rain is still on - so chocolate

as i promised, i will continue the tips for this bad weather. if you are already bored of the tea of the sirius, you should try noir choco bar. yes, it is what it seems to be, a place full of (belgian) chocolate. you can choose maybe from 50 different hot chocolate, i already tried some of them, and they are hell good. i can't say exact prices, but as i remember a cup of chocolate is around 400-500 forints, so around 2 euros. but totally worth it. of course you can find also tea, coffee, milk shakes, hot cocoa and even alcoholic drinks. and chocolate fondue (!) for 1800 forints.
you can also buy many tipes of special chocolate products.
the place has beautiful warm colours, funny paintings on the wall, cozy pillows.
you can find it on the corner of the hegedű street and the paulay ede street. it's close to the liszt square (map). and it's also on the basement level (:

autumn tea

well, this weather is awful. you are not so lucky making holidays now in budapest... i help you how to survive. first i recommend you my favourite tea-place. it is called sirius teaház, its website is just in hungarian, as always. also not very easy to find it, it's located in a small street, in the basement level, without any well-marked sign. so you have to know the exact adress: 13 Bródy Sándor street, near the national museum (map). it's open every day between 12 and 22.

the teas are between 420-450 forints (less than 2 euros) for 400 ml, and you can choose from many-many tipes. the best thing of the place is that you can drink your tea in secret corners, in the so-called wardrobe, in the top of everyone, you have to climb, you have to sit on the floor, take off your shoes. the whole place is really cozy, just take a look on every part. you will love it!

a cheap movie?

yes, it's possible this weekend. i know i tell you a bit late, but until sunday you can go to cinema for 360 forints, which is about 1,40 euros. it is true for almost all of the cinemas in budapest, but hurry up, because sometimes they sell out all the tickets. the event is called celebration of the cinema (moziünnep), and it has an official site just in hungarian.
