Images Of Budapest

Budapest is a city that still bears the scars of communism but one that is constantly developing into one of the world's greatest capitals. Split in two by the grand River Danube, on one side you have the Buda, the hilly side dominated by the castle and Royal Palace. On the other you have the Pest, a flat side where you will find the city's financial district, high street shops and its most popular bars. But something you can find anywhere in the city are its public baths...don't leave without treating yourself to a dip in one.

    Budapest

    I absolutely loved this city. Architecture, food, atmosphere... There is SO much to see in this city, and it is now definitely my number one city destination in Europe.

    Insider Tip:If you want some nice photos of the city, go up the castle hill + Fisherman's Bastion during the evening... It's really beautiful up there. Also, I really don't think that the funicular is worth the money, you're up the hill in like 2 minutes and the view is not even spectacular or anything.. :D

    Budapest is an amazing city, during the day there is lots to go and see and explore including the castillion, the baths and the market. There are plenty of good restaurants too although some of them can be pricey in the central tourist area. Night time the ruin bars come alive and are lots of fun to visit and explore although it can get quite warm inside. Heroes square and one of the baths is quite a walk away but definitely worth a visit. In general a very cheap area to buy food and drink.

    Insider Tip:Try to book a "spa party" at one of the baths they're a lot of fun.

    I adore this city, I did my semester abroad here and have travelled in many other countries and this is easily the best place in Europe. There is so much to see and do here and the atmosphere is unlike anywhere else.

    allow 5 nights

    Spectacular city well worth the visit. Pretty magic by night. We only had two nights here and would recommend 4 - 5 as a minimum to fit everything in. Hop on/off bus tour a great way to see things if pushed for time.

    Insider Tip:Allow time, be patient at train stations as public service not the fastest or most helpful.
