Why you should go to Budapest
Budapest, Hungary’s capital is fast becoming one of the most visited cities in Europe, with travellers from all over choosing this as their destination of choice. The beauty of Budapest means there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a lover of magnificent architecture or just have tickling taste buds for authentic craft beer.
With streets riddled in history and a vibrancy amongst its community, Budapest has a number of popular tourist destinations from the impressive Parliament building to St. Stephens Basilica. You should also take some time out to visit the Chain Bridge on the Danube River – joining Buda with Pest, the best time to witness all its glory is when it’s lit up of a night.
No trip to Hungary is complete without a visit to an outdoor thermal pool, so we’d recommend you try Széchenyi Baths towards the north of the city for some authentic relaxation. Why not join the locals with a game of chess in water temperatures of 38°C? The streets of Budapest are not only littered with jaw-dropping street art but also old ruin pubs – immerse yourself in these quirky hideaways and brush up on your knowledge of local ales.
When you should go to Budapest
Budapest is a stunning city all year round, but if you’re thinking of getting in the Christmas spirit, visit during December and enjoy the world-famous markets. July and August are popular amongst tourists but try and visit during October when the temperature is just right for exploring.
