The Hungarian capital offers countless things for its visitors, from the thermal baths to the monuments, providing you all you need.
Budapest, the Union of three towns, Buda, Pest and Obuda, is a wonderful city which is located in the heart of Europe, right there, where East and West meet.
The capital of Hungary is crossed by the Danube, which divides the lowland areas from the Hills, taking almost the appearance of a long street that runs through the city. This might be a good way to start your holiday in Budapest: begin to discover the Danube by boat.
Divided into 23 districts, two in particular are the ones that attract most tourists:
- The I District
In the ancient and picturesque Buda, which houses the Royal Palace and mount Gerardo.
- The V District
In the more active and young Pest, which houses the town Center, the pedestrian zone and Vorosmarty square, major shopping site where you can devote yourselves to shopping.
Conquered and contaminated by different populations, such as Romans, Turks, Austrians, the city of Budapest has a strong historical and artistic value. One of the major museums is the Museum of fine arts, which houses works by artists such as Giotto, Raffaello, Goya, Monet, Manet and Picasso. Without a doubt a must for art lovers!
Of course the reasons for deciding to spend your holidays in Budapest are many, besides those already mentioned: you might mention the fantastic Spa town par excellence, with thermal baths of various sizes, for every need, but also the food that is surely worth a try, with paprika in many dishes like Goulash and Porkolt.
In short, Budapest is a well-rounded European capital, able to offer great vacation days, welcoming visitors of all levels, thanks to its variety and its beauty.
Absolutely worth visiting in Budapest are the Hero square and St. Stephen’s Church attractions, and for those who love to walk, reaching the Gellert hill is a must, here you’ll be able to feat your eyes on the beautiful views of the entire city.
Also, if you’re into excursions, we highly suggest you visit the Margarita island, a very characteristic location where you’ll even be able to enjoy a candle lit dinner with your loved one, while overlooking the gorgeous Danube river.Categories: Guides
