Budapest has been known to lightly sweep people off their feet with its lavish architectural and historical vibe. The city has an unmatched mishmash of cultural and heritage sites, a vibrant foodie scene and thermal waters to wind down in after a day of exploration. Separated in two by the Danube, the city is made up of Buda on one side and Pest on the other. Buda is where travellers can find the popular thermal baths at the foot of Gellért Hill, the royal palace and Matthias Church. In Pest, where most of the action happens, you will find a lively scene of museums, Art Nouveau architecture, the iconic Parliament building, Saint Stephen’s Basilica, the Jewish Quarter and Palace District. Budapest has a highly developed cultural scene. You can find immense murals, quirky bars and world-class festivals. Margaret Island is the city’s green heart and considered by many to be one of Europe’s best city parks. It is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing wander.
