Our Health and Lifestyle Editor Ewelina was fortunate enough to take a trip to Budapest over the Christmas break and after arriving in this beautiful place, she was kind enough to blog her journey. For the next two issues, she will be giving us a flavour of life in Budapest.
I am going to take you on a truly magical journey through the Museum of Sweets & Selfies in the heart of Budapest. There are two locations one can visit with the purchase of a single ticket. It is a 10-minute walk between buildings. If you’re looking to take aesthetic photos, you’ve hit the jackpot.
There is a time limit for both buildings, however you don’t need to watch the clock! You will have plenty of time to have your photoshoots. If I was to make any recommendation, I would highly suggest bringing a selfie stick or a small tripod with a Bluetooth remote.
With each new turn you make, you discover something exciting and unexpected. Personally, I didn’t expect to swing on a strawberry. (See photo) I almost felt like Miley Cyrus on her wrecking ball. Anyway, it was an experience I didn’t think I needed.
Have you ever seen those YouTube videos where creators swim in things you would usually not swim in? For example, orbeez? Dive into a pool of sprinkles! I can confidently say that my friend group spent the most time here. The sprinkles are everywhere. We found them in our clothes later back in the hotel. Having completely forgotten about them, we got quite the laugh when the floor got covered in colourful pieces of plastic.
I am going to leave a few things out. The element of surprise must remain! You will walk through dreamy corridors, where cherries hang from ceilings and glowing lollipops grow from the ground in dark spaces. Walls are covered in flamingos and bananas, while the Lego room reminds you of every time you’ve hurt your foot.
I am now taking you to the second location. It is another playground for all ages. The bubblegum coloured walls welcome you as you get ready to slide your way down into a pool of balls. Prepare yourself for an attack coming from your companions.
Once you’re ready to leave the bubble pool, take a bath in money and visit the hairdresser’s lounge! There are quite a few statutes and unique items you can sit in or sit on. I can assure you that no one will leave that place without a laugh.
Europe’s first Sweets and Selfies museum in Budapest is a place not to be missed!
In the next issue, I will explore the taste of Budapest! Get ready for insights into different bars and restaurants around the beautiful capital city of Hungary.
