5+1 places in Budapest to watch the FIFA World Cup
Even though the Hungarian national team did not make it to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, most of us are following the events, and you might be looking for cool places to watch the matches. A jug of cold beer? Delicious street food? A huge screen? Divany.hu got you covered 😉
The 2018 FIFA World Cup is held in Russia between the 14th of June and the 15th of July. Even if you cannot make it to the actual venue, you can support your favourite team through the screen. Rooting with your friends, in the company of cold beverages is the perfect summer programme 😉
This is a perfect spot to enjoy the romance of the city, the closeness of the Danube and the football matches. They offer cold beverages in recycled cups, without straws – in the name of environmental protection. You can park your car under the bridge at the Palace of Arts, but if you would prefer to drink some beer, you can also go by tram or the suburban railway.
Address: 1095 Budapest, Hajóállomás Street 1
Downtown Football Cinema
The Liberty Square turns into a football cinema for the time of the World Cup. It welcomes guests with a huge screen, family and children’s programmes, quizzes, special guests, table football and e-sport activities.
You will not be short of food and drinks either.
Address: 1054 Budapest, Szabadság tér
The Liberty Bridge gives the pleasantly subdued lights at one of the new but already popular terraces in the city. The location is ideal for spritzers, with a breath-taking panorama, and the standard mega screens during World Cup matches.
Address: 1093 Budapest, Fővám tér 11-12
Grab your favourite pet and head to Anker’t! This is the ideal destination if you would like to taste the city’s best vegan pizza from Vegazzi. If there is only a few of you, you will have to make do with benches, but if there is more than 15 of you, you can swoop down on a comfortable sofa with a separate plasma television for only 2.000 forints.
Address: 1061 Budapest, Paulay Street 33
Kobuci is usually a musical heaven in the summer, but this year it is also open to football fans. You can follow every match in the garden, where there is no entrance fee – you only have to pay for drinks.
Address: 1033 Budapest, Fő Square 1
Spritz Bar Gozsdu
Gozsdu has been one of the most popular outdoor venues in the past years, so it is no surprise that they offer great programmes for the time of the World Cup. For instance, the Spitz Bar redid its terrace and opened up the roof so that football lovers can keep up with the events in the fresh air.
They even have an indoor projector to solve the issue of matches broadcasted at the same time.
Address: 1075 Budapest, Dob Street 16
