Budapest Travel Guide

The Hungarian capital, Budapest, is situated on the banks of the Danube in Central Europe. Budapest is one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe.  It’s the political, economic and cultural heart of the nation, and one of the most beautiful and livable cities on the continen. Budapest is the capital and most populous city of Hungary, one of the largest cities in the European Union.  Budapest is the most visited tourist destination in Hungary giving home to more than two million people. It’s also a well-known cultural, artistic and sports centre.
Budapest is paradise for explorers and travelers. Keep your senses primed and you’ll discover something wonderful at every turn.

 

Budapest has a lot to offer. Museums and galleries, churches and synagogues, palaces and historic buildings, baths and pools are presented together with the influence of Secession in the city.

There is an unmistakable feeling that something out of the ordinary is just around the corner, but what it will be is up to you to find out…

Good to know:

  • The official currency is the Hungarian Forint (HUF) in Hungary. However you can pay with Euros at several places.
  • The city of spas.  Budapest is a capital, which is rich in thermal waters. More than hundred thermal springs provide millions of litres of hot thermal water day by day.
  • Budapest has quite a few interesting places, which are not frequented by tourists, because organised sightseeing tours don’t take them there. Get off the beaten path!
  • The local food is delicious & definitely worth trying.
  • Buda and Pest were once separate cities. Back in the day, Buda and Pest were two distinct cities sliced down the middle by the river Danube. Buda, traditional home of royalty, castles and Elven-style fortresses, sits on the hilly west; while Pest, a commercial hub now bustling with city slickers, hotels and hip ruin bars (more on these later), is on the east.
  • Keep an eye on the taxi fare! Same situation for every backpacker, some taxi drivers will try to rip you off. Always take a note of the fare per kilometer.
  • The view from Gellert is way better than from Buda Castle.
  • Drinking on the streets is technically illegal. But the police don’t particularly enforce this law either.
