Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We enjoyed our day at the Palatinus Strand Baths. Nice facilities, clean grounds. Kids enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor pools for them. We enjoyed the massage jets and the wave pool. Loved all the trees and green space. Very much appreciated the lockers. Reasonable price.

    I went to Sziget Festival for the first time on my own as a single female in 2019, hoping to just do my own thing and meet people there. I left Sziget knowing I'd be going back every year for the rest of my life! It's truly a unique festival from the location to the people. It's called the Island of Freedom and it really does fit the name.

    The food was decently priced (in comparison to the Spanish and UK festivals I've been to, Sziget was better priced) - pricey for Budapest but cheap for a festival.

    You can't take alcohol in with you however the drinks prices are relatively well priced with only spirits being a bit too expensive. (But still, in comparison to my other festival experience - still cheaper than average) A lot of people just got into the habit of buying alcohol from the big supermarket nearby and drinking on the grass outside the store to bypass the Sziget prices.

    The lineup was star studded in 2019 with massive names playing such as Ed Sheeran, The 1975, Franz Ferdinand, Florence and the Machine, Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and others. The stage was easily seen from quite a ways back (I didn't find it necessary to stand on my toes!), with large screens to help with that too.

    There is so much else to do at Sziget in addition to just the music, art, yoga, sport, swimming, boat parties, relaxing on the beach, dancing, a circus, and so much more.

    One word of warning, due to the dust and mixing with lots of people you are quite likely to get ill after the festival - so book some recovery time for after the festival!

    Interesting museum, about the old Roman settlement ruins next to the Sziget island. It has a small indoor museum with different artifacts from the ruins, and a larger outdoor one with larger objects. There are various information signs around the area, that explain what type of building the ruin once was.
    It is worth spending a few hours. There is a children offer at the last Sunday of each month at a reduced price. Check out their own website for updated info.

    Great museum eventhough slightly out of the way. Definitely worth the trip, and you’re pretty much on your own. Don’t hesitate!

    Imre Varga created the moving sculptures in the Doheny Synagogue commemorating the Jewish lives lost during WWII in Hungary. He is not Jewish, and yet was commissioned to do these pieces, no doubt, because of his evocative works about humanity and the sacredness of life. His many sculptures of his father feature his loss of limbs after serving in the war, with his medals of honor affixed to his chest with nails, reminiscent of Jesus on the cross, conveying the hypocrisy and the sacrifices of war. We found this museum moving and beautiful, as each piece is deeply thoughtful and moving. Because we began our trip with the Doheny synagogue and ended it with the Imre Varga Museum, we felt it to be an extra magical, bookended trip. Don't hesitate to ask the museum director to explain some of the pieces, especially the sculpture of the woman on horseback in the inner courtyard.... a very special story awaits you. We also visited the Vasarely Museum nearby (wonderful).

    Visited on Sunday 8th October. We were on a guided tour and our tour guide took us for a walk around this very historic area of the city. Not to be missed, just make sure you allow yourself enough time to see everything there.

    Who would've thought a museum with a rather stuffy-sounding name such as (the) Museum of Trade and Tourism would be so fun?

    We particularly loved the reconstruction of a communist-era shop: my husband was born in the dying days of those times, and he confirmed the accuracy of the display.

    Kiscelli Museum is set in a beautiful building in a leafy courtyard, a short distance from Budapest's city centre. We enjoyed getting out of the craziness and into a more normal, lived in part of the city as we journeyed on the tram.

    What was particularly interesting for us were the old guild and shop signs, however the content of the museum is varied and, at some points, unexpected (as a few rooms also house art exhibitions and displays).

    In one of the quiet lanes of Buda is a Ferrenc Puskás Statue, where he shows young kids his special mastery of the ball. I think all the statues are made of bronze. A cool way to honour the footballing great.

    If you ever come to Bp you must take a visit to “Római Part”. It is a little bit far away from the center but if the weather is good and you want to have a little rest from the busy city visit this place. There are a lot of small restaurat where you can eat fish, chicken and some other tipical hungarian food. There are a lot of place where you can drink or eat an icecream. The place is just next to the Danube and you can go down to the coast. It is wort to come to this place.

    In a ton where the Jewish history is so sad, it was such an uplifting experience to see a beautiful Active Synagogue. Rabbi Isaac was so friendly. They were setting up a Shabbat meal for the 100 regulars. Really glad we stopped. Obuda is a fun place to go

    In the immediate vicinity of Árpád Bridge, there is a St. Peter and Paul Catholic church with a well-kept small park. In 1015 St. Stephen ordered that a temple should be built for the leading apostles on this place. During the centuries several churches were erected on the top of the ruins of the previous one. The current one built in a Baroque style with richly decorated church interior. To be able to see this, I had to go back between the two masses because, as we know in Hungary, apart from the time of some services, the churches are closed. The main altar is made of red marble, in the middle is a niche with a statue of teaching Christ. It was created in 1773-74. There are fine side altars as well as an ornate Rococo pulpit. The Kiscelli altar is also worth mentioning. However, you want to see some kitsch, look at the “Helping Maria (Maria Hilf). I think it's terrible.
    It is unfortunate that in such a charming, beautiful church there is water in the aspersorium that I would not allow my dog to dip his foot in. Would not it be possible to replace it more often with less sacred but cleaner water? Beside the church, there is an ornate wrought iron (?) belfry and Bonfini's symbolic tombstone at the church wall.
