Why you should spend this night in Budapest!
Today, June 21 is the longest day, which in ancient times Slavs celebrated with the holiday. According to Christian tradition, this holiday was "moved" two weeks later and is celebrated on the day of Ivan Kupala. And if you want to have a good time today, go to Hungary, because on the longest day of the year the "Night of Museums" is held there, when all the secret "doors" to the culture are opened to visitors and residents of the country. The choice of programs is so big that it is impossible to see everything, so we recommend to visit four places.
- Railway Museum (Hungary is famous not only for its "Ikaruses", but for other transport too. Over the area of about 70 thousand square meters, there are more than 100 trains - choose your favorite and return to the days of the monarchy. Be sure to take pictures with the Orient Express). Address: 1142 Budapest, Tatai utca 95.
- National Dance Theatre (the building, where it is located, used to be a monastery, and when it was rebuilt, even Beethoven himself was there. The troupe is known far outside the country. Today, virtually every hour, viewers can see how well a person can express their feelings through dance). Address: 1014 Budapest, Színház utca 1-3.
- Museum of Fine Arts (it houses the world-famous art gallery with works by such renowned artists as Raphael, Rembrandt, El Greco, Monet, Cezanne, and today, the temporary exhibition of Toulouse-Lautrec too). Address: 1146 Budapest, Dózsa György út 41.
- Vajdahunyadvár Complex (over the last decade, it has become an essential part of the tour route in Budapest, and this time, you can join a walk through the rooms, which are mostly hidden from the average tourist, and find out the origin of the name of the tower "Be not afraid"). Address: 1146 Budapest, Vajdahunyad vá.
Note: the price of a ticket for a child is 2 euros, for adult - 5 euros, the price includes use of public transport, and programs start at 18:00 hours and continue until 02:00. Be ready for a lot of people, as last year, over 300 thousand tickets were sold! Take along water and a good mood, this night will be unforgettable!
