SZABADSÁG TÉR  is a square, easily accessible from the direction of the Parliament, through Kossuth tér. Dominated by a huge park, the square is a popular place to hang out. Here is the Embassy of the United States and olso the monument of the Soviet Forces that liberated (later: occupied) Hungary in WW2 - in a bit of a contradiction with the name of the place, which translates to Liberty Square. The interactive fountain is a favourite among the locals and tourists.(1054 Budapest, Szabadság…

ÓBUDA ISLAND This island is world-famous thanks to Sziget festival, but in the other parts of the year it's not so popular, although it's worth visiting when you'd like to find a little peace and tranquility. There aren't roaring French or Dutch girls with beer-filled waterpistols as during the festival (what a pity), but instead there is quiet among the trees and a lot of recreational opportunities. (1033 Budapest, Óbudai-sziget)

Found atop the Buda Hills, NORMAFA is a popular hiking spot of Budapest, irrespective of season. No wonder that many a Hungarian poet and actor frequented it for picnics and skiing. According to the legend, an ancient beech standing here sprouted at the time of King Mathias and was named Normafa (Norma-tree) after a famous Hungarian opera singer sang a major aria from Bellini's Norma in front of it in 1840, but it was struck and destroyed by a lightning in the 1920ies.

SZÉCHENYI HILL (Sváb hill) strands tall with its 427 meters as part of the Buda Hills. In the Middle Ages, it was known as Négy (“Four”) Hill.  With the establishment of Budapest, the area became rather trendy among the wealthy and there were many villas built in the area. The Cogwheel Railway made this region more accessible, and the Children’s Railway helps the traversal as well. From here, especially from Normafa, there is a wonderful view of the capital.

RÓMAI PART (Roman Riverbank) It's a site of pilgrimage for those, who'd spend all their days on the riverbank, eating fried fish or lángos with a good cold pint of beer in the sunshine. It would be difficult to say how many shops and stands line the entire row of eateries, lángos buffets and hamburger joints that compete for the bellies of visitors here. The Római is also popular with cyclists and runners, and a lot of locals choose to walk their dogs here. (1031 Budapest, Római part)

OLIMPIAI PARK, between the newly renovated Kossuth Square and Jászai Square got an upgrade in 2014, and today it's a place where we gladly spend our precious free time. It's a multifunctional, open community space for picnics, relaxation, or even recreation. Now it has a boat-shaped climbing frame, a place for dogs to run, and a memorial in honour of the Olympic Games. (1055 Budapest, Olimpia park)
