The American actor and comedian, famous for his iconic role in Ghostbusters, spent a night at a friend's house on the outskirts of Budapest. Before that, he enjoyed dinner and shared a few thoughts about the Hungarian capital.

Hungarian news portal Blikk reported that Bill Murray, the American actor, comedian, and writer, travelled briefly to Budapest, after filming in Germany. He made the trip to pay a surprise visit to an old Hungarian friend, Michael Stenger, who lives in Tököl, a smaller town on the outskirts of Budapest.

Stenger and Murray have known each other for 35 years, dating back to when Stenger worked as a limousine driver in New York after migrating from Hungary to the US in 1956. Their friendship began when Stenger gave Murray a lift, and now, for the first time, Murray has visited Hungary, keeping his promise to reunite with his friend.

'This city is undeniably beautiful. Finding gypsy music was bit of a challenge, but we will try again tonight. Or we'll host them' 

– he told Blikk. He picked cherries and tasted the famous Hungarian herbal liquor, Unicum, for the first time, which, according to him, had a calming effect.

On Monday, he stopped by Éjjeli Bagoly Restaurant near Puskás Stadium, where he also posed for a photo:
