Discover Budapest’s alternative face and cultural life with this new interactive map!

The capital is celebrating its upcoming 150th birthday with a plethora of cultural projects. One of these is the ALT.BP digital network map, which uses data visualization to show the hubs of the capital’s lively alternative life. Budapest Brand created the niche map with the help of three cultural experts and the visual journalism team of ATLO.


“The city’s buildings, squares, corners, abandoned warehouses, and redeveloped industrial complexes hide cells, spots, and clusters pulsating with art and creative energies: they form the dense, vibrating web of Budapest’s culture,” says the website of the ALT.BP project.

Budapest’s diverse cultural scene is expanding, but it has also undergone many changes in recent years. Iconic places had to be closed or altered due to the pandemic, government regulations, or the economic crisis. But fortunately, some exciting and innovative places have also emerged in the meantime.

Budapest’s current digital web was created with the most prominent network centers of ten different cultural and community segments as starting points. We can choose from 138 places across literary, musical, artistic, urban, civic, and other overarching themes.

If the Nyitott Műhely, Auróra, Valyo, Gólya, ISBN Gallery, Jurányi, and the many more hubs of the city mean something to you, it is time to get to know their background story better! And if you do not know them yet, what are you waiting for?

Almost everyone is familiar with the figure of the Krampus, but perhaps less so with who he was in the original folktales. Many people refer to him as the anti-Santa, or the demon opposing Father Christmas, the arch-enemy of the red-clad, big-bearded, potbellied gentleman. But in fact, Krampus in the
