THE SUN’S OUT – SO ARE THE TERRACES!

THE SUN’S OUT – SO ARE THE TERRACES!

Outdoor restaurants and bars in Budapest and at Kempinski Hotel Corvinus

Talk about a winter of discontent. Spring beckons late this year, which is why the launch of the Budapest terrace season is taking on a significance comparable to Sakura. For Budapesters can’t be without outdoor restaurants and terraces – so much so that at this stage, there’s no self-respecting business without one. Should the evenings turn cold, worry not: they’ll provide funky colourful fleece blankets to wrap up in.

Bazilika Square remains one of the mustn’t-miss terrace destinations. DiVino is exactly what it says on the tin, or rather, the bottle, while Platz sprawls over a 100 sq m terrace.

What to take home from Budapest

The delicacies of Hungary might not leap off the shelves of culinary speciality shops like Asian or Italian foodstuffs, but can we just say this: the snails and truffles – yes, truffles – you buy back home might very well come from this neck of the woods!

More self-evident is Tokaj wine, the eponymous region’s trademark variety, which now comes as dry wine, not just a sweet dessert drink; and Zwack Unicum, our own herbal bitter, as well as Bikavér, or Bull’s Blood, a blend notoriously difficult to make but all the more rewarding in the hands of a new generation of creative vintners.

Paprika is Hungary’s national treasure status spice – you can buy it as a garland of vibrant red, dry paprika ...

What to eat in Budapest

Not only its architecture, culture and thermal baths are attracting visitors to Hungary, but the blooming gastro scene, too. Great food is everywhere you turn in Budapest, plus the year is full of food-related events, from delightful gastronomy festivals to smaller culinary occasions.

Hungarians are so proud of their food, so when in Hungary, the fastest way to get to their soul is certainly eating and drinking. Hungarian food is wide-ranging and diverse, and during its history the cuisines of many nations became intertwined in the country’s gastronomy.

BUDAPEST, CITY OF SPAS

BUDAPEST, CITY OF SPAS

Budapest’s healing waters were already acknowledged by Roman legionaries more than 2000 years ago; 14 baths were in the city at that time. Budapest is a unique capital in the world, where 123 natural hot springs and drilled wells deliver daily 70 million litres of 21-78°C thermal waters. Budapest remains the unsung hero of baths culture, and soaking galore there is to be had! With the cold season beckoning, dipping and chilling (sic!) in therapeutic warm water is a must. What’s more, it’s beneficial to your overall health at the time of flu and rheumatoid issues.
