Preparing for Budapest: Tips & Hints

1. Travelers are highly recommended to purchase a special discount card. It entitles you to have discounted rates on public transport, museums, amusement parks, zoos and other cultural facilities.
2. While exploring the city, tourists are recommended to use only public transport. The number of buses and trolleybuses is really big here, so you will have no problems with reaching any point of interest or attraction.
3. Those tourists, who expect to travel using taxi, should make sure their wallets are tight and full of US dollars. Many drivers accept payments exclusively in U.S. dollars. You also need to specify the price of your ride beforehand with the driver. Many unscrupulous drivers use the lack of awareness among tourists and increase their rates several times.

6. If you want to devote much time to walk in the city, summer is definitely the best time for your trip. The period starting from June and till August is considered the hottest one.

7. The most popular souvenirs in Budapest are products made of crystal and lace. You will find these products at very reasonable prices in local shops and outlets.
8. Fines for traffic violations are rather harsh here. This concerns not only motorists, but also pedestrians. You should be especially careful when passing a road. A flashing green light here has the same meaning as our ordinary and familiar to many yellow signal.
9. When you purchase goods on open markets, you need to be prepared for the fact that many sellers increase prices deliberately, counting on uninformed tourists.
