The ruinpubs are the pulsating heart of Budapest, the gardens of creativity, cultural and civil hubs, the hidden artist caves, a mingle of everything what we love and what you will love about Budapest. Do not be fooled by the evening pub crawls – they sure are nice and part of the bigger picture but ruin bars and gardens are soo much more than a place to get fuzzy in your head and enjoy Budapest nightlife.
Wanna see for yourself? Join us on one of our tours.
If you don’t know what to do on Sunday morning, or if you thought that the Budapest party district is in full go only on Saturday nights, then come with us! We’ll show you the charming morning faces of the coolest places, where jazz plays softly in the background, you can browse antique and retro objects.
"I dropped by to Budapest for just 36 hours so we had a little mix of the Ruinpubs Tour and the Sunday Hang Over. After so many years of passing through the city I thought Budapest won't surprise me anymore, but - yes, indeed - for once I skipped all the boring must-sees and got a bitter-sweet taste of the best arty pubs, squat-ish bars, off-track markets, street art walls and design cafes. The guide, Atilla, is a great and funny storyteller who won't force me to speed up with taking pictures. These were the places I would generally hang out around if I lived in Budapest. And now I feel like I'll be coming back with my own arty stickers to put around. "
"Instead of using usual routes, full of historical monuments, it shows living places, such as SzimplaMarket (a marketplace and a pub located in a dilapidated building) and focuses on the modern life of the Hungarian capital. At the same time, it blends fun with more serious subjects in the right proportions (the visit in a synagogue has been very touching). In short, it is a great way of getting a feel of a city instead of merely seeing it."
It is the little things that keep Budapest alive and make us breathe. Enjoy our handpicked selection of places and events where you can experience that unmistakable magical flow in Budapest.
