Top 5 Must Do's in Hungary

Edit This

Hungary must do’s can be a very long list. In fact, you can spend a while in Budapest itself and not see or experience everything which needs to be seen or experienced. But if you have limited time and you need to get to know what Hungary is all about, this list can help you.

1. The Libegõ and the Sikló

One is a cable car and one is a train (Libego being the cable car). Yeah, that sounds interesting, you are thinking. Well, it is where the cable car is that makes this thing an amazing journey. It is suspended high over woodlands. The view is incredible. Not only will you be able to have a journey of a lifetime, you are going to be taking some incredible photographs. The Siklo is a charming slow train which goes to the Clark Adam Square from the Royal Castle of Buda. The journey, in this case, is more fun than any destination.

2. A Time Machine

Well, it is not really a time machine, but you will feel like you are back in the 17th century. This is the village of Holloko, a traditional settlement that is preserved entirely as it was in the 17th and the 18th century. You can see how the rural life was before the modern times. This is in the county of Nograd.

3. Visit a Bath House

You have a few choices. You can try the Gellert Bath House, which has a striking resemblance to the Buckingham Palace. You have hot mineral pools, boiling steam sauna rooms and freezing pools. To top it all, you can get a very inexpensive massage. Széchenyi Bathhouse is another one such bath house and, depending on what is closer to you, you can pick one or the other.

4. The Central Market Hall

If you have visited Hungary and have not had a firsthand experience of their cuisine and culture, your trip has been completely wasted. Since you are short of time, the Central Market Hall will get the Hungarian cuisine and culture to you in one place. From embroidery to bakeries, you have everything here. Some beautiful folk arts and craft can be found here. Restaurants that offer all kinds of Hungarian cuisine are also here. The Central Market Hall is about three floors but covers a lot of Hungary for the tourists.

5. Castle District

No cars are allowed here, so you can’t hurry this. But if you can block half a day, some beautiful art and architecture await you. Royal Palace, which houses the Budapest History Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art and the National Gallery, is here. In a very short space and time, you will be able to experience some of the best art and architecture that Hungary has to offer.
