7. IBS – International Business School
Actually, when I did make lunch with Employee in Microsoft, I understand that if you have a goal or something to look forward to, then – even if you feel that you’re not in a good place right now – you are more likely to be able to see your current situation or circumstances as a pathway towards future and to find value in the present moment, they monthly are salary 2000 + euro, bicycles, simple t-shirts, simple eatings, is daily life, that’s a good thing. “Mindfulness & Livin in the Moments” – We live like tuna fish – as though we would die if we were to stop moving!
2. Heroes’ Square
Heroes’ Square (Hosök tere), which marks the end of Andrássy Avenue is home to an iconic monument which features depictions of the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars, who are believed to have led the Hungarian people from central Asia to the Carpathian basin.
3. Margaret Island
There are a number of companies which rent pedal carts, golf carts, and other self-powered vehicles so that you can explore the island properly. A rubber-coated 5.5 km running track encircles the island and is a popular jogging spot for runners who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. One of the most famous features of the island is the “music fountain”, from which water regularly “dances” in time to classical music.
4. Hungarian Parliament Building
Although the impressive building looks fantastic from every angle, to see the whole building in its full glory, it is worth viewing it from the other side of the Danube. You will need identification to get in, and your bag may be searched on entry. Tours of certain areas of the building are available daily and run in different languages.
5. Gellért Baths
One of the grandest spas in the city is the Gellert Bath and Spa center, which includes an open-air pool (which turns into a wave pool), an effervescent swimming pool, a Finnish sauna, and a range of other saunas and plunge pools.
Massages and other spa treatments are also available at an extra fee. The whole spa was extensively renovated in 2008 to bring the baths back to their former glory. The baths are open all week for mixed bathing.
6. Danube Promenade
This stretch of the Danube walkway goes from the Elizabeth Bridge to the Chain Bridge and is perfect for those who want a short, but interesting walk. Looking over towards to Buda side of the river, you will see the Buda Castle, the Liberty Statue on Gellert Hill and the Fisherman’s Bastion. On the Promenade side of the river, you can enjoy restaurants, cafes, Szechenyi Istvan Square and a range of different sculptures, including the Little Princess.
7. St. Stephen’s Basilica
Those with a head for heights can travel up to the base of the dome and look out over the city. On a clear day, this is a great vantage point from which to survey Budapest from the air. Classical music concerts and organ concerts regularly take place inside the Basilica and sometimes spill out into the square outside. Fun fact: You can book an Organ Concert in the Basilica.
8. Fisherman’s Bastion
Although the Fisherman’s Bastion looks like a medieval monument, it was actually built in the early 20th century in a neo-Gothic style, specifically to act as a panoramic viewing platform across the Danube, Margaret Island, and Pest.
9. Central Market Hall
Locally grown fruits and veg, and locally sourced meats are found on the lower floors, and souvenirs including lace, chess sets, and leather goods are available on the upper floors. As well as individual ingredients, it is possible to pick up homemade local delicacies like goulash and langos from the food stall upstairs.
10. Liberty Statue Budapest
The statue was first erected in 1947 to commemorate the Soviet troops who lost their lives liberating the country, however, the engraving was later changed so that it commemorated “all who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of Hungary”. The panoramic views from underneath the statue are unparalleled, and help to make the walk to the top of the hill well worth it.
11. Széchenyi Thermal Baths
The Széchenyi Baths complex is the largest “medicinal” bath center in Europe. The waters are rich in sulfates, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, and fluoride, which are believed to help patients with degenerative joint illnesses and other medical issues.
For those who just want to enjoy the relaxing powers of the thermal pools, there are a variety of different thermal pools on site, as well as saunas and steam rooms. Massages and beauty treatments are also available at an additional fee.
The two outdoor pools are fantastic places to visit on a cold, dark night, as the steam rising from the hot water makes the whole place seem wonderfully mysterious.
12. Hungarian National Museum
The Hungarian National Museum is home to thousands of exhibits detailing the history, art, religion, and archaeology of the country, including exhibitions from areas which are now considered to be outside of Hungary’s borders. The spectacular Neoclassical museum building itself is worth looking at, even if you do not plan on touring the inside.
13. Buda Castle Hill Funicular
A system of weights and counterweights is used to help to raise the carriages up and down the hill. The funicular is the fastest way to get to the top of Castle Hill and is exceedingly popular because of its panoramic views out across the Danube. (You can also get there with this Segway tour)
14. Dohány Street Synagogue
This synagogue is currently one of the largest in the world outside of Israel, despite the fact that Hungary’s Jewish population was significantly depleted during World War II. In the garden, you can see a weeping willow memorial, whose metal leaves bear the names of some of those killed during the war. There is also a memorial to Swedish diplomat Royal Wallenberg, who helped to save hundreds of Hungarian Jews from concentration camps and ghettos.

So in every moment of life, should be living your ikigai. I am only human so I don’t achieve this perfectly all the time, but I would be happy if I can manage 80 percent of the time. Besides, imperfection can be beautiful, too.
Ikigai can be about the joy a person finds in living day-to-day, without which their life as a whole would not be a happy one. Event time needs the only way to find your ikigai is to have a continuous dialogue with yourself. You just bump into it and when you know, you know. You pursue it even if the rest of the world wouldn’t understand. Ikigai comes from within. I believe if you make decisions that go against your ikigai, you will lose it, and the result will likely be disappointing. You find your ikigai by being true to your feelings, by staying true to your ikigai even in times of difficulty, you will be able to make better decisions, and positive results will follow.
I hope – will inspire you to think about your own ikiagi.
Touches ikigai is something you do even though no one asked you to, simply because you want to. Being a life-designer, when something isn’t quite working, you take another approach, slow down to change the dots, end up discovering something new. Just, say I’m convinced true if you make cheating and doesn’t love, even one day is not working, trust and say I’m convinced true,
So, Would you like to Share your ikigai?
