When it comes to catching the tourist must-sees, many are found on the riverside. Cross over to the Buda bank to take a look at the Parliament Building from afar or take the funicular up to the Royal Palace. On this side of the river, you’ll also find Rudas Turkish Baths, the oldest in the city. It boasts a (heated!) rooftop pool with Instagram-ready views. So, if you're looking to decompress, head to Rudas as it's open until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays.
You can’t visit Budapest without spending a night crawling the infamous ruin bars – unique, bohemian drinking spots located in formerly abandoned buildings. Kick off your evening with some traditional Jewish cuisine in Mazel Tov before sinking a few more pints in Anker't or Instant. Finish up in Szimpla Kert, the original ruin bar, a labyrinthine venue with eclectic decor and various indoor and outdoor rooms.
