Budapest Pocket Guide

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.

    Amazing City, Amazing Culture

    Budapest is an incredible city with an incredibly rich culture. There's a lot to do and a lot to see. It's incredibly affordable, although I spent a lot more than I thought I would because I wanted to do a lot more once I got there.

    Insider Tip:Make sure you always buy a metro or tram ticket because they do check, unlike Prague and Vienna. It's a large fine if you don't have one and they make you pay on the spot.
