A free Budapest map made by locals to guide young travelers through the locals’ favorite places in the Hungarian capital.
The European network of USE-IT maps dates back to 2005 when the first USE-IT Map for Young Travelers was published in Ghent, Belgium. Since then more than 40 cities have joined the network and designed their own map with the shared aim of providing useful tourist information to young travelers by a group of local volunteers on a non-profit basis. Every map is free, non-commercial and updated every year.
The first USE-IT Budapest map was published in March 2015 with the support of the Antall József Knowledge Center. The map includes not just a list of popular local spots and tips (usually unknown for tourists), but also some information on local customs and the historical background of the city. We believe that this is a map that fills the gap and will efficiently contribute to the creation of an even more positive image of Budapest, a city that is full of stories and is on its way to break out from the touristic clichés and reveal the more authentic ways of enjoying its spirit.
