Szimpla Kert ‘aka’ Simple Garden is not so simple

Number three on the list of great bars in the world by Lonely Planet, Budapest’s first and most popular ruin bar right in the middle of Budapest downtown.

A ruin bar is an old building turned into a bar/pub/restaurant without much renovation. You can enjoy an authentic Hungarian building not touched since the communist era, with cool and stylish interior decoration.


Farmers market on Sundays

The iconic ruin bar in the city center of Budapest, Szimpla Kert, opens its gates on Sunday mornings to offer a wide range of fresh products right from the Hungarian countryside.

If you want to try quality, authentic Hungarian products at a reasonable price, the Sunday ruin bar market is the place to go.

Every stand at the market is a family business, the people are extremely nice and helpful, and the place has a big variety of organic products.
