Essential visits in Budapest

In Europe we have a lot of very interesting cities that are worth visiting, and although everyone has as their first options large capitals such as Madrid, London, Paris or Berlin, the truth is that those that are not so famous also have a lot to offer. . One of them is Budapest, the Hungarian capital with a great variety of places of interest.

Budapest is also one of the European cities with the busiest nightlife and with a lot of young atmosphere, so if you are in that age group, the experience will be much more complete. Take note of the most important places of interest and that you must visit yes or yes during your trip to Budapest:

Bunker Hospital Museum

It is an underground museum that was a hospital bunker during World War II. There are many objects and artifacts from that time, such as medical devices or food boxes. In each room there are mannequins that recreate what life was like there when the bunker was operational, and even at one point during the tour you have the possibility of activating an anti-nuclear alarm. Of course, it has a shop where you can buy some of the most original souvenirs.


It is the symbol of the city, the perfect place to start the route, whatever the route is going to be. It is a 19th century building that houses inside the crown with which each king was crowned, which is guarded by several guardians that you barely see them blink. Today it shelters politicians when they have to decide the most important things in the nation.

Central Market

It was built at the end of the 19th century and is the largest, most famous and most emblematic market in the city. In the basement there are the fish stalls, on the ground floor those of fruits, sweets and sausages, and on the upper floor there are several restaurants to taste the best local products. It is essential to eat a Goulash there, which is a meat stew with vegetables and paprika, a lot of paprika.

Thermal sources

Budapest was built on a fault line from which more than a hundred hot springs emanate, which are visited by thousands of citizens and tourists, especially on weekends. The Szécheny i spa is the one that houses the most spectacular thermal baths, also having 15 indoor pools, Turkish baths, saunas and outdoor pools.

Communist Statues Park

During the communist era, dozens of statues flooded the streets of the city, and when that stage ended, instead of jumping, they all concentrated in a park on the outskirts as a reminder of an important part in the history of the city. There are statues of Lenin, Marx or Engels, military monuments of the Red Army and even a monument in which the names of several European cities are reflected, including some Spanish ones.

Caves of the Píbölgyi

These caves are one of the most spectacular natural places in Budapest, and you can not only do caving in them but you can also take a relaxing thermal bath. They are 120 kilometers long, so it is not a suitable place for the claustrophobic or for those who get overwhelmed if they do not see the sunlight at a great distance.

Cinema studios

Here is Korda Filmpark , film studios that are very important not only in the history of Hungary but also in the whole of Europe. There are several sets of television series and movies that have been recorded there, such as "Hellboy" or "The Borgias." Also, you can see exact reconstructions of a Brooklyn street or a small town in the Italian Renaissance era. A marvel, especially for moviegoers.
