City pass is essential for transport. Thats all you need to know.

Discounts for the Zoo and the amusement park as well.

What's the story with accomodation?

We're thinking of going but are a bit late on the organisation front this year.

I think after a recent city based festival we've decided apartment festivals are the way forward. But what are prices/availability/distance from festival like generally?

MMMMMMMM

Cheap Dreher.

That video makes me want to go back tomorrow, and I'm going to Primavera Porto next week.


Cheap Superbock? MMMMMM ;)

We love Porto, so we might have been tempted by this one ourselves if it didn't clash with Download! :(

Cheapish digs a plenty in Pest. Prices tend to go up when Sziget and the F1 are on though but still a lot better than western European rates. Straightforward for getting back from the island - HEV train to Arpad Hid, Margit Hid or Battyany Ter and walk across the nearest bridge. No more than 30 mins. Or taxi straight from the island for £6. There is accomodation on the Buda side but much less of it and more expensive. Plenty websites with options and maps.

All info about the CityPass can be found here. Almost all info about the spas can be found here. I recommend Szechenyi (the largest spa in Europe with 3 outdoor pools from 26 to 38 °C, 15 indoor pools from 18 to 40 °C and 10 saunas and steam chambers from 45 to 100 °C), Gellert (with an outdoor wave pool as well as several thermal pools and saunas) and Lukacs (with a rooftop terrace, several swimming pools, thermal baths and saunas). Rudas is nice too, but only indoors, so not good for suntanning. Kiraly is known to be the gay spa.

I think I'm going to buy several 2-day CityPasses since a 2-day CityPass is cheaper than a ticket with 20% discount for Szechenyi and Gellert. On the days I don't get free entrance, I'm probably going to discover some swimming pools. I've already been to Palatinus, which is a cool swimming pool, but I think the spas are better.

Early next week is my guess. Are you going to Download as well?

Seems we are at exactly the same fests this year; Bearded Theory, Strummercamp, Download, Sziget?

Yeah, I sure am - and it looks like it's gonna be a wet one! :( So it looks like the Metal Stage lineup will be a surprise (hopefully, a good surprise!) for when we get back home on Monday ;)

@lambokorn How was download? From what I can gather the music was really good but the weather, organisation and prices within the festival were absolutely terrible!

the bands were awsome the whole weekend as a whole was great! the weather was horrible on thursday n friday morning but that was the last time it rained, it was really really muddy but they did an amazing job in the arena every night to clear it all and put straw down and by sunday the ground was back to normal, and the weather just kept improving from friday morning too, by sunday everyone was walkin round in just shorts getting burnt to fuck (was a little too hot tbh) considering no-one at the festival botherd to pack any sunblock due to the weather forcast lol if you want to have a nosey at some pics ive uploaded 200 on facebook its set to public so you will be ok to view it http://www.facebook.com/#!/media/set/?set=a.10150958594489281.443596.511579280&type=1
