I don't know about the rest of Europe, but here in Budapest we are experiencing a tropical hot summer weather nowadays. I show you two great places where locals hang out during summer time.
Nr1: Retro getaway - Római Beach
"Római part" is basically an hour by boat from the center, if you take the HÉV from the Margaret-bridge, it's even less than an hour, already the boat ride on the Danube is quite a nice experience. The Budapest public transport company owns the ships, that depart every hour from several points of the city. If you have a BKV daily ticket, you can depart with that, but you can also buy tickets on the spot. I took the boat in front of the Parliament, I enjoyed my trip very much.
Arriving to the final stop called "Római Part", you will have the retro feeling, you can eat Lángos everywhere and names like Fellini or Nap bácsi will sound familiar to you.
Nap Bácsi is kind of open air buffet, it was my choice for that day, close to the Danube, sitting on little chairs, snipping a glass of Rosé and their quesadilla is the best I've ever tasted in Budapest.
If you are with children, it's the perfect place, there are little playgrounds and the Danube breeze is so cool. You step out of the city for a few hours and you are close to the nature and the river. Highly recommended afternoon program with friends or family. Let me know how you liked it! Tomorrow I'm posting about another great getaway in the city. Stay tuned!
