“How Budapest’s historic Jewish Quarter became the city’s mecca of cool”

 

“Fifteen years ago, Budapest’s now-pulsating seventh district — also known as Erzsébetváros — was a derelict neighborhood filled with abandoned buildings.Then, a sprawling old factory was converted into Szimpla Kert, a “ruin pub” with rooms sporting thrift-store furniture and a massive outdoor patio.

 

The new pub helped transform the city’s Jewish Quarter into a mecca of cool, underground culture.”

“Wandering Budapest 7th District”

 

“Budapestflow is the natural progression of Attila’s passion for wandering. ‘Flow’ means getting lost in the details of the city – be it a stunning art nouveau façade, a street art piece or a hidden garden. It means grasping the soul of the district, reading its past and present on the walls, and listening to the thousands of stories that make this district unique in the Budapest panorama.

“The perfect weekend in Budapest”

 

“There are so many ruin pubs here and I like to share the local side to them. One of my favourite is Szimpla Kert. In the evenings, Szimpla is very touristy, but every Sunday morning they have a farmers’ market with only local produce, from marmalade to sausages – and locals go.”

“Ruin bars of Budapest – how bohemian bars turned one Budapest district into an island of creativity”

 

 

“As we walk towards Hungary’s most famous pub through a quiet street with boarded-up properties and graffiti covering the doorways, local guide Attila explains how Budapest’s district VII was an eerie place a decade ago. “Nobody would come here; it was a ghost town in the center of the city,” he says.”

“Uncovering the gems of the Jewish Quarter with Budapestflow”

 

 

“We discovered a company called Budapestflow, owned and ran by the amazing Attila, he offers an alternative ruin bar tour, not only visiting the popular ruin bars but also takes you to sites around the Jewish quarter that many tourists rarely visit or don’t even know exist.

We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit the Jewish quarter in Budapest and uncover its hidden gems, rather than sitting in a ruin bar getting drunk”

“Ruin Pubs and Beyond: Exploring Budapest’s 7th District”

 

“If you’re coming to Budapest, visiting some of the ruin pubs is probably on the top of your list. But did you know that Budapest’s 7th district offers so much more than a great night out in these cool bars? In fact, the neighborhood is full of interesting storesdesign shopsstreet art and restaurants.

 

We were recently invited to explore the 7th district with Budapestflow that offers alternative tours for visitors who are interested in learning about the area beyond the ruin pubs.”

“Beyond the ruinpubs in dynamic District VII”

 

“It would be easy to label the burgeoning creative scene in Budapest’s District VII as merely just another hipster fad. In fact many do. Yet when walking around District VII (the old Jewish neighborhood) in this eclectic metropolis, one becomes aware of two things: young Hungarians are an incredibly creative bunch, and the proliferation of funky shops and bars here is more a case of working with what you’ve got than a passing trend.”

“Jewish Quarter and ruinpubs”

 

 

“There are hundreds of guided tours in Budapest and this one is not the only one offering a Jewish quarter wanderings. However, this one has something special to offer and aims at a bit different audience (sorry, stag party boys!). The biggest advantage of this tour is the size of the group and the fact that it can be tailor-made according to your wishes. So, what I experienced is just one version of it.”

“Sightseeing re-engineered”

 

“We organise alternative city walks in Budapest for tourists and expats in small groups and we focus mainly on the 7th district of Budapest which is known as the party district of the capital, but we do not organise pub crawls on purpose, because we want to show our guests the alternative art scene of the city: street art, design shops, flea markets, community centers and the cultural perspective of the ruinpub scene.”
