Things To Do Near Keleti Train Station in Budapest

The Keleti Railway Station and its surrounding are not considered the safest part of town after sunset, but there's nothing to worry about during the day-time. It's one of the districts with a brighter past than present and is not cram-packed with attractions, but there are several easily reachable sights in its circumference.

Our first pick is the Arena Plaza; a new addition to the line of shopping malls in Budapest located a few steps from the railway station.

The Kerepesi Cemetery; the burial ground of many Hungarian heroes and one of the largest memorial parks of Europe is located a couple miles from the Keleti.

East of the railway station is the Sports District of Budapest, with the famous Puskás Stadium and Budapest Arena, both sports and entertainment venues hosting concerts of international calibre. The Steffania Road also runs nearby, along which the beautiful Secessions gem, the Geological Institute is located.

The Rákóczi Road - named after Ferenc Rákóczi prince of Transylvania whose funeral procession walked along this road after dying in exile - runs all the way to the Keleti from the inner city, and along it are our next three picks: The Uránia and Puskin Cinema, Inner City Parish Church and Franciscan Church and the Váci Street.
