MyCityHighlight is a Swiss company specializing in tourist products and platforms with the promise ‘Sightseeing Like a Local’ , and this year the firm expanded with new cities, including Budapest debuting with its most recent Mobile App, that allows you to discover and explore Budapest free of clichés and like a real local.
Here is an opportunity to represent Budapest in a way that you can feel like a real “magyar”. And how is that possible? Because the App is managed by a city resident – the City Manager -, who shares local knowledge and insights, and whose main goal is to offer the most authentic experience.
Since August the ‘Budapest Travel Guide’ app was available on Android phones but now it is also online in the IOs App Store. The App is totally free and allows you to visit and explore Budapest in a totally different way. You can find different categories of highlights like
