When to visit Budapest?

The city of Budapest is definitely a perfect place for one to have his vacation anytime, and for any season of the year. You might think that you should restrict your vacation only during the holiday season, but with Budapest, festivities are present all year long.

Your first choice would usually be to go on your much-needed vacation during the summer break. In that case, this city has a number of events and festivities for you to enjoy, one of which is the large-scale cultural festival, the National Gallop held every June during Whit Sunday and Whit Monday, at the Heroes’ Square, as a celebration of Hungarian tradition. Here you’ll find traditional Hungarian horseback riding shows and hussar traditions. Hungarian citizens aged 18 or older can take part in the horse race.

If you are a movie buff, then you will find that spring in Budapest is perfect for you. On April, the Titanic Film Festival, the largest film awarding ceremony in Hungary will be held. The most prestigious award, called Breaking Waves is given to the most innovative and awe-inspiring movie every year.
Every October, the Budapest Autumn Festival is held. If you appreciate modern art and contemporary music, then you should seriously consider coming to this event.

Last but certainly not least is Budapest’s winter celebrations. Tired of your usual Christmas huddled up in a fireplace, under a Christmas tree and listening to “Deck the Halls” over and over again? Then you should try celebrating Christmas in the city. The best Christmas fair is at Vorosmarty Square.
