Must-do Activities & Things to Do in Budapest
Budapest is a beautiful European city, perfect for students who want to get ruined in the ruin bars and feast on its iconic goulash when they’re hungry the next day. After exploring the city by foot, bike or tram, you can refuel with a hearty, national dish of goulash served in a bread-bowl, or snack on a Kürtőskalács Chimney Cake, a twirly swirly sweet dessert covered in cinnamon, vanilla, cacao or walnut sugar. Wash your worries away in one of the five thermal pools amongst the Roman architecture or remnants of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Budapest has so much to offer…so, are you ready?
Gemma has put together a guide of the Top Things to Do in Budapest for you to plan your travel adventure.
St. Stephen's Basilica
Climb the stairs to the top of the Basilica at sunset and watch the light fall to dusk across Budapest. Admission is free and you can even go in, suitably dressed, to see the incredible architecture inside…standing tall in the centre of Budapest, this attraction that is very hard to miss!
Széchenyi Thermal Bath
Visiting Europe’s largest thermal bath may set you back £20, but it’s worth it – especially considering that some packages even include a free massage. Come summer or winter, the pools, both outdoor and indoor, are always a toasty 27°C. Whether you experience them in the day or enjoy the pool parties at night, you simply cannot miss them! Buy your tickets on the door.
