Our Guide to Budapest!
Discover Budapest from its most authentic and honest side with us.
Unlike regular travel-guide authors, we’re long-term locals and lovers of Budapest. We want to show YOU Budapest just like we show it to our best friends. Our city is our passion and so is our guidebook. It’s a genuine project of our hearts and so much more than just a quick “overview” of the Hungarian capital.
Over the last years, we’ve seen the changes Budapest has undergone from the front row. We’ve seen the tourist waves getting bigger and bigger with each year, “hotspots” rise and fall, the mindset of the locals changing and Budapest constantly opening up, becoming this booming, vibrant and colourful city it is today. Today, Budapest is often mischaracterized as a mere party city with only cheap booze. Most visitors never make it past that image because they get caught up in the tourist / backpacker / expat bubble and, in doing so, miss out on so many more things the city has to offer.
This is the book where we share all of our knowledge about what Budapest truly has to offer – it’s most authentic spots and experiences.
This guidebook will help you peel back the multiple layers of Budapest one by one. It’ll help you see Budapest the way it’s meant to be seen.
It’s written for conscious travellers and locals. For those who are looking for more than just a glimpse at the main tourist attractions.
For those who want to not only see, but also feel the city and experience how it lives, plays, works, eats, drinks and functions.
It features countless little gems for you to discover while strolling the city streets – be it a hidden courtyard, a secret bar, a colourful garden, an offbeat flea market, or a stunning piece of street art.
We’ve also included day trips and walking routes for perfect days full of new discoveries and created a directory and a map for those moments in which you just need quick info.
Unlike usual tourist guides, this book will open-heartedly encourage you to experience Budapest as if you’d lived here for years. It is a declaration of unconditional love for a city that is constantly evolving, has a thousand faces and never fails to delight and entertain.
