Of the many things that give Budapest its unique flavour, the ruin bars are one of our favourites. They make night-life in Budapest exciting, colourful (literally), and always unexpected. The ruin bar phenomenon began in Budapest in the early 2000s, concentrated in the seventh district, and has been evolving ever since. What is a ruin bar? Join us to find out, and to explore this special aspect of Budapest&rsquo;s night-life scene. Learn (over a few drinks), the history that led to the development of these bars, the cultural and artistic significance of them, how they have influenced the city&rsquo;s entire night-life/drinking scene, and how they have impacted the neighbourhood.

While there is no direct Budapest Airport train to Terminal 2, the Train + 200E Bus COMBO is almost as easy.

 

The route below operates via the now-closed Terminal 1 (the references to Terminal 1 are intentional!).

  • Bus 200E runs between 04:00 to 23:00

Tip: if you make your connection at Ferihegy, and have time, try to see if you are able to spot any of Terminal 1's historic and restored modernism architecture.
