Travellers and activities
In the last decade Budapest has transformed from a relatively sleepy central European city into a not-to-be-missed mecca for partygoers from far and wide. The city is cheap, wild and attracts top DJs from around the world. The best of Budapest’s nightlife action is concentrated in the passageways and courtyards of Gozsdu Courtyard, with its myriad bars and clubs. Come late, as they don’t start to fill up until 11. In summer weekends there is something special waiting for you – at luxurious Szechenyi Baths plays host to the so-called Sparty water party, a rave with unlimited alcohol, live DJs, and a wild atmosphere in its vast pool.Budapest for history buffs
The capital of the Austrian-Hungarian empire, no other city is as symbolic of old-world Europe as Budapest. It contains a profusion of immaculately maintained heritage buildings, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites. More than 400,000 Hungarian Jews were lost in the Second World War, and near the Hungarian Parliament building on the east bank of the Danube a trail of iron footwear stands as a monument to the countless Jews executed along this riverbank during the war.
Make sure to bring your swimwear, as Budapest has more thermal water springs than any other capital city in the world!
