The official website of the baths note that the lockers are size "120x30x65 cm", and that larger bags can be stored within the cabin. Cabins are actually personal changing rooms that you get assigned to, and you open with a wristband so it is secure. As stated on their website "The size of the cabin can easily hold a standard suitcase or a backpacker ...

This is one of the more controversial topics in Hungary. You need a little historical background: as you might know, Hungary was under Soviet occupation between 1945 and 1989 and had this system which is usually called socialism. In this era Hungarian gastronomy was destroyed, anything but the most basic ingredients were impossible to get (perhaps this ...

As pnuts posted this guide is pretty accurate. I'd like to add to the taxi section that taxify is now available in Budapest which is like Uber except for the all around evilness of Uber. Summarized: Sit-down eateries: 10-15% (as befitting service) but be mindful of "szervízdíj" (service charge) which is often already added to the bill. No need to add a ...

Is plane-side at BTS Airport to AS Mlynské nivy doable in 50 min? It might work out but it's extremely tight with checked bags. In order to make the connection the flight will need to be exactly on time, the baggage service quite prompt and there be no other hiccups. I expect the biggest risk beyond the flight is for the bags to take more than 20 minutes to ...

Just as a short answer after the trip: I did not buy the Budapest card and just 2 24-hours tickets and I was really satisfied. I chose the restaurants myself and paid the entries which I wanted in full. The National Museum would have been for free but I think even with this my choice was cheaper.

The Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey, US, opened a Rubik's Cube exhibition named Beyond Rubik's Cube in April 2014. It remained there until November 2014, and then became a traveling exhibition (schedule available). Google collaborated with the museum in the exhibition's design. Among other things it includes a 10-foot (3 meter) tall Rubik'...

While Budapest has quite a few these certainly it didn't start there. It started in the Silicon Valley in 2006 but "Real Escape Games" became immensely popular in Japan and spread to Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Taiwan. The first one in Budapest opened in 2011 and began to really spread in 2012. For two people, it's very likely http://paraparkbudapest....

I'm not sure if it's the same as in Győr (I suspect you're talking about Arrabona Ételbár's speciality), but you should be fine everywhere where they serve "melegszendvics". Personally I'd go with Cserpes Tejivó, because they seem to have grilled mushroom sandwiches, they have a few locations around the city (in Sütő utca, at Corvin, in Allee and in MOM ...

Yes. You have Schengen and UK Visas. As you travel through different Schengen countries, this is counted as one visit/trip. It is only when you leave the Schengen area like you will when you enter the UK) that this visit ends. Please note that this single entry Schengen visa, which means that you will need to fly home from the UK, as you will have used up ...

If you have plenty of time, you can take the night bus operated by Croatia Bus, departing 22:00 in Sarajevo and arriving 06:00 in Zagreb. Then the train from Zagreb Glavni Kolod. at 09:57, arriving in Budapest 16:29. The price will be about 55€ (25€ for the bus and 30€ for the train).

After hunting around on the BKK english language website, I've found the answer. There's a handy bi-lingual PDF of the bus times and connections from the airport available on their site, if you dig down enough In summary: From 3:30am until 11pm, there's a 200E bus every 7-8 minutes, which will connect you with Metro line 3 Between 11pm and just after ...

I've been googling a bit these last few days and I found a website that seems helpful to me. Eventful : It's a website that offers what I was looking for, allowing me to filter events by date (it's possible to filter just those events taking place today) and different categories and including links to buy the tickets for any of them. I will keep digging ...

In the tourist area most restaurants seem to accept credit cards. Always inquiry before seating, as even if the restaurant has the card logos at the door/in menu, sometime they have "technical difficulties" accepting cards - and they don't post it. Three museums I went to accepted card payments for tickets as well. Haven't seen any posts there about ...

In Budapest, you can pay by card almost anywhere except the tinyest shops, and in most cases, you can do it contactless. In tourist areas, some shops take only cash and try to profit from ridiculous conversion rates if you pay by €. There are some tourist-focused restaurants too that don't accept cards (IMHO a bit suspicious), as George said, look for signs ...

