City Essentials

Sun-drenched summers, enchanting autumns, crisp winters and vibrant springs, Hungary is a year-round delight. Spring (April-June) and Autumn (September-October) are considered the best seasons for visiting, when the weather is mild and the landscape is in full bloom or adorned in hues of autumn colours. While the peak summer (July-August) is warm and filled with festivities, it can also be crowded and prices may be higher. Winter months can be chilly but come with the charm of snow-laced streets. Equipped with temperature and rainfall charts on the LycaFly website, you can plan your visit to Hungary around the time that suits you best.


From tranquil wine bars to buzzing night clubs, Hungary offers a nightlife scene as diverse as its historic landscapes. Start your evening with some traditional Hungarian folk music at a local tavern before diving into the energy of Budapest's famed 'ruin bars', vibrant venues found in the city's abandoned buildings. Explore the thriving club scene with venues like the iconic Szimpla Kert, or take it easy with a romantic Jazz evening at the Budapest Jazz club. For a slice of culture, cap off your night with an enchanting opera performance at the Budapest Opera House. Whatever your speed, Hungary’s cities promise a night to remember.
