“You will miss your family, you will miss your friends…” – Everybody told me so before I moved to this amazing city and so far, I don’t feel homesick at all. Budapest feels like my hometown and I believe in my past life, I’ve been living right in this place.
Wide streets, beautiful architecture, somehow it reminds me of Prague, but still, it has different vibe. It’s more laid-back, quiet and life goes pretty slowly around here. People are chill, never ever rushing anywhere and most of the times, they are very friendly. I got wrong idea about Hungarians before coming here, as majority of foreigners characterize them as cold, unfriendly and rude. Well, for me, I’ve never met a Hungarian like that! Everyone is happy to help and try the best they can to communicate with you.
As I’m a student here, I have a lot of opportunities to explore this city in every possible way: parties, clubs, bars, cafes and restaurants, but more importantly – sightseeing! There is so much to see in Budapest, so much to explore. In the begining I remember walking 13 km or even more at the end of the day and every single step was worth it.
If you ever decide to visit Budapest and then go to see Buda castle, go there during night! The view is spectacular and completely different from what you can see during the day time. It feels surreal and like a fairytale.
Luckily, my dorm is right in the center of the city, so I get to explore this wonderful place every day, every time I want to. As you could’ve understood, I can’t stop taking photos, especially, if you find a partner in crime!:)
So far, this city has treated me very kind and we have 3 more years to go!
I post on my Instagram stories pretty much every day so follow up 🙂
