  • Fantastic flat 5K loop, perfect for running in the city. I was there on my own after dark (in January), and felt totally safe as a woman because there were plenty of other runners at all times.

  • We were there on Jan 1, almost everything was closed. I’m sure it’s beautiful at spring time, but rhis time was too damp and cold.

  • If you have more than 2 days in Budapest, I would recommend visiting Margaret Island. Amazing place to relax, ride a bike and just to enjoy beautiful Hungarian weather
  • A wonderful place for locals as well as tourists. It has running tracks, bikes, scooters, jeeps to drive around. There is a beautiful Japanese garden , ruins of a monestery, a few trees which are more than 500 years old, a small zoo which you can enter the area where animals are freely roaming around. The fountain works only in the evenings and not in winter.
