How are kids received by the citizens of Budapest? Friendly? Welcome?
Like Rick (and many of you), my wife and I believe very strongly in the power and education that comes from travel. We have taken our 4 kids (ages 10 to 2) to many different European cities over the last several years (Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Madrid, Barcelona, London). Many, if not all, of those cities are known for being welcoming to kids, but not all of them lived up to that reputation. Our kids are fairly well-behaved and have had some experience with traveling. In fact, we've had success doing all of the major "touristy" things people do in these locations (museums, nice dinners, palace tours, walks, etc.).
We are considering a trip to Budapest and Vienna (10-12 nights with 5-6 in each city) for our next adventure!
Are kids well-received in Budapest (and Vienna - I realize I am posting in the Hungary section)?
How is Budapest with race (we have a mixed-race family with Blacks, Asians, and Whites)?
Example: I know this is impossible to predict because there are a lot of factors, but in general some cultures are more welcoming than others....
How would a restaurant owner or small shop owner in Budapest react if a conspicuous, mixed-race family of six with kids unexpectedly walked in? Would they greet this family warmly and roll out the red carpet or would they panic or be secretly wishing the family had gone elsewhere. Again, no judgments here. Some cultures are different than others. Just want to go somewhere we would be welcome.
No need to post about children activities in each city as we can save that for another time.
