We asked our own Budapest bloggers about their favorite independent Budapest blogs & websites. Here’s a list of their tips in alphabetical order!
Best of Budapest
If you’re looking for a blog that provides you with some of the hidden and not-so-hidden gems of Budapest, then Best of Budapest is a blog you should check out. The blog deals mostly with traveling through the city, finding all the interesting, new and classic spots that Budapest has to offer, compiling them together in fun and informative articles. The blog also writes about the culture and history of the city and provides readers with fun events to check out in Budapest.
Budapest by Locals
As the name suggests, Budapest by Locals is a blog run by locals for visitors and other locals. The blog is an independently run project, and offers readers advice through city guides, on cool places to eat, events to check out, cultural information, accommodation, and tips of what to do and where to go within Budapest.
Budapest is a city that is filled with a rich wellspring of cultural history and on the blog Disappearing Budapest, readers are given informative and interesting think pieces on the more hidden and undiscovered cultural features and buildings of Budapest. The mission of the blog is to record these fast disappearing spaces to ensure that the history and the culture of the city is preserved in some form, and the articles are incredibly well thought out and highly informative.
Egy Nap a Városban
When it comes to Budapest city blogs, Egy Nap a Városban (in Hungarian – translation here) is one of the most well known independent local blogs about the city. The blog was first started in 2010 in an effort to draw more attention to the beauty of Budapest and has since become quite popular. Városban provides readers with everything one might be interested in checking out while in the city, from entertainment, food, and tours to places to stay and upcoming events within Budapest.
Looking for a fun, contemporary Budapest blog that reads like a magazine? Then you should check out Funzine (in Hungarian – translation here), a lifestyle and culture blog by and for the locals of Budapest. Funzine is a blog that promotes and provides new and fresh content in both classic places and new but does so with a hip and modern twist. They provide quality articles that are quick and easy to read on the go but also post about places to eat and events to check out when in Budapest.
Catch Budapest is a blog by a young couple living in Budapest. They write about how the city lives, works, eats, drink and functions. And they’re also trying to bring the Hungarian language closer to our readers (and show them that it’s actually not as difficult as it seems!). One half of the bloggers is a native and the other is learning the language as they’re writing
