New York Cafe
Built in Italian Renaissance style, with sparkling chandeliers dangling from high ceilings adorned by spectacular frescoes, it’s one of the oldest cafes in Budapest, dating back 125 years.
The New York Cafe is the center of literary and artistic life and the favorite place for rendezvous of artists, writers, and poets.
Erzsebet krt. 9, Budapest
Vajdahunyad Castle is located in the city park of Budapest. Just like most of the architecture in Budapest, Vajdanhunyad Castle looks like a scene straight out of a fairytale.
The mix of Gothic-Renaissance and Baroque architecture creates an almost eerie scene. Legend has it that the castle once imprisoned Count Dracula.
It is free to enter the grounds of Vajdahunyad Castle, so even if you do not wish to go inside, it is worth taking a stroll through the courtyards. Inside, there is a museum.
The castle is open from Monday – Sunday from 9 am – 7 pm.

Szimpla Kert by day
Szimpla Kert is Budapest’s most famous ruin bar by night and an artistic center by day. We recommend visiting Szimpla Kert during the day and returning in the evening for a fun night out.
Walking around Szimpla Kert feels like getting lost in a twisted wonderland.
