Budapest, A Tale of Two Cities
Budapest might better be thought of as two cities at once divided and united by the mighty Danube. Hilly Buda, where you’ll find the castle district, is the old town while flat-as-a-board Pest has a big city feel. This meeting of historical and modern is a theme you’ll find throughout the city. Budapest has been popular with expats for decades and more recently digital nomads have taken over.
Meet your Local Hero
In Budapest your friendly local hero is Norbi. Before your trip he’ll be in touch to help you prepare for your working vacation and answer any questions. When you arrive Norbi will meet you and show you around town. The whole time you’re in Budapest he’s always ready to assist and just a phone call away.
Let the good times roll
With Hungary resolutely staying out of the Euro currency, prices for services and eating out in Budapest remain lower than most of its neighbors. It’s hard to have a bad time in Budapest. Whether you want to geek out over the spectacular architecture, kick back at one of the city’s legendary ruin pubs, experience the unique bath culture or enjoy one of the many festivals that pack the calendar.
Underrated foodie destination
Hungarian food might be a mystery to most but it packs some serious flavors. Fine Hungarian dining is something to be savored, an easy feat given the city’s six Michelin-starred restaurants. Hungary is a wine country and Budapest has the wine bars to match. Locals love nothing more than a sunset froccs or spending time on Margaret Island, a green oasis in the middle of the city.
Budapest’s majestic summer capital, Lake Balaton, is just about an hour away and is the perfect place to cool down for the day or to even spend the weekend. The closest vineyards to Budapest are in the charming village of Etyek, making for the perfect afternoon of sipping your new favorite varietals. On a more colorful note, along the Danube Bend is the artists’ village Szentendre.
Staying in Hungary our picks are the duelling wine towns of Eger and Tokaj to the east and Villany to the south. It’s a short train ride or drive to Bratislava, Slovakia’s capital and just a bit further on to Vienna, the elegant old Austro-Hungarian imperial seat. Or hop on a plane. Low-cost carrier Wizz Air is practically the national airline and there are short cheap flights to cities all over Europe.
