Tip of the month

Enchanting Budapest.

Budapest casts its spell on you straight away. Buda Castle towers impressively on the banks of the Danube and shows its best side – majestic during the day and magically illuminated at night.

You must see the large indoor market, where you can rub shoulders with the locals and find traditional specialities as well as Hungarian arts and crafts.

If you are in Budapest in winter, it is worth visiting the lake in front of Vajdahunyad Castle. In summer, this tempts you to take pleasant boot trips, and in winter it is converted into the largest outdoor ice-skating rink in Europe (Városligeti Műjégpálya).

A tip to save your legs.

After an extensive city trip that offers many sights of interest, we recommend switching down a gear. The best option is the Széchenyi thermal bath and swimming pool, one of the largest pools in Europe. The thermal water here comes from 1,200 metres deep at a temperature of 76 degrees Celsius. Included in the admission price are numerous offers such as the fitness studio, various saunas, aerobics and water aerobics.

Lively Belgrade.

It is no surprise: life is vibrant in Belgrade just as it is in some other post-socialist cities. Everything seems to be stirred up and full of creativity and joie de vivre.

In Belgrade, people meet up in shops, cafés and bars in Knez Mihailova Street, which has been called one of the most attractive streets in Eastern Europe.

You can enjoy your time in Kalemegdan with a little more peace and quiet. This is one of the largest and most attractive parks in Belgrade and one of the most important cultural historical complexes in the Serbian capital. The old town of “Skadarlija” is worth a visit from a culinary perspective, and you will find a host of traditional Serbian restaurants there.

Tip for night owls.

Club Centar is located centrally, and Serbian pop and rock is played, as well as jazz and reggae. The Brankow Bar is particularly hip. You can enjoy a pleasant coffee here during the day, and in the evenings you can party with DJs and live music.
