Route
“I am recommending this spot only because it is quite an important party scene in Budapest with plenty of bars, restaurants and night clubs. However it is also very touristy so am trying to avoid it most of the time myself. But you can have a beer here just to taste the atmosphere - and if you like it, go for it!”
