Activities in March Budapest (9-15)
Budapest is getting ready for the last week in winter (yes!) and I have brought many concerts, art events and more to attend.
Szentendre Skanzen will open this coming weekend, I strongly recommend to visit and enjoy the events – this can be great fun for the whole family and you can learn many things about Hungary. Easter is also around the corner, there is a great egg painting course for those who love traditions and unique experiences.
Music: there are a few events mentioned in this post, but check the one dedicated to 41 live concerts too, you can find that here.
Budapest Photo Festival is cracking on and there are many other exhibitions opening and closing as well in the city. Two about religion and we have also fashion and history and some beautiful paintings by Mara Kinga.
