With picture perfect architecture, a river lined with famous bridges, world-class cuisine, and pulsating nightlife, Budapest is not just the capital of Hungary, but arguably Eastern Europe as well. Considered by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Budapest is actually two separate cities: Buda along the west bank of the Danube river and Pest along the east bank. It’s old-world Austral-Hungarian elegance meets new-world culture and nightlife with nearly everything in between. Attracting more than 20 million visitors per year, the city is no stranger to foreign visitors. Still, with all the glitz and glamour there remains a grit and realness to the city that is not as apparent in western Europe. Budapest is city to contemplate, to consider, and to reconsider. It’s a world city and no matter where else you may trek, Budapest is a must-see, must-do, must-experience!
