Budapest is an overwhelmingly generous tourist destination, with countless attractions to be explored and objectives to be admired. Thus, one can easily imagine a stay in Budapest comes at a price in case they want to discover as much as possible of what the capital of Hungary makes available from a tourist point of view.
The Budapest Card is an ideal tourist tool which, if used, gives visitors the opportunity to save substantial amounts of money. It is, at the same time, a manner of drawing tourists to Budapest, since, indeed, it is available only to tourist purposes alone.
For instance, by presenting their own Budapest Card, visitors can benefit from discounts at museums, public spas, certain restaurants. On top of that, the holding of a card allows visitors to travel for free by all the public means of transport managed by BKV. Other discounts refer to the ones made by the companies which organize sundry sightseeing tours (by bus or by boat). Certain events can also be attended for less if, again, tourists present a valid card. The discounts can vary considerably according to the price policies practiced by the objectives to be visited.
Speaking of validity, the card comes in two versions: a 48-hour validity period, as well as a 72-hour validity period. The card is easy to use, and it can be purchased from hundreds of selling points: most of the tourist information offices, plenty of BKV metro ticket selling points, train stations and so on. On top of that, it can be purchased online.
