Even though many claim that there is no such thing as Valentine’s Day in Hungary, it is still a popular day loved and enjoyed by countless people in the country. We have compiled a list of some of the most romantic places in Budapest that you could visit with your significant other – or even alone.
Probably included in every single list that features places worth visiting in Budapest, Margaret Island is deservedly so widely loved by Hungarians and tourists alike. Take a walk with your partner in the Japanese Garden or sit for a while in the Light Garden after the sun has set. Do not forget to check the Music Fountain, either – it is close to Margaret Bridge, so it is right there either when you arrive at or leave the island.
Városliget is the second-biggest park in Budapest – so, it is perfect for a long, romantic walk, holding hands. If you get tired, just sit on a bench from where you can also watch playful dogs chasing balls – or a squirrel. Take some food with you, if you wish, so you can have a Valentine’s Day picnic next to the City Park Lake.
If any or both of you are interested in historical places, this is the perfect place to spend (a part of your) Valentine’s Day. The castle is one of the main cultural and tourist centres of our capital and also the former royal palace. The castle and its surroundings are a must-see, even though you will probably find lots and lots of tourists there, so make sure both of you are okay with crowds.
The Ferris Wheel provides a breathtaking view of the city from the top. If you are not afraid of heights and want to see Budapest the way you have never seen it before (unless you have already been up there, of course), get on Budapest Eye and enjoy the approximately 10-minute ride with your significant other.
This one is for lovers with a sweet tooth – what could be better than trying Budapest’s best doughnuts together while having a heartfelt conversation? Check out this list we compiled of some of the most special doughnut shops in Budapest, and take your pick.
