Although the title mentions the football fans who will visit the Hungarian capital to watch the games of the European Football Championship, the video is for everyone who needs some ideas about what to do in Budapest.
The UEFA EURO 2020, which was postponed to be held this year due to the pandemic, has had its first football matches on Friday. The first day of the tournament saw Turkey taking on the World Cup-winning national team of Italy.
3 games of the group stage and one in the round of sixteen will be held in the Puskás Arena of Budapest,
named after the best Hungarian football player known all over the world.
Hungary will have its first game of the group stage next Tuesday against the very strong Portugal team, who were the champions of the tournament in 2016, with the same Cristiano Ronaldo in its ranks who is today the leader and the captain of his national team.
As one of the most popular sports around the world, football motivates and moves many people to travel around the world to see their favourites play live. This is especially true if we talk about the three games held in Puskás Arena since there is no limiting covid measure regarding the number of supporters that can be admitted. The only limit is the maximum capacity of the stadium.
While travelling for football is a great idea, it also gives you the possibility to discover the city you will stay in. Exactly for this reason, Budapest Brand Zrt. shot a short video for all the football fans who will spend one or two days in the Hungarian capital to watch their national team play.
The 2-minute-long video offers a wide variety of programmes and plans to do either before or after the games, discovering the iconic spots of the city.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Budapest has seen a very significant drop in terms of the number of tourists walking on its streets. The tournament will be a wonderful opportunity to discover the beautiful city of Budapest for all those who have already bought their tickets. In the case you missed out on that, this content will still make you want to book a flight right away.
According to turizmus.com, this short video was created exactly for the arriving football fans, presenting to them all the wonders and exciting spots of the city, from the Széchenyi Thermal Baths to the bank of the Danube. The presentation especially focuses on locations that are right in the vicinity of the stadium, the fan zone, and some of the hotels, such as the Vajdahunyad Castle, Heroes’ Square, the Fisherman’s Bastion, the Chain Bridge, or the Liberty Bridge.
Apart from a nice video to make you want to visit Budapest,
it is also a practical guide calling fans’ attention to all the security measures
that need to be respected inside and outside of the stadium, including some rules related to the games and the use of masks on public transport.
