Budapest Card

Parliament Building in Budapest

Hungary for Culture? Freely Soak in the Sights.

The capital of Hungary is famed for fragrant paprika, goulash, Gellert thermal baths and the gorgeous Danube. Budapest is large – so much so that it’s split into two sections: Buda and Pest.

Buda is hilly and green, with gentle winding roads – more like the suburbs. The Pest is flatter, more urban, with most of the city’s cultural offerings. Want to see it all? Get the Budapest Card.

You’ll enjoy unlimited travel on the city’s public transport system, plus free guided tours, museum entry and discounts. In your choice of 24, 48 or 72 hours validities, you’ll also receive a color brochure with step-by-step instructions on how to make the most of your Card.
