Excellent observation regarding cost of living and travel in the region. Our 5 years living in Eastern (some may say Central) Europe reaffirmed that.

Enjoy!

I have found eastern Europe to be very rewarding to the traveller, providing great culture at a reasonable price.

At that time, there was tremendous construction that was going on about 14 hour a day. Having a room without air conditioning, we didn’t get quiet enough sleep.

On the up side, prices were extremely low and the people were charming.

With the markets and street-side produce stands, there’s really no need to go to big grocery stores for fruits and veggies – you’re quite lucky!

In addition to the markets and baths, we just walked around the city and enjoyed evening views the city and castle. We tried to go to the Hungarian House of Wines, but it was closed. Quite disappointing since we had heard such good things about it. Apparently it’s moving, but there was no sign indicating when and to where. Hopefully we’ll catch that and the Gellert Bath House next visit.

Though I live in Debrecen, and not Budapest, I always get the best produce right around the corner. Forget big grocery stores. The other day I got an a eggplant, onions, pototoes, apples, bananas, a dozen eggs, 3 bell peppers, a cucumber all for less that $7. And food is always better tasting when fresh, too, I find!.
Also, I do love Gellert bath houses in Budapest. They are one of the oldest and most famous in Budapest. Try them next time! What else did you see in my neck of the woods?

Lori: In tourist destination cities, we tend to seek out the secondary open markets that are geared more towards locals (i.e., you won’t find a lot of food souvenirs, trinkets and tchotchkes). Fortunately, we had a little bit of inside market intelligence thanks to the friends we stayed with.

Tony: I think your diet will be more effective if you block your amazing ten-layer lasagne instead.

We were in Budapest for the first time in Sept. We were really surprised at the amount of tourists in the Central Market. The food was wonderful, but it filled up quickly as the morning went on. We enjoyed langos there. Yum!

I wish I had known about the other market. It sounds really interesting. We were only there about 24 hours so definitely didn’t get to see all we wanted to.
