Going for a Jog in Budapest

Things to Do, What's New — By Gyongi Asztalos on February 26, 2012 at 10:51 pm

Locals love to unwind after, or pep up before work with a good hour’s jog. For those wanting to keep fit on a visit to Budapest, these three popular jogging routes may come in handy. With air pollution being quite high in the city centre, running along the Great Ring Road for example is not advisable. Budapest is however blessed with lots of green, such as inner city parks and the Buda hills, providing perfect spots for recreation.

The most popular jogging destination is Margaret Island with its 5.3km synthetic jogging rout along the island’s outer rim. The Danube and wooded park provide picturesque surroundings and fresh air in the inner city making for a pleasurable run.

Gellért Hill on the Buda side also has lots of green, but traffic as well. Even so, there are a few not-so-frequented routs up to the top, partially along some stairs if preferred. It will definitely work up a sweat and get those legs aching, but the view from the top will be worth the struggle!

Another favoured destination on the Pest side is the City Park behind Hero’s Square. Its 1.2 sq. km area of green is perfect for those inner city dwellers that don’t have the time to cross over to the Buda side.

    I would like to show thanks to you for rescuing me from this type of incident. Because of surfing through the online world and obtaining recommendations that were not helpful, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive devoid of the answers to the issues you have resolved by means of your entire guideline is a serious case, as well as the ones which may have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t discovered your blog. That expertise and kindness in controlling everything was excellent. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for your high quality and sensible help. I won’t be reluctant to refer your blog to any individual who desires counselling on this subject.
