Our next trip is to Budapest, Hungary. Great place with such a vivid vibe. Budapest is the capital of Hungary and one of the biggest cities in the European Union. At the same time, Budapest is an economic, cultural, political, educational, financial, commercial, industrial center.
I do not usually give the name too much attention when it comes to picking a hotel, but Bohem Art Hotel really caught my eye. As soon as you check in at this hotel you will see the elegance, the unique style, comfortable rooms, small to feel at home yet not too small , great staff that work with your needs and requirements. The rooms are fully equipped and the breakfast here is just marvelous. Plus, the hotel is near the Market, the river and the Vaci Street.
The Vajdahunyad Castle is a nice touristic place to start your trip. The castle has an exquisite architecture and it has been well conserved over the years. You can also see the statue of Anonymous if the yard, the author of the well known document Gesta Hungarorum. Park of Statues is an amazing opportunity to enjoy Hungarian culture and history. Here you will be able to see multiple statues, including the Soviet Soldier, which is actually a rebuilt of the first model destroyed during revolution. The Hungarian National Museum is definitely worth checking out since it dates back in 1802 and is full of history. If you want to continue with museums I suggest you visit The Museum of Applied Arts. It’s the third oldest applied arts museum in the world, plus it teaches you how artists have turned small, usual objects into art. You can end your day at the National Theater or at the Lukacs Baths, that are thermal baths, offering medical treatments and spa services. Also, this place is pretty old so I assure you there are some great stuff you can learn from here.
If you want to enjoy a warm, nice, homey atmosphere and a delicious meal, I suggest you check out the Zeller Bistro restaurant, down on Izabella Utca. It’s a unique place, serving Hungarian food. If you are not that adventurous when it comes to food, you can look for a dish that suits you. Having a diversity of dishes , that assures you that you can find something lovely. When you come in , they treat you with bubbly, which I have never seen done before. I had shrimp with risotto and it was delicious.
Budapest is an amazing place if you are looking to learn about new cultures.
