Óbuda Island

The Danube's Largest Island, a Double Treat

In the Danube River, north of somewhat better known Margaret Island, Óbuda (old Buda) Island -also known as Hajógyári Island- is a bit larger, at 108 hectares (267 acres). It is home to a pretty wooded park which makes a tranquil getaway by day. After dark, the action heats up, as it's a destination for several clubs and pubs such as Mokka Cuka. This indie outdoor club is also the venue of one of Europe's best annual music/theatre/film fests, August's Sziget Festival, founded the year after the fall of Communism.
