    Hello,

    My husband and I will be going to Budapest next month. I've read up on what to visit and all, but what I lack now is personal advice.

    Has anyone of you been there yet? Any recommendations on what I have to do or avoid?

    I'm planning to do the History Museum and the Aquincum Museum as well as the Széchenyi Baths (for the mudpacking option). Should I go to the famous Gellért Baths too? (It seems quite touristy and small to me)

    I only ever visited the Gellért Baths, but the interiors there are definitely worth seeing.

    I have been to Budapest several times but it did not impress me very much...but if you go there you should visit Prague(Czech Republic) is close and it's very very nice

    owww.. but I've bought the tickets already. Anyway, I'll try to make the best of it.

    Seems that this site is very US-centred. Not too many Europeans here...

    I'm personally a fan of Vienna, but I hear Prague is amazing. I've only been to Hungary once, but unfortunately it was when I was smaller and I don't remember much from it.

    Hi guys!
    Thanks for your replies! icon_lol.gif

    I just came back from Budapest and I loved it!
    The city is grand and beautiful, the metro is clean and efficient. I was really surprised by how civilised people were: everyone lets others get off the train before going on and no one pushes anyone else. It's a big difference from where I am right now!

    The cultural scene is obviously very rich, it's a pity I don't understand Hungarian.

    I love the open air thermal baths. The locker system is a bit messy but once you get the hang of it, just have to sit back and enjoy the warm water and beautiful men.

    I strongly recommend the Rudas Bathhouse. It is a Turkish bathhouse but only better. Men run around naked (save for a small white cotton apron) and the atmosphere was light-hearted and gay-friendly. I got appreciative glances every now and then, but am glad I wasn't in a sexual environment, because that wasn't what I was looking for.

    There are lots of good quality museums in the city. If you like history like I do, there are too many choices!

    I am definitely going back one day!
