What is Off The Beat?
Parts of Budapest have been fundamentally transformed by mass tourism, making it difficult for visitors to discover the side of the city locals know, places they go to. Off the Beat is here to help you. Some of the featured places fall within, others outside the main attractions. You will also find practical information about Budapest, such as neighborhood descriptions, to enhance your experience. Enjoy your stay!
I was born and raised in Budapest, and returned to the city in 2012 after nine years spent living in New York. We Hungarians are a prideful people - we love to share the best of our selves and country with inquiring minds.
