Wine Tasting: Did you know that Hungary is famous for its wines? Sample some of the best as you’re led through a tasting by one of the cozy wine bars’ friendly professionals. Candlelight is optional, but can definitely be arranged.

Cocktail Making Lesson: You’ll be teamed up with an experienced cocktail host to create 4 cocktails each, which of course, you’ll get to enjoy afterward. You’ll not only have fun, but you’ll learn how to make some classics to spice up date night for years to come!

Axe Throwing: This is the perfect activity for those of you who like a little friendly competition. See who can hit the first bullseye as you let the axes fly! Afterwards, toast to your union at the craft beer bar upstairs!

Now, let’s talk flowers! If you’re keen on picking up any flowers, know that a flower shop is called a virágbolt, so keep an eye out for these! There are whimsically decorated ones like Arioso on Király (which also has a tasty cafe), or smaller stalls that you’ll pass on the streets, often close to main transport hubs like Jászai Mári Tér or Deák.


Grab a Sweet Treat

Here are some to consider!
