Sziget, passport of love

Sziget festival


A show in a show

Sziget. Clearly, not the easiest word to pronunce, as probably 99% of the words you see around since you land here in Hungary. And even so, you begin to remember it quite fast, ‘cause everyone is speaking about it. It’s 9th of August and even the Citadel, usally crowded in this time of the year, is quite silent. Yes, the noise is elsewhere.


Hold on a second, if the Citadel is not crowded, doesn’t mean there is no movida apart from Sziget. I’m not gonna take so much time describing the ruin pubs, ’cause you can read about it in any good travel blog. Our personal experience was a crowd queueing endlessly outside a famous ruin pub. We decided to find some “less famous” pub, and it was still a good one. Thanks Hungary and thanks hungarians.