Hertz has not filed for "Bankruptcy". Instead what they have filed for is something normally referred to as "Chapter 11", or "Bankruptcy Protection". The details of Chapter 11 aren't really a fit for a Travel site, but in short it allows the company time to negotiate with its creditors with a goal of staying in business and ...

I've seen a few apps like these, but they all focussed on only a few cities. As a recommendation, use Facebook: Go to http://facebook.com Click 'Events' in the left column. Scroll down and click 'Popular Events Nearby'. Annoyingly, the resulting list is sorted by some vague popularity rating, not by date.

This travelcard is valid for all trams and buses (including the night buses) in Budapest and some close suburbs (including the airport), on the HÉV suburban lines within the city limits (a separate suburban network that's pretty much like the metro), as well as on the BKK ferry. It isn't valid on the main suburban trains (not operated by BKK) nor on the ...

If the post office doesn't accept credit cards, you can buy public transport tickets at BKK customer service points. You will probably see one right in front of you once you leave the baggage claim area. They are very visible. They do accept credit cards. Not sure about EUR though.

The BKK has a handy list about points of sale in Hungarian but if you know the word "Közért" means "Grocery store" (roughly) then you can see one open 5am-10pm at the Népliget metró (underground) station. Also, it says the Relay store under ground is open from 4:30am (the one in the bus station above ground opens at 5:30am) and while their primary focus is ...

The main advantage of the Budapest card is all the discounts. If you're not into museums, you're better off just buying a couple of 24-hour travelcards (1650 HUF each) or a block of ten tickets for 3000 HUF (travel from the airport to the city center and back will take 4 tickets and you'll have 6 left for your stay).

Having spent time at the cafe mentioned, I can tell you that it indeed does have power outlets and comfortable seating. However, as it is the prominent cafe at check-in; it gets crowded quickly. There is often a large line at the counter. If you are traveling with a partner, have one reserve a seat for you.

According to this February 18, 2016 blog by Canadian Wanderer Ian Glen, the sundeck is an separate, additional fee: At both Széchenyi and Gellért men and women bath together and swimsuits – normally tiny Speedos for the men as this is Europe after all – are worn in all but a few clothing optional locations. Expect prices for an afternoon of relaxation in ...

There probably are few questions that warrant more subjective responses than yours, here. :) Or, in other words, it's all relative. The Dutch, in their day-to-day life, are considered, by many, to be surprisingly rude. The Dutch will instead say that they're being honest, or straightforward, and will argue that society as a whole is better for it. It's ...

What you are looking for is the area bordered by Teréz Boulevard, Erzsébet Boulevard, Rákóczi Street, Károly Boulevard, Bajzsi-Zsilinszky Steet. Mostly the inner side of District VII (and a bit of District VI). Sometimes also called "the Party District", because it's a favourite destination of foreigners because of the frequency of bars, pubs, restaurants ...

Most baths are quiet for a few hours after opening, Since youre going on a Monday it will be full of locals from 6-8, then usually quiet between 8-10, that might be ideal for you? Also, after 8pm is normally quite too, especially in winter. Source: I live here

You can use that visa to travel through the countries between Hungary and England, but because the UK is not in the Schengen area, you will need a separate UK visa to get to England itself. Furthermore, I note that the title of your question mentions "single visit." If that means that you have a single-entry visa, once you get to England you would be ...

This answer comes super late, but these are my suggestions. Take a bus to Belgrade, then either a bus or a train to Budapest from there (around 20-25 euro). To get you to Belgrade, take a bus from Istočno Sarajevo (around 25-30 euro return ticket). Novi Sad only has a train to Budapest (I think I paid 20 euro for the return ticket). Another, more expensive ...

Yes, you can buy food and coffee early in the morning at the Népliget bus station in Budapest. This morning, when I was there at around 6:00, roughly half of the numerous bakeries and convenience stores in the bus station and adjoining subway station were open.

There are machines in the bus stop, those take credit cards.
