Why this city is one of the most underrated in Europe is beyond us – there’s good reason it has become one of today’s major digital nomad hubs.
Budapest is situated on both sides of the Danube River, which dramatically divides the formerly distinct cities of Buda and Pest (unfortunate, but true) and makes for spectacular panoramic views. Sitting at café on the river, gazing out at a skyline of tremendous buildings and monuments in the most opulent architectural styles is utterly majestic.
For one of the cheapest European cities, this place is completely indulgent. And you get to greet people with an enthusiastic “see ya!” (szia) and snicker to yourself as you adjust to the impossible sounds of Hungarian.
The richness of Budapest doesn’t stop with the sights though. Alternative youth culture has played a huge role in the city’s rejuvenation since WWII. Galleries and art collectives, new music, and chic fashion (yes, there is more to Hungarian attire than the tracksuit) are always keeping things buzzing. “Ruin bars” have become some of the most fantastic and gritty social hubs to enjoy, though the city has such a diversity of nightlife options no one should have to deal with club Euro-pop, unless that’s your thing of course.
Things not to miss: summer “sparties” at the luxurious Széchenyi Baths, Sziget music and culture festival – the Burning Man of Europe, and food. Goulash is heaven. Eat it. Find the best coworker community for you by clicking on our interactive map and exploring Budapest's coworking spaces.
