The old continent, Europe, has many ways to charm digital nomads into trying out their lifestyle in some of the most various cities it has to offer. According to OfficeNeedle, here is how Budapest appeals to those who travel and work remotely at the same time.
Budapest a.k.a. small London
Cold in winter, but warm to hot in summer, Budapest is the country’s capital that takes a breath away by sights such as the Parliament, the Fisherman’s Bastion, and many bridges over the Danube that give us a London-like vibe.
However, this central European city is much cheaper than the British capital. Based on reports from digital nomads, for a month living in Budapest, the cost is around 1,500 dollars. While the local language is Hungarian, locals are also good with English.
While it is a city rich in history, it offers a variety of things to those who want to explore the old, as well as the modern parts of the city. The city is linked by the underground, trams, and buses for easy connections. But the biggest appeal of all is that Budapest lies in Central Europe with easy connections to the rest of the continent with affordable prices.
Cafes and coworking spaces are affordable and numerous where digital nomads can conduct their business and connect to the internet. The average internet speed is great at 40 Mbps and it is easy to connect in public spaces throughout the city, no matter which side of the river Danube you are on – the west bank of Buda or the east bank of Pest.
Museums and galleries offer cultural upbringing while many hot springs promise digital nomads a chance to unwind after a long day of business. In the night, the city buildings are illuminated, presenting a perfect photo opportunity with many instagrammable spots throughout Budapest.
For digital nomads who are also keen on learning about European history, Budapest is a great place to start. From sites connected to World Wars to observing the scenes of life happening on the city streets from tall church domes, this city will charm any European lover.
For those who are keen on visiting Europe but still cannot afford more grandeur cities such as London, Budapest is a great choice. It offers popular options with majestic views, a lot of history and culture, as well as an abundance of spaces where remote work will happen naturally.
