Whenever I make a break, the same question arises. Will it be worth buying a tourist card for this trip? Thus, I always analyze blogs and opinions of other users to decide what to do. Today I put myself on the other side and I will give you my assessment of whether it is worth buying the Budapest Card after my trip to the Hungarian capital and help you decide.

The Budapest Card is the tourist card of Budapest (and surroundings), it is the typical card that allows you to visit a number of museums and monuments for free (or discounts up to 150 establishments) in addition to providing free transportation.

The price of the Budapest Card ranges from 6490 HUF to 18990 HUF (currently the change in euros is 322 HUF → 1 euro). It comes in different modalities depending on the days you stay in Budapest and want to use it.

So that you can get an idea of ​​how you can get the most out of each euro invested I will tell you our experience with the budapest card 96 hours. How we are living nearby we know that we will return, so we decided to take advantage of “everything free” offered by the card (we only use a discount to calm my craving for “Kürtőskalács”).

We do not like to travel quickly, with stress, so you will see that the plan is designed to enjoy the things we did / saw and with time to rest and breathe. We left many things unexplored but enjoyed everything we did.
