Budapest Photo Diary and Guide

And here are some of my favourite photos from our trip to Budapest. Audrey and I had an amazing time pruning in the thermal baths, pigging out on paprika chicken whenever we had the chance, and admiring the city's beauty- Budapest hasn't seen the best of times as far as its history is concerned but everyone was amazingly warm and hospitable, and its worth a visit for the chimney cake alone. See the end of the post for some of our recommendations, and I hope you enjoy the photos.

Shot on a Pentax Spotmatic with (expired...oops) Portra 400 film and Ilford BW film.

Our favourite spots: 

Széchenyi Thermal baths / Gellert spa: We went to Széchenyi but I wish we had time to go to both. Pretty much a must-do if you're in the city- to relax, or to marvel at the cute elderly Hungarians going about their daily soak. 

Fisherman's Bastion and Buda Castle: Touristy but also a must-do, and a good way to walk off all the schnitzel you'll be eating. 

Eat at...
Barack and Szilva: One of our favourite meals- tradition Hungarian fare with a warm but modern atmosphere. Don't miss the paprika chicken and cabbage noodles. 

Beszálló Foodbar: a Vietnamese-Hungarian spot we didn't get to try but was highly recommended by a friend (thank you, Sári!)

Molnar's chimney cake: So good we went back for more- go for breakfast, and share it with two americano coffees from the coffee bar (dipping is highly recommended). We loved the cinnamon and plain (vanilla) flavours. 

Big Fish Bistro: If you get a little tired of eating beef and pork with potatoes and feel like seafood (we also had to come back, as we loved it so much the first time). You can choose your catch at the front of the restaurant, and don't miss the fries. 

Comme Chez Soi: The food in Budapest is generally very affordable, but this Italian restaurant especially, considering how big the portions are and its slightly fancier setting. The staff were super nice, and everyone gets a free dessert. 

Shop at: 
Nanushka: I would wear everything from Nanushka....that's all. 

We stayed at an Airbnb (here) which was lovely but I didn't get many photos of it. If you're travelling this summer and are thinking of booking an Airbnb, you can get a discount off your first stay here
