If you’ve been following the travel trends lately, then you know that Budapest is rising in popularity among travelers.

While many credit Grammy-winning rapper and actor Will Smith’s epic video of him taking part in the “Shiggy Challenge” up the city’s Chain Bridge, truth is, interest in this European city among tourists has been on the rise for a few years now.

And it’s not just tourists who are exploring Hungary’s capital, but entrepreneurs as well.

A recent article in Forbes lists Budapest as the top city to launch a business post-Brexit citing “the city is already home to a growing number of business accelerators and a wealth of funding sources.”

With Budapest emerging as both a tourist and business hotspot, here’s how to make sure that black-owned businesses are getting the piece of that tourism boom.

Here’s How To Support In Black-Owned Budapest:

Lagos Africa Restaurant

Lagos Africa Restaurant opens up at 10 a.m. and is where you will find some of the best homemade dishes in Eastern Europe.

In need of some me-time? Then book a manicure with Totally Smitten.

Shop for souvenirs at Mama Africa

Mama Africa is an Exotic African Food and Cosmetic Store markets itself as a one-stop that offers original food, spices, cosmetics, and more. Think of it as a Bodega in New York City.

Unique Salon & Barbershop Budapest

As one of the few black-owned barber and beauty salons in Budapest, Unique Salon & Barbershop is a favorite among tourists and locals alike. Even if you’re not in the need for a haircut, stop in and ask about the best things to do in Budapest.
