There is something mystical about this city: Budapest… Something you can’t really describe and what makes it hard to clearly define: why the attraction?!
The glamour of the monarchical capital, the pompous shining of the Old Lady behind the rust of the ages, echoing the laughter of noble women and gentlemen in the salons of the crystal palaces filled with fragments of blurred songs sounding so familiar… and yet, the young, vivid and harsh party place, the city that wants to live like there’s no tomorrow with flashing lights and beats of the night, with pubs and bars echoing the laughter of guys and gals enjoying life…
Joie de vivre! Yes, that’s it exactly: the eternal “joie de vivre” present throughout the ages! This is what maybe best characterizes this city. Come, experience it and be a part of it, because…
