You've got a whole day until you're leaving, but you had to check out from the apartment? What about leaving your bags at Koffer and enjoy your time? Pick up your swimming suit and explore Széchenyi Bath, the largest medicinal bath in Europe! The bath is located in the City Park (Városliget), was built in Neo-baroque style. Its water is supplied by two thermal springs, their temperature is 74 °C and 77 °C. If you don't like laying in hot water you can choose the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden instead.This park is the oldest zoo park in Hungary and one of the oldest in the world, opened in 1986. You can get there easily from Paulay Ede street by Line 1 (Budapest Metro), which was the first underground train in Europe, made in 1896. If you prefer walking, you can walk through the Andrássy Avenue.
You can stop at the House of Terror museum, located at Andrássy Avenue 60. It contains exhibits related to the fascist and communist regimes in 20th century Hungary. If you continue walking, you can admire the tarnished buildings of the embassies. The next stop before you get to the City Park is the Heroes' Square, which is one of the majos squares in Budapest, noted for its iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars. It hosts the Museum of Fine Arts and the Műcsarnok. If you don't feel to spend your last day in Budapest at a bath or zoo you can just take a big walk under the trees, feed the ducks or go boating on the Lake. Spring is coming, the sun is shining more and more, so any of this alternatives could be a great way to have a wonderful time in Budapest.
You still have a few hours before setting off to the Airport? Why don’t you just drop off your bags at Koffer Luggage & Chill and have a stroll at the Danube Promenade. In Hungarian it is called Dunakorzó, which extends between the Elizabeth Bridge and the Chain Bridge in the side of Pest. The Promenade gives home to several famous hotels such as the Ritz, the Carlton and the Bristol. Don't miss the chance to sit on the stairs near the river and admire the beautiful panorama of Buda with gorgeous view of the Buda Castle, Gellért Hill and some of the bridges in Budapest. The Promenade is lined with amazing sculptures, such as the 'Kiskirálylány’ (the Little Princess) a young girl sitting on the railings. It was modelled by the daughter of the sculptor, László Márton. Can you also find the Iron Shoes at Danube Bank? Do you know the history behind it? Tell about it with your friends. Budapest is full of history.
We always ask our guests before taking their luggage what they liked or disliked about Budapest. Last Friday, one of our guests gave a rather unusual answer to my usual question. I loved Budapest, because this is a beautiful capital without smog.
On the very day when every fellow citizen were complaining about the quality of the air.
I smiled and asked where she was from. Bejing, the answer came.
Budapest, you are still the best! :)
with the Busójárás festival 23/02/2017-28/03/2017, (Marching of the Busós).
This is a spring and fertility welcoming event, where people wear traditional masks an fur coats. They drink and dance while marching noisily on the streets of Mohács. If it would not be enough to scare winter away the giant bonfire in the center of town surely does the trick. Mohacs is located in Baranya county, around 200 km from Budapest.
