NYT Journeys Bohemian Budapest Tour

The old-world grandeur of Budapest has always drawn a crowd, its architecture and historic credentials never failing to impress. These days, the city can also boast about its flourishing food scene (there are more Michelin-starred restaurants here than in any other city in Eastern Europe), and a glut of new locally led concept store openings. This four-hour Budapest adventure focuses on Pest with its shabby chic boulevards, edgy local artists, designers, great food, cocktails, and beer. Join us as we take an exclusive peek into an artists’ club that’s usually off-limits to the public, taste a Hungarian cocktail, and try the award-winning meat of the world-renowned Mangalica hog, and see Budapest through the eyes of a local, in partnership with The New York Times.
