From Ruin to Cultural Riches – Exploring Budapest’s Ruin Pubs

Ankert Entrance

For years, these “ruin bars” or “ruin pubs”, a literal translation from the Hungarian word romkocsma, were considered temporary, since one might pop up for a single summer, only to disappear by the winter or re-open at another address.

The East Side Gallery is the longest section of the Berlin Wall that remains standing – at 1.3kms. It’s covered in graffiti-like art, but it’s not for just anybody to come along and make their mark; artists are invited.
