About Budapest

Including tips for the best time to visit Budapest

It’s easy to see why people fall in love with Budapest. From the eclectic architecture and revitalizing thermal baths to the endless bowls of goulash and all-night “ruin bar” parties, this city always has something to do.

The 1640-foot wide Danube River splits the city into two parts – Buda and Pest. Take a boat tour to get an up-close view of all the landmarks lining the riverbanks, or just cross one of the 8 bridges for a more panoramic view. The Chain Bridge will take you to the grounds of Buda Castle, a huge baroque-style complex dating back to the 13th century. Walk or take the short funicular ride to the top of Castle Hill and check out historic monuments like the Hungarian Parliament Building and St. Stephen’s Basilica, a huge domed church that shimmers when lit up at night.

After all that walking, taking a dip in one of Budapest’s thermal baths is the perfect way to relax and recharge. Choose between Széchenyi Baths and Géllert Spa – both feature indoor and outdoor temperature-controlled pools and massage services.

No trip to the capital of Hungary would be complete without experiencing its exciting nightlife and amazing food. You can find all the best bars and restaurants in District VII— the city’s old Jewish Quarter—where the nightlife fun doesn't stop till dawn.

Amazingly beautiful city where you can breath and feel history and a rich culture. The few days we stayed there were not enough to see everything this city has to offer... one needs at least one month to take all that beauty in... to visit the museums and cutural sites and monuments... and go to the thermal baths... and have conversations with the locals...

An awesome city to tour both during the day and at night! Castles and Basillicas to ruin bars and cheap wine. Get yourself to Budapest or BUDAPESHT as the locals call it to have an experience of a lifetime.

Budapea is a great romantic city that specially sparkled at night. Most people spoke English. Shopping in Peat was excellent. The sights in Buda were stunning. The Danube is a great backdrop for all the beautiful buildings.
