Layered Beauty and restless ambition


A walk along the Danube shows off the beauty of Budapest and will capture your attention immediately, but the creative pulse will inspire and stick with you for a long time. Beyond the architectural delights lies a hungry, emerging creative scene. The rise of nationalism and media censorship threatens to stifle this artistic growth, but the younger generation isn't moving away or giving up on the scene they have worked so hard to create. Welcoming and entrepreneurial, those connected to the scene are eager to show off all that Budapest has to offer. These designers, musicians, brewers and entrepreneurs are making waves.


Want to experience the creative energy yourself...

  • Drink a beer at a ruin pub

  • See a film at one of the best arthouse cinemas

  • Pop in and linger at a cafe
