1. Go to Castle Hill
We think one of the best things about being a star is that you get to travel, a lot – be it for shoots or endorsements or just plain fun travel – life is always fun. Like Srimanthudu star Shruti Haasan. One day she is in Delhi, the next day she is in Dharamsala and then before you can even keep up, she has flown to Budapest. Are you planning to visit the Hungarian capital just like her? We got you a list of seven must-do things that you should mark in your itinerary.
Castle Hill is limestone plateau which is spread over a kilometre. It’s 170 m above the river Danube and houses some of the most important museums and medieval monuments of the city. It has been listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site and has a 28-km long network of caves below it which have been formed by thermal springs. It is divided into the Old Town which was inhabited by the commoners and the Royal Palace.
2. Check out the Chain Bridge
3. The boat trip
4. Visit the Great Synagogue
5. Gobble some Langos
6. Party at Szimpla Kert
This is THE party place. If you are a party animal, you cannot miss checking out Szimpla Kert in the Jewish Quarter. This iconic ruin pub pretty much set nightlife standards in the city when it opened in 2001. A large, almost run-down building, a mish-mash of rooms, edgy artwork – that’s how this bar is summed up. Down a shot of the traditional Hungarian herbal liqueur Unicum for some of the best memories.
7. The Parliament House
It is one of the most famous landmarks of the city and hence one you should not forget to visit. It has 691 rooms (no kidding!) and is built in the Gothic Revival style, meaning it looks plain outstanding. That apart, it is home to some great artwork. Get a guide!
