Liberty Bridge Closed For Picnic
On four consecutive weekends from July 14, until August 5, this key Budapest bridge will be closed for traffic to let pedestrians picnic there if they wish, deputy mayor Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky said.

She said the project was launched in 2016 as a grassroots initiative, it has come to attract large crowds.

As in previous years there will be local bands playing there above the Danube, plus flamenco and swing dancers, zumba, salsa and yoga on 'Szabadság Híd'.

    We all love Budapest, but sometimes we also need to get out of the city, hop on a bicycle and spend some time outside. There are many routes to choose from; you can go on a day-trip and ride for about 30 km with frequent stops, throw in some sightseeing and have lunch on the way back. Or you can bike for just an hour or so, inside the city, maybe on the river bank to work on your stamina for longer trips. Check out these bike trips from funzine.hu.
