Everything you need to know before traveling to Budapest

Wat je moet weten voordat je naar Boedapest reist Wat je moet weten voordat je naar Boedapest reist Wie, wat, waar? Misschien weet je het al: Boedapest bestaat uit twee samengevoegde steden, gescheiden door de Donau. Aan de west-zijde ligt het heuvelachtige en historische Buda, aan de oost-zijde het toeristische, vlakke Pest. In Buda moet je zijn voor je heuveltraining, waanzinnige uitzichten over de stad en historische bouwwerken als de Burcht van Buda. Ik verwacht dat je in Pest de meeste tijd zult doorbrengen. Hier vind je de meeste bezienswaardigheden, musea, bars, restaurants, etc. De uitgaanswijk is Erzsébetváros, of district 7. Shoppen doe je in Váci utca of in WestEnd City Center. Bezienswaardigheden zijn verspreid over Pest. - Lees meer: 5x de mooiste uitzichten in Boedapest

Budapest diary #1

Every month, I publish a little (picture) diary from Budapest with the highlights of the past month. This is July! There are a ton of events thanks to the summer season. Combining all that with work, working out, and my courses is a lot of work. At least I love doing it all!

Before July started I already had some plans: a picnic, the Redbull Air Races, maybe a visit to music festival BalatonSound, a visit to the Netherlands, a visitor from Germany and my birthday. No way I’d get bored!
