If you like great music and ambient then szimpla is the must see in Budapest. I was surprised with the ambient inside the abandoned building.

The bar is huge, with many different rooms and spaces, all of which completely different. It...More

If you want to visit just one ruin bar, this is the one to visit. Achingly stylish in a ruined, degraded kind of way. It has bags of character and endless cool quirks. We only went twice but I could imagine you'd find something new...More

District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses
the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and
colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in
an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic
crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of
the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly

I would say it's still cheaper than UK/London bars, but more expensive than other bars in Budapest because this is the most touristy place. With £ being 25% weaker than it was when I last visited, I would say international... More
