Dracula Statue

Bela Lugosi is the vampire archetype since hi acted like that. The Vajdahunyad Castle was built in 1896 of wood, imitating the Transilvanian Castle, and people liked it so much that it was rebuilded of stone… and with a statue of the actor in one of his squares! So you should look at the castle to find where it is.

Visit the Opera

For about 30 € you can enjoy classical music and the most emblematic operatic works of the world in a building that at the time rivaled the Vienna Opera in seating places and acoustics. A very affordable price for any pocket, especially considering the quality and importance of the visit.

Giant Hourglass

To commemorate its entry into the European Union, the world’s largest hourglass was placed very close to the Heroes Square, which is turned once a year. Visiting it is completely free and a real show.



Diving in an old brewery

An old mine used as a brewery, Kobanya, was flooded and since then is a wonder for diving enthusiasts. If you like these experiences and you have the Open Water title you can immerse yourself in this unique place.

Take the cog railway to Normafa Park

This beautiful place is usually visited by bus, but it will only take a few more minutes if you take the cog railway, whose journey will allow you to enjoy nature much more. You will arrive at the Buda Hills, the Normafa Park or Mount Széchenyi, as you prefer, but if you can, visit all of them, you won’t regret!
