Budapest is quickly becoming a major European attraction because of its historical background, the several things to do and see in the city, and also because it is an incredible romantic scenario for a trip you won’t forget. Most cities generally become famous for the same old touristic paths that tend to spread through social media. Today we want to let you know the Budapest that is so much more than a visit to the Parliament and the Fisherman’s Bastion, and, furthermore, show you how to explore some of Budapest’s less conventional sights with our off-the-beaten-path guide to the Hungarian capital. Let’s get started!
Budapest is well known for its thermal baths but we always hear the same names. We highly recommend you to take a break at Rudas Baths: modern, clean and comes with a pool terrace with a breathtaking view.
This city park deserves some of your time. Here you can just chill out, have a picnic and marvel at the Vajdahunyad Castle, a beautiful building looking precisely like Dracula’s Romanian residence!
Cruising the Danube
A cruise on the Danube is one of the best experiences you can get in Budapest. Try to choose a guided tour with some hop-off service to explore the green lung of the city: Margaret Island.
Some avoid this place because it not so famous, but, with its Japanese garden, a little forest and several animals to encounter, some hours there can be a complete blast. Rent a rickshaw to make the most of your time here and explore every corner of this relaxing spot.
Exploring nearby areas
In the neighborhood of Budapest you can find some interesting places such as Herend and Lake Balaton. The first one is famous for its ceramics, the second one is the perfect spot for some outdoor experience and to relax while getting lost in nature. To explore these areas the best option is renting a car, because that way you can create your own itinerary, travel at your own pace, and, most of all, enjoy this experience in an independent, convenient and adventurous way.

Budapest has a vast Judaist cultural background and you can have a glimpse of all this at Mazel Tov, a beautiful Jewish restaurant. It is more of a ruin pub, a factory converted into a fantastic building made up of enchanting original decors and yummy food.
