Cheap flights to Budapest
Boasting the romance of Paris and the beauty of Prague, but beating them both on price, Budapest should be your next weekend break destination.
When it comes to beauty, there really is nowhere quite like Budapest – the ‘Queen of the Danube’ is right up there with tourist heavyweights Paris, Vienna and Prague. The difference? Well, Budapest has that distinct eastern flavour to it that sets it apart from the competition – the Ottoman baths here are the real thing, don’t you know.
And so is the architecture, which ranges from Baroque and Neoclassical to Art Nouveau and neo-Gothic. Wander the city’s elegant tree-lined boulevards, pop into its many leafy parks or sail down the Danube for mind-blowing photo opportunities few other cities can offer.
Ice Terrace (Jégterasz)
Ice skating rink with retro bleachers right between the Arena Plaza shopping mall and Budapest's splendid, 1925 built racecourse 'Kincsem Park'. Nice family outing before or after a movie/shopping/the races. Rentable skates.
Bródy Sándor u. 13, 1088
If you want to see what off-grid/underground Budapest hospitality was like before the days of multi-lingual menus and wifi everywhere, climb through the maze of interconnected rooms at this subterranean, through-the-looking glass sort of place. They have 80 different types of tea on offer, a miniature bouncing castle for the kids, and you can forget that the 21st century even got started.
It's no secret big budget films are being shot in Budapest, but now an all new form of Escapism has come to town. It's called Filmbuilding, and it puts you in the centre of the action as director and star of your own action flick. Enquiries at email@example.com or look for filmbuilding - one word - on Facebook.
