Awesome 3 days in Budapest itinerary

Awesome 3 days in Budapest itinerary

Today we counted in some time to sleep in a bit. You probably went out a little late last night and just want to chill today. 🙂

Day 3 of this Budapest itinerary starts with a visit to one of the most beautiful ruin pubs in the city. Szimpla Kert is truly stunning and loads of other visitors agree. It can get really crowded here but you just have to see it for yourself.

We started off in the vintage store right next to the bar. This curiosity store sells a lot of cute, decorative items. Also here it gets crowded from time to time which makes moving around a bit difficult. But worth a visit if you like to take a nice souvenir home with you.

The Ruin bar itself is a big complex, with an upstairs, and inside patio, and lots of plants and bright colours everywhere.

When we visited on a Sunday, people were playing music, selling stuff in little stalls, and a  hoards of other tourists were trying to make their way through the place.

A lot of people were having breakfast upstairs. I’m quite sure you had to make reservations for that.

Almost right next to the Ruin bar you find the Street Food Karavan.

Budapest districts – Guide to the best areas of Budapest

Budapest districts - Guide to the best areas of Budapest

Budapest is one of the most popular cities to visit in Hungary and it has 23 districts, but not all of these will be equally attractive to tourists or travelers. So let’s sort that out in a minute.

The counting of the different areas started in the most historic part of the city. Then the other quarters have gotten their number in a (more or less) clockwise pattern as you can see in the illustration.

The further you move away from the heart of the city, the higher the numbers will be.

So that’s something you can use! If someone invites you for a drink in district 23, you’re going to be quite far away from the city center!

The most important touristic areas are district 1, 5, 6, and 7.

We’ll discuss these interesting neighbourhoods first.

If you want to know a little more about the other regions, we talk about those a bit further down the road!
