Sports & Recreation

Sporty types don't have to leave their competitive sides at home – Budapest offers a wide range of opportunities to stay in shape through independent or team sporting activities. Start out your morning with a game of tennis, squash, bowling or golf, and cool down afterward with a dip in one of the city's many swimming pools. For those who prefer a solo work-out, Budapest also has a number of gyms where you can exercise at your own pace.
