Fortunately there isn't much of tourist interest north of Lehel ter. At Lehel ter there is a pretty interesting market if anyone is interested. It would be great if they kept at least one of the old Stalin Wagons running on the M3. I remember when they ran on the M2 as well. Such character. If you are in Budapest you need to get on one while you still can....

Christa, you need to buy that apartment soon. Vacation rentals are under attack in Budapest but the current ones are being grandfathered. Right now just a couple of districts but in time ...... who knows......

christa - oddly enough, my client from california is likely selling his budapest flat in the 7th. I will connect you if interested in learning more - it is not on the market yet.

I believe that the 7th is one of the districts with restrictions (i will check). But just for grins, I'd be interested (I own two in the 6th) ....

Of course my favorite line is the 1, truly like stepping back in time to a beautiful era, but I admit a certain fondness for the 3 and all that it, too, evokes. At least the 3 will still go as far as Nyugati palyaudvar, can't say I've ever had a reason to go any farther.

As much as I would dearly love to own a flat in Budapest now is not the time, alas. As long as I can keep visiting annually that will have to be enough for the present.

Christa, next trip, go one more stop beyond Nyugati to and look for the Lehel Market. I don't suggest this for "tourists" but you have been to Budapest often enough now so that you may want to extend your reach a bit. In good weather make the 10 minute walk from the Lehel Market to the new Vak Varju in District 13. They have this most incredible patio area; huge. The walk will take you through some pretty nice higher income (but still high density) residential areas in District 13. If you do an evening dinner at Vak Varju i suspect you would be the only tourist sitting under the stars. The food is mostly Hungarian and the service is good as are the prices (now that you are out of the tourist zone).

Adding to my itinerary notes, both the market and restaurant sound interesting and I do like venturing out beyond the tourist region. I'll have 6 days next trip, going to be there for the wonderful Museum festival the 3rd weekend of May.
