5 things to do in Budapest

 Go to Fisherman’s Bastion (Halászbástya)

The architecture in this place is absolutely beautiful especially when you get to go on one of the tower’s terraces. The panoramic view from up above is stunning and very peaceful. You will be able to look down on the Danube, Margaret Island, Pest and the Gellért Hill. 
 

Enjoy and relax in thermal baths and pool (Széchenyi)

There are a lot of thermal baths and pools in Budapest but from my own experience I can recommend the Széchenyi Thermal Bath. The pools in there has different variation of temperatures; the outdoor pools are 7 to 38 °C (81 to 100 °F) while the indoor pools are about 27 °C (81 °F). They also have saunas, steam rooms and massage services.  

Try Geralto Rosa

I LOVE their ice cream and its creativity of the rose shape . I was literally going back to it everyday when I was in Budapest. Their ice cream was super tasty and there was a decent amount of flavour varieties. I visited a few times in a row and I got the same excellent quality of customer service. The place is located right next to St Stephen’s Basilica and here is their address: Szent Istvan ter 3, Budapest 1051, Hungary.img_4576img_4578img_4574img_4583

Visit the Great Market Hall (Nagyvásárcsarnok)

This place is also known as the Central Market Hall. On the ground floor you will be able to find fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and Hungarian specialities. However, my favourite part was the first floor as it had a lot of eateries that offers warm Hungarian foods. In addition, it was also the perfect place to shop for souvenirs as they are much cheaper than buying it from a souvenir shop. They had key rings, magnets, embroidery, lace, porcelain, crystal vases and so much more.   

St. Stephen’s Basilica (Szent István-bazilika)

This basilica is included in one of the world’s top ten most photographed buildings. Once you stand right in front of it, you’ll definitely know why. The architecture is absolutely amazing! They do organ concerts for reasonable prices and it is also possible to go up the cupola and take in the overview of the whole Budapest. In addition, Stephen’s Square has a lot of cafe and restaurants around.       Lots of love from,
