It's a beautiful city but also a beautiful european union country...95%of people don't speak English and those 5% speak it really well only when they are billing you for something,otherwise you are on your own. 👏👏👏 you need to see the architetcture once,but because of the people you probably won't come back again.Also parking and traffic horrible...even google maps doesn't help in the center and the parking is on the side of the street only and always full.
Take a look at my day trip in Budapest on Instagram if you like, which along with some of these things also includes a trip to the children’s railway and down the cable car, which is a lot of fun! https://instagram.com/p/BmmN58LhChu/
Geeked out a little on the 25 spots. Thanks for the information - enjoyed the journey. Made a list "Top things to do in Budapest Hungary" on google maps from this video if anyone would like to have those available. Thank you Samuel and Audrey! 🏙✈🗺 https://goo.gl/maps/QkdienZzXyF2 🍽🍻
Again very obnoxiously.......loud mouthed dont know where you guys are from and quite frankly dont care....seriously 1.50 into this vid...and you have totally turned me off.......do us all a favor if youre loud mouthed...DONT BLEEDING VLOG
Hi! I’m very interested to know what kind of job do you both do for a living because you guys literally travel to anywhere in the world so I’m curious how do you keep the budget and money do these things. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing! You're extremely skilled. I like to travel as well:)I just revealed my first ever video - My travel diary in Queenstown. Eep!Would definitely adore your feed-back on my video/editing so I could improve like you!
The main attractions look great in your video. We will be there in August for Around The World (see: https://youtu.be/RqMsDwaDCj0) and I was wondering if you happened to have gone to the Cocoon spa? Also do you have any suggestions for a vegetarian restaurant there?
Was going to go there for a holiday, beautiful country but......just found out that it is lead by a Dictator who is worst than Drumpf ! I decided not to go and avoid everything Hungarian until things change !
I was in Budapest for business in1987 and met a lot of people so happy to get rid of the Russian harness and were really friendly and kind people....sadly they seem to forget !
Very good videoo
Just an alert:
Beware the metro 3
It is a veeeery old metro, and it has got some accidents ( its engie 's dead, or sometimes it burns.)
But that was a great video, and we hope you enjoy hungary :)
Guys, the chicken
dish that you had with the dumplings were the famous chicken paprikas, and the the other dish at kek rozsa was not goulash it was goulash soup totally different from just goulash. Love you both!!
Great video! I'm going to budapest on monday and I can't wait! I have one question though, is it difficult to make yourself understood? I have alot of allergies making it really important at some points 😊
That is cool to hear! Yes, we found most people working in the service industry could speak a bit of English. I'd maybe have some sentences translated into Hungarian though before arriving using something like google translate.
great video! could you please mention prices you paid for things etc in future videos.. like meals at certain places or how much a beer is at the baths. would be great information for people wanting to go to Budapest and curious about budgeting. :)
Brilliant video , I'm from the UK and went there last Autumn after being told to get booking for it by my daughter who had just returned from a girls trip there. Budapest is simply awesome and has so much for a small city and we have vowed to return to what is now one of my favourite cities in the world. It is up there with Vienna , Barcelona, Berlin etc. As you can see it's size and population belie it's attractive buildings, thermal baths etc .
I guess you forgot to mention that the shoe memorial is a reminder of the many jews who lived here and died during the Holocaust... also, all the bridges that connect Buda and Pest, were destroyed by the nazis at the end of WW II, including the "Chain" bridge, the one with the lions... the Budapest Synagogue is beautiful and also the largest in Europe.
The internal and visible structure of the City Market was built by Eiffel, the same guy of the Paris Tower... next time you're in Budapest, go back to the market and have a poppy seed struddel. Hungary is very famous for its pastries.
