As Ripost reports, the celebrity always left time for a little relaxation. Among other things, he showed up at the Corvin Cinema, where he watched the Joker movie, frequently turned up at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant in the Castle District, trained in a gym in Ráday Street, and also visited the National Gallop as a farewell. In October, the celebrity said goodbye to the Hungarian capital with a touching video post.

In the freshly published backstage video of his series The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, the actor revealed why Budapest is one of his favourite cities.

“Budapest has great food, great people… It is just brilliant, Hungarians really know how to enlighten buildings. You go across Liberty Bridge which is a very beautiful bridge, one of my favourite bridges in Budapest over the Danube. Hiking up to Gellért Hill is something that everybody has to do when you are coming to Budapest. I like to do it early in the morning when there is no tourist; the sun rises and it shines right down the Danube. It is just a beautiful thing to get to the top of the hill and look down. The city is very famous for its thermal baths, they are all over the city, it is like going back in time. There are a lot of healing properties in the water and you feel much better after you have been in it.”

As the Hungarian news portal reports, the actor even praised Margaret Island and added that Budapest has become one of his favourite cities, where it is absolutely worth travelling to.

  1. It would be interesting to know if, as an openly gay man, he experienced any of the homophobic abuse that unfortunately is quite common in Budapest, or whether his star status shielded him from that unpleasantness.
