What Budapest can offer and more

Dining, clubbing and visiting the city
You can read a short summarization about the highlights of some districts areas.
The 5th district is the heart of the city, here you can find the best places to dine, or if you look for upper level clubbing with the locals that's the place you should go. For that I can recommend Yellow or BOB. The Parliament and the St. Stephens also located in this area, both can be reached with a leisurely walk from the other's. Speaking of which, I recommend to take a glass of wine in Divino or at Platz, these two places are situated just right front of the Basilica, and overly popular among the locals as well.

Baths of Budapest
The city isn't named by accident to the "City of Spas", there are plenty of them all around, this little description will help you to decide, or simply try all.
Budapest is famous of its baths, what are really popular among the locals as well. I'd like to highlight two of it. Not depending on the weather or the season, if you take a longer trip, you should include one if these two baths, as they can be a once in a lifetime authentic experience. 1. Széchenyi Bath Doubtless that this bath is the most famous one, with it's huge open air hot pool. It's recommended to visit during the day for families or couples. However, every Saturday AFTER 10:30 PM until 3 AM, there is a fabulous event, called Sparty. This is a fun, night out activity for adults who are at least 18, or older. Hours: Everyday 6 AM - 10 PM 2. Rudas Bath The bath is situated in the Buda side, right on the bank of the river. You can't only enjoy the bath, but the stunning view of the city as well.

Gastronomy of Hungary
I listed some Hungarian food and places you should definitely try during your stay in Hungary. The Hungarian kitchen offers many taste options trough the salty Goulash and Chicken Paprikash with dumplings to the sweet like Chimney Cake and many yummy desserts.
Let's see What you shouldn't miss : 1. Starters - Cold fruit soup A popular choice during the summer, surprisingly here, people consume this soup strictly NOT as a dessert, but as. starter before the min dish, what can sound weird a bit at first, but you'll not regret to try it out. Usually made of sour cherries, but can be found in a lot of variations. like raspberry etc.. -"Jókai" bean soup A very rich soup made out of beans as the name states as well, enriched with smoked pork hock pieces and noodles. -Hungarian fish soup This this is very characteristic dish, it's flavored with hot paprika, it's a bit spicy because of that. Always made out of locally available freshwater fish selection, some places only put the meat of the fish, but it's not unusually to put the inners of the it as well. 2. Mains - Chicken paprikash This dish can work for dinner or lunch, and very popular in the country. Usually made out of chicken breast or leg, what's sitting in a thick stew, what's made of vegetables and sour cream. Served with home made dumplings. Locals usually order a cucumber salad on the side as well. It's a thin sliced cucumber with a sweet vinegar dressing, topped with sour dream, and of course! some paprika powder. - Stuffed cabbage Made a roll of the leaves of the cabbage , stuffed with minced meat and rice, topped with what else, then sour cream. - Beef goulash Needless to explain, this hearty soup, full of vegetables and beef, usually eaten with a freshly baked piece of bread, one of the most famous dish of Hungary. 3. Desserts - Hungarian sponge cake ' Somlói' chicken paprikash,goulasch,lángos, pörkölt (stew),stuffed cabagge,cold fruit soup, dobos cake and you shouldn't miss the chimney cake as well. - Dobos Cake Sponge cake layered with chocolate paste and glazed with caramel and nuts. - Chimney cake "Kürtös kalács" Made from sweet, yeast dough, of which a strip is spun and then wrapped around a truncated cone–shaped baking spit baked over an open fire, and rolled in granulated sugar, walnut, coconut or coca powder. Best to eat when it's fresh, and warm. -Flódni Traditional Hungarian jewish cake with four different layers which are poppy seed, walnut, apple, and plum jam. -Floating island " Madártej " A dessert made of milk custard with eggwhite dumplings floating on top. 4. Snacks - Lángos - (prounanced " Lángosh ") Deep fried salty dough, with several topping options, the most traditional and basic is the cheese and sour cream one. -Chesse scone " Sajtos Pogácsa " Fluffy, and light pastry with cheese on top, far the most popular savory snack. I advise to take the "mini" version, as they are more tasty and not dry at all as their bigger brothers. - Pick salami or winter salami Traditional product made of a mixture of lean pork and fatty pork belly, and spiced accordingly to a secret recipe. The mixture is filled in casings, followed by a cold smoking curing, a drying phase. Finally the salami becomes covered with noble mold. 5. Beverages -Pálinka The national drink of Hungary.Kind of strong fruit bandy, the real drink need to be at 40% of alcohol, if you would not like to have such a strong taste, try the one with honey. Cab de drinker before or after the meal. -Unicum A bitter herbal liqueur, can be consumed as digestif and apéritif, breaded by the famous Zwack family. -Hungarian wine The country has several good wine regions, the most famous is Tokaj. They produce the sweet dessert wine as well, what can be a good ending after a good lunch or dinner.

Never take freelancer taxi
If you decide to take a taxi during your stay, I strongly advise for you, to avoid at any cost the " freelancer" taxis,. You can recognize them that, they don't have any company logo on their cars. They usually charge 4-5x the price, what it normally should be.
