The tiered terrace of this city-center nightlife hub will transform into a stadium every night during the championship. Reasons to watch the matches at Akvárium include refreshing drinks, a UEFA menu, two huge projector screens, and tables that can be reserved in advance. However, it’s important to note that no reservations can be made for the matches starting at 3pm – instead, tables can be occupied depending on how full the terrace is. On the other hand, reservations from 6pm cost 3,000 forints per person, and from 9pm, the price goes up to 5,000 forints per person. Fortunately, this amount redeemable as a voucher for drinks.

Budapest’s best all-weather venue for watching the Euro 2016 matches is indubitably the Royal Tribune, a temporary sports-lover paradise set up within a glass-roofed courtyard of the historic Corinthia Hotel Budapest. Along with multiple big screens and varied levels of viewing spaces covered with artificial turf, this atmosphere is especially welcoming for fans with its foosball table and miniature soccer pitch, while the adjacent Le Bar is now a mini-museum of actual artifacts from Magyar football legend Ferenc Puskás.
