Amongst peaceful vineyards

What is beyond landmarks?

If you were a tourist in your own country and were looking for off the beaten track places do you know where would you go? What spots would you hit with a friend coming from abroad to amaze him? These are the questions I asked myself earlier today while taking the public transport to my Italian teacher. Looking out of the window I was like, how beautiful this city is. I studied here for 4 years, then worked here for a few more and actually still living here at the moment but I’ve never devoted enough time to explore Budapest further. I know where to shop what, where to go out for a few drinks or a nice dinner, what are the major landmarks, but nothing beyond that. That’s not good enough. So I decided to add the ‘get to know your home country’ activity to my to do list. I am going to dedicate a full day going around the city where I live and find the hip places, art galleries, local designer stores, small spas, restaurants and side street bars. Sounds like a good starting point.

What about you? Do you really know your city?
