Earlier this week i booked a flight for a friend and i to Budapest. We're making a pit stop there in July on our way to Novi Sad in Serbia for EXIT Festival. We don't have long there, and neither of us have been before so it's hugely exciting starting to think of all the places to visit. I was having a browse on the web and made a (long) short list of potential things to see and do...
We could enjoy the healing waters in the Rudus Thermal Baths, build in the 16th century during the Turkish occupation. I got a little downhearted when i looked at the prices and saw that a weekend all day pass cost would set you back 1,800 HUF, until i put it into a currency converter and discovered it was a measly £5.80.
The Museum of Applied Arts
The Széchenyi Chain Bridge
I really hope we get time to visit the Great Market Hall, it's packed with food stalls selling typically Hungarian produce, famous for its Hungarian paprika powder.
Needless to say i am getting so very excited about the trip, and it's still months away. I think what i'm looking forward to most is arriving in a city with a completely new culture.
