I pre-purchased the ticket for the direct transfer bus that leaves from Deak Ferenc ter. On the day I went the bus was full and the last couple of people missed out. If you buy bus tickets in advance from the website you get a...More

I was curious to see the communist-era statues that now appear in Memento Park. I found it very interesting that the Hungarians did not destroy them, did not erase their history, but simply moved them to a park. The park is a bit out of...More

It is outside the city and you need a taxi to take you, stay, and take you back. A great exhibition of soviet sculpture. I went in the winter when it was freezing cold and snow on the ground but it added to the whole...More

We took the shuttle from Erszebet Square. which included admission, then paid for a guided tour. It was very enjoyable and easy to do, which was fortunate, especially since it was very hot and our two young kids were with us. Our guide was very...More

Yes, I think it was 1500, and the shop (in keeping with good communistic tradition!) had cheap water and stuff. The guidebook is an absolute must.
