Buona Bologna, buona vita – the last night in Bologna

The party mod and party mood in Il Piratello - Pubtourist

Seeing Via Belvedere¬†didn’t turn out to be the only¬†highlight of the pub life in Bologna at the end. I had to go and experience Via del Pratello to have it all. It was a long and incredibly crowded street with bars, pubs, street food bistros on both sides and many-many people on the street till Continue Reading

Il Calice, Bologna – A real energizer among the tourist sights

Il Calice from outside in Bologna - Pubtourist

Bologna has many faces considering every single feature a city can possibly have. You can get charmed by the historical downtown. You can get lost in maze-like, small and very crowded side streets, full with greengrocers and other vendors before you can escape and arrive to wide open squares again with centuries long sights around you.

Lompos Uszkár in Pécs - Pubtourist

This is how I kept continue my pub discovery in Pécs after Nappali and István Pince. Here comes the story of Korhely Pub and Restaurant and Lompos Uszkár, a summer party place in a museum garden.

The pub life of Pécs, the fifth largest city of Hungary #1

Király street is the main street and also the main pub street of Pécs - Pubtourist

P√©cs, the fifth largest Hungarian city is worth to visit for many reasons. It has beautiful natural environment¬†because of the Mecsek mountain range,¬†it has a rich history (which is still in the air through the¬†buildings and monuments), very charming small streets, a tidy downtown…what else? What else? Ahh, I almost forgot, there is a wide Continue Reading

Alto tasso in Bologna – Temple of the late nighters

The inside of Alto Tasso in Bologna - Pubtourist

Lets face it, even from the perspective of the pubs and bars, Bologna has a lot of flavors! A city this size should have all the possible genres even over the stereotypes. A bohemian party street belongs to the overall picture. In Bologna Via del Pratello is that street. Alto tasso on its side branch is a Continue Reading

Balatonvil√°gos, Hungary – The purgatory of the hedonists

The Hedon Beers of Balatonvilagos - Pubtourist

So far, I wrote about bigger towns of Lake Balaton like Siófok and Keszthely. But our popular summer destination is mostly surrounded by smaller settlements with a few thousand or in some cases even only a few hundred inhabitants. As third target in summer of 2016 I pointed out Balatonvilágos, a tiny town with ca. Continue Reading

The opposite ends of Lake Balaton #1: Keszthely

Lake Balaton with swans in Keszthely - Pubtourist

After the eventful discovery of Siófok, I stopped by two more times last summer and had a closer look at the pub life of two other towns at Lake Balaton, the largest lake of Central Europe. Keszthely in the northeastern corner and Balatonvilágos in the southwestern corner were two very different experience. Lets see the first one! Lake Balaton Continue Reading

Siófok, Lake Balaton РThe local pub and the party promenade

Trees in Hungarian national colors in Si√≥fok, PetŇĎfi s√©t√°ny - Pubtourist

Si√≥fok has an award-winner main square, interesting statues and a beautiful Balaton shore, but when its name is mentioned, most of the young people think of its famous party promenade, PetŇĎfi s√©t√°ny. I’ve spent three days to experience the difference between the already known party promenade and the real local bars. On the last night Continue Reading

Siófok, Balaton: a collection of pub genres

Si√≥fok, M√ľller's Hostel and its bar on Emerich K√°lm√°n promenade

Siófok had an entire collection of pub genres. After the first four stops the town had still more to offer. It was a rainy, grey Sunday afternoon. You would never guess,that this has been July. I was about to continue my discovery with real local pubs as long as possible, and only go to the party promenade Continue Reading

Si√≥fok backstage #2 – The daily pub life of Hungary’s summer capital

The pubs of a Si√≥fok sized Hungarian town are already various like the colors of the rainbow. It’s big enough to find every possible pub genre, but it’s small enough to find only one or two pieces of every type. Of course in this case the overall picture won’t stay untouched by the fact that Continue Reading
