Budapest – top 5 things to do with a local’s eye


Budapest, my home city

I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. I know every little corner of it. In the past 3-4 years since I left Hungary, I’ve always been thinking about it with love. This city has taught me how to live in a big city and prepared me for adult life. By this, I mean that when I’ve moved to the USA by myself I already knew how to use public transportation, how to ask for information and how to solve any situation, that’s coming across the street.

Budapest with my eyes

I always loved to explore around in Budapest, there are so many things to see and do. And I never got bored with it… 🙂
2 years ago, my friends from the USA came to Hungary to visit me. (That time I was home for 4 months with my family.) I had to show Budapest and Hungary to people, who have never been not even to Hungary, but to Europe at all. I tried to showed them my city from a perspective, that they wouldn’t get if they go sightseeing with a tourist group.

  • Sightseeing by electric scooter or segway

The best idea in Budapest is to take a tour with an electric scooter. Because there are numerous places to visit, it is taking so long to visit everything and also tiring, I’d rather take a scooter.

  • Turkish baths

My absolute favorite places in Hungary are the Turkish baths. They are so relaxing and when you step out at the end of the day, you feel like a new person.

  • Walking on Margaret Island

Margaret Island is an amazing place to take long walks, and to see one of Budapest’s natural beauties.

  • Shopping on Vaci Street

For shopping purposes, I recommend visiting Vaci street. It’s not only a unique place for shopping but to see historical buildings, squares and you can even walk out to the River Danube.

  • Watch lights at night tim

Budapest is absolutely spectacular at night time. The lights are looking like a sky full of stars. You can sit down on the riverside and admire the lights of this beautiful city.
