Budapest is the capital of Hungary and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Located on both banks of the Danube River, Budapest is a charming blend of modern city life and old-world architecture. The city's breathtaking historic districts, public parks, thermal baths, museums and vibrant nightlife offer something for everyone.

The iconic Chain Bridge connects Buda Castle Hill with the bustling Pest side. From up here you can enjoy sweeping views over both sides of the river and marvel at some of its stunning 19th century architecture. Make sure to also visit The Fisherman's Bastion on Castle Hill where you can admire its ornate terraces with their turrets and spires as well as get great views over Budapest.

One unmissable highlight when visiting Budapest are its many thermal baths which are said to have healing properties due to their high content in minerals such as sulphur or calcium carbonate. Other must sees include Heroes Square, City Park (Varosliget), Vajdahunyad Castle and St Stephen Basilica for a superior view from its dome shaped cupola - all fantastic examples of Hungary's rich history!
