The Budapest Bucket List


As someone that's been fortunate to do a fair bit of travelling, one area of the world I haven't actually seen all that much of is Europe... That sounds so weird to write, but it's true. Considering that a lot of European cities are a few hours flight away at most, there really isn't any excuse. 

For example, I spent two months in Asia last summer but I haven't ever been to Paris (actual Paris that is, I've been to Disneyland). Anyway, after all of that ramble, I'm slowly but surely getting through lots of the places on my Europe bucket list, what with visiting both Amsterdam and Iceland last year. This weekend, however, my housemates and I are jetting off to Budapest for four days as a joint 21st birthday trip and I am SO EXCITED. So, for today's post, I thought I'd do a quick Budapest bucket list of all the things I hope we manage to do whilst we're away! (I don't expect us to do all of these, I got a bit carried away whilst making this list)

The Budapest Bucket List
  • See the Parliament Building
  • Walk around Heroes Square
  • Climb St Stephen's Basilica
  • Visit the Fisherman's Bastion
  • See Dohany Street Synagogue
  • Drink in a few ruin bars
  • Visit Buda Castle
  • Swim at the Széchenyi Thermal Baths
  • Wander around City Park 
  • Walk across the chain bridge (and see the two former cities)
  • See the Opera House 
  • Wander along Andrássy Avenue
  • Try goulash and other Hungarian dishes

Have I missed anything?
What's your favourite thing to do in Budapest?


  1. The ruin bars are so fun and I definitely recommend going to a thermal baths if you can.

    I hope you all have an amazing time, can't wait to hear all about it!
