Where to watch Euro 2012 in Budapest?

The European Championship is currently on and if you are coming to Budapest you might be worried about where you are going to see the matches with your favorite team. You have no need to worry, because almost wherever you go in Budapest you will find televisions showing all the matches, both in restaurants, pubs and similar places.

If you would like to see the matches though in a place where people gather together to see the matches, then we have some recommendations for you.

1) The Liberty Square
Just in the area between the Hungarian Parliament and the St Stephen’s Basilica the Liberty Square can be found. There you will find a big screen, places where you can sit, and also a big grass area where you can enjoy the large screen and also a cold beer if you would like to while watching the matches. One of the best places in Budapest to see the European Championship outdoor.

2) Champs Sports Pub
Next to the Great Synagogue the sports pub Champs can be found. Here you can watch your favorite team on one of the many screen located around in the pub. Probably the best indoor place in Budapest to see the European Championship

3) Akvárium
On the Deák Square, or the Erzsébet Tér, the club Akvárium is located (formerly know as Gödör Klub). Here you can also see matches outdoor at a large area with lots of people, and many staying out partying after the matches are finished

4) Next to Alle Shoppingcenter
If you are on the Buda side of Budapest and would like to see you favorite teams in Budapest, then a quite small area has been set aside next to the Alle Shoppingcenter where you can sit down, buy something to drink and watch the matches on a big screen.

We hope these advices can help you a bit, and we of course hope that you favorite team will win all their matches.

Today at 11:11, November 11 in the 11th district was the official opening of the new shopping center in Budapest, Allee! Many people had met up to join in and rush to Electro World which had many great offer to their visitors today. I arrived to Allee around 16.00, walked around the entire mall, made some pictures and had a good time. There were some techinal problems as many shops were working in the dark (some electrical problem occured probably), but except from that everything seemed in order. The cinema will only open tomorrow!

I liked the look of Allee myself. It reminds me much of Arena Plaza in style, only that Allee feels much smaller.

I made quite some pictures, so enjoy them, and if you have visited Allee, please share your comments as well!

New shopping center opening in Budapest

Today, November 11 at 11.00, a new shopping center will open in Budapest, the Allee Center. The center is located by the end station of tram line 4, Fehérvári Út, a great location on the Budaside and with loads of people who might be possible customers in the new center.

Inside the Allee Center you will not only find shops, but there is also a fitness club there, cinema opportunities, offices and flats for sale (though I guess most of them are sold already)!

We will try to get by tomorrow or sometime soon and later we will post some pictures and information about the place!
