What to Wear in Budapest in July

Summer afternoons in Budapest are warm and summer attire works well.

However, nights and early morning hours can still be chilly so always bring a light jacket or windbreaker as well as some long-sleeve tops and long pants.

Don’t forget to bring some comfortable walking shoes as in the old town the streets are cobbled and unsuitable for high-heels.

Things to Do in Budapest in July

Since it's the middle of the summer, this is an excellent time to consider taking a pay-what-you-wish Budapest walking tour.

With 18 different pools that are located both indoors and outdoors, the Széchenyi Spa Baths are one of the best spots to visit during the warmer months.

If it's an especially hot day, you might want to consider going on an evening sightseeing cruise down the historic river Danube.

Another idea is to visit Margaret Island to see the rose garden, a Japanese garden, a musical fountain, and many other beautiful attractions.
