A flagship of Hungarian patisserie, this famous cake was created by József Dobos in 1884. At the end of the 19th century, it was considered special because it used buttercream, rather than the cooked creams prevalent in those days. The invention – admired by many, including Empress Elisabeth (Sisi) – was named Dobos after its creator. Since then, the dessert has had quite a long journey; yet, it is still on the menu in most Budapest patisseries. Let’s see where it’s the best to taste this cake, made with six layers of sponge, a cocoa and vanilla butter cream, and the irresistible, crunchy, caramelised top.
Budapest provides an excellent backdrop for a romantic vacation. It’s obvious, given all of its elegant restaurants, cozy little cafés, unique thermal baths and cultural events. But still... can you think of anything more intimate than a walk for two, far from the noise of the city?

All festive events in Budapest for 20th August have been called off as part of the protective regulations against the epidemic - nor the famous fireworks, or the air race will be organised this year. According to this official announcement the primary motive for this drastic decision is the high risk of contagion during such events.
State of emergency has been lifted in Hungary from 18th June, starting a new period in the defence against coronavirus, bringing in a couple of new regulations. The government terminated the shopping time slot reserved for the elderly, although wearing a mask is continuously compulsory while travelling by public transport or entering shops. Restrictions for organising events have also lessened.
