It's all about coffee on 17 May!
Municipality of Budapest organized the first Night of Coffee Houses in 2018 with that in mind that many tourists don't even know about the rich coffee tradition of Budapest. The truth is that the cafés of the capital have always played a prominent role in the history of Budapest, in the 19th century they became the main venue of culture, and were important centers of literary life. That's why they want to show the city's most memorable coffee houses this evening and revive their vibrant cultural life with historical, musical, theatrical and literary events. Along with the history of the cafes, we can hear a lot of interesting things about coffee itself this evening.
This year thirty venues and nearly one hundred cultural programs await the lovers of coffee on 17 May. Besides getting to know the coffee culture, literary programs and jazz concerts will make the night special. Organizers offer unique programs for coffee lovers: barista instructors and coffee experts will introduce us to the mystery of coffee culture and we can even participate in cupping coffee tasting programs. There will be several coffee house and city history tours that show these wonderful places and their surroundings on different routes and themes.
