What to Do in Budapest in 2 Days

Good to know before you travel to Budapest, Budapest consists of two parts: Buda and Pest. The two parts are separated by the river Danube. In 1873, the two cities Buda and Pest merged together into the city it is today: Budapest. Buda is located on the West side of the city and Pest on the eastern side. Buda and Pest are very different from each other.

While Pest is the buzzing side with lots of nightlife opportunities, restaurants and bars etc, Buda is the more quiet and more residential area. Buda is also the more hilly area, therefore it offers stunning views of the city. But at night, you definitely want to be in Pest – that’s where the fun is!

Pest is the go-to place for nightlife! In this Budapest lesbian guide, we will tell you about the LGBTQ rights in Hungary and where to go in “Lesbian” Budapest!

Hungary LGBTQ+ Rights

Hungary is still a conservative country but has improved a lot over the last years. The Hungarian society has always been focused on traditional families, therefore things can be hard in Hungary for local LGBTQ+ people. Same-sex couples don’t have the same legal rights as straight married couples, but homosexuality has been legal for over 60 years. In 2009, Hungary legalised registered partnerships for same-sex couples. Since 2018, transgenders are able to legally change gender and there are laws that ban discrimination on the basis of gender and sexual identity. Of course, the laws don’t always represent the public opinion, but it’s always important to keep the laws in mind when visiting a new country.
