Fraser Residence Family Friendly Hotel Budapest
Fraser Residence Family Friendly Hotel Budapest
Budapest is a world capital, an international tourist destination that holds many things for many people. While some may think of it as chiefly a spot for world-class music festivals, incredible gastronomic experiences, or out-of-this-world ruin pubs and bar crawls, the city does, in fact, have so much more to offer.
In particular, while the Hungarian capital is certainly home to the activities mentioned above, it also an extremely family-friendly city, with great lodgings and public transportation that together make it an ideal destination for you and your children.
Family friendly transportation and magical activities
In many ways, much of Budapest’s cityscape is, in and of itself, an ideal place to explore with a family, as it very much looks like a living, breathing version of some sort of fairy-tale European city come to life. From the panoramic view of the winding Danube River atop Gellért Hill to the gothic, otherworldly beauty and majesty of the Matthias Church, Fisherman’s Bastion, and the Parliament, from the riverside to the infinitely amusing Children’s Train, simply walking around Hungary’s capital can make you feel like you’re in a real-life version of Disneyland.
But in addition to all of this, the city also offers a number of attractions that are especially well-suited for families as well. These include spots such as Margaret Island, a huge park space located in the middle of the Danube River that offers plenty of green space for playing football, tag, flying kites, or walking dogs, as well as interesting and exciting sights such as medieval church ruins, Japanese gardens, and a huge water tower.
Likewise, Budapest’s Zoo, conveniently located in the capital’s City Park, is an extremely family-friendly spot to visit that is fun for children of all ages. At the Zoo, children can learn about the wonders of the natural world while getting an up-close and personal view of lions, tigers, bears, zebras, and hundreds of other plants, animals, and insects. In addition, the Zoo offers special programs throughout the day ranging from giraffe-feeding to displays of seal acrobatics, all of which are sure to excite young and old alike.
And of course, Budapest’s world-class public transportation system makes it quick and easy for your whole family to make their way around the Hungarian capital in order to check out all of these incredible sights. In particular, regardless of the length of your stay, the city’s public transportation authority has tickets and passes tailored to fit your family’s needs, ranging from 24-hour group passes to 15- or even 30-day individual tickets, all of which are quite reasonably priced.
Water Fun for the Whole Family
In addition to its many architectural, gastronomic, and visual wonders, one of its most interesting and unique features of Budapest is undoubtedly its culture of thermal baths. These locations, a mix of water-park and spa, offer a bit of everything for the whole family.
Believed to have been introduced by the Turks following their conquest of Hungary in the 1500s, thermal baths have become a deeply ingrained part of Hungarian culture over the past half millennia. While many swear by the medicinal powers of the spring water found at the country’s many such spas, others simply go to soak, socialize, and enjoy swimming, saunas, and hot baths in a relaxing, fun setting: alongside massages and steam baths for adults, these locations offer wave pools, water slides, and other water activities for children as well.
While Hungary as a whole has a great number of such baths worth checking out, a few of the most interesting in Budapest include the famous Széchenyi baths, the art nouveau Gellért Baths, and the elegant Rudas Baths. In addition, baths such as the Palatinus, located on Margaret Island, have both children’s pools and world-class water slides that are sure to keep the younger members of your family entertained all day long.
