From panoramic igloos to glass-fronted terraces augmenting Art Nouveau hotels, Budapest has any number of terraces to sip mulled wine in the warmth of indoors while watching the snow fall and Christmas lights tinkle. Some are seasonal additions or conversions to popular alfresco spots in summer, others imaginative creations that have only been unveiled this year. Those operating as extensions to top-notch restaurants can offer fine fare to go with your glass of red, a surprisingly affordable experience particularly if you factor in lunchtime deals as well. Live music is an occasional feature, DJs too.”
