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.

    Spectacular City

    Budapest is a beautiful city full of history and tradition. It is spectacular after dark! Make sure to take a cruise up and down the Danube even if it's the water taxi. I bought a 7 day metro ticket and found it very easy to get around by underground, bus and tram. I was surprised by the number of people who spoke English (after practicing my Hungarian for 6 months). I had a wonderful time there. The Great Market, Castle hill, Fisherman's Bastian, St. Stephan's, Parliament: take it all in.

    Insider Tip:Make sure to see St. Stephan's and the Holy Right Hand.

    Budapest - August 2015

    I recommend a stay of 3 to 4 days. Nice architecture, a lot of museums and history of an Iron curtain country. Last days were too hot, which provided a good excuse to have more beers. Good nightlife. Good value for your money city. Should definitely come back.

    Insider Tip:Have an afternoon at the baths and relax. Check out the circus.

    Very Beautiful but least welcoming city I have ever visited..

    I really really wanted to love this place.. The city is beautiful and the history is really vibrant.. but anything good is ruined by the locals.. They very clearly HATE tourists. The second you speak in a language other than Hungarian or just appear not to be local they will make it clear that they do not like you at all. You seriously would have to experience the way they treat you to believe it! I am also friends with a local who confirmed that it wasn't just in our heads!

    Insider Tip:If you don't mind everyone hating you and treating you like crap for absolutely no reason then go here but to be honest I will never return. The Ruin Bars are quite cool though.
