The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Get Decadent in Budapest


4. Insider’s Tip

Katapult Kávéház hosts daily Hungarian lessons for travelers.   

While English is pretty widely spoken here, it’s always helpful to learn a few phrases in the native language. Register for Fungarian’s crash course ($21), held at Katapult Kávéház (VII. Dohány u 1.a; 266-7226) daily at 2 p.m. The hour-long lesson covers numbers, getting around Budapest, and, of course, how to order a drink. The Fungarian crew also provides daily updated advice on their website to help tourists navigate both the city and Hungarian culture.
