The 7th District which used to be the Jewish quarter became the nightlife neighborhood. This is THE place to explore at night.

Budapest itself is such a romantic city. Wherever you would go - you would feel in love.

It's freeeeezing out - what should a visitor do?
Drink forralt bor - Mulled wine. It will make you HOT.

Szimpla kert on 14 Kazinczy St. is a cool place to have Sunday Brunch. With a farmers market downstairs and a huge all-you-can-eat buffet, this is a great place to start the weekend.
Your perfect night out in Budapest includes:
A glass of Fröccs - A spritzer (Wine and soda water).
Tomorrow’s your last day in Budapest. How do you spend it?
I would take it easy, have a coffee and a couple of cakes, eat a wonderful lunch and just do nothing. It is important to leave a good taste for next time.
