Planning Tips

Top Tips

Aquincum ruins, unlike the Aquincum Museum on site, are only open April to October. If you can, it's worth timing your visit to the ruins to coincide with the Floralia festival in late May, when merry crowds of visitors dress up as Romans.

Local Experiences

  • Classical Music One of the finest and most intimate spots to hear a concert is the Óbuda Society venue.
  • Museum Visit the Béla Bartók Memorial House for 'free' by attending one of the regularly scheduled concerts there.
  • Cemetery Less known and visited than big brother Kerepes Cemetery in Pest, Farkasrét Cemetery is 'home' to a number of notables, including Béla Bartók.
