Girls, don't be offended if on the Easter day men sprinkle water or perfume on you – it's a local tradition: water is to wash away the winter and perfume to make you bloom. Your reaction should be giving men a treat and they will leave. And if you are in a countryside you risk to get a bucketfull not just several drops.
On April 5,6 the square by the Buda Royal Palace will be taken by local craftsmen in traditional costumes – they will teach how to play Hungarian games, paint eggs and treat everyone with pastry. Easter fairs can be found all across Budapest during the season.
