The Hungarian capital is a treasure trove of baroque, eclectic and neoclassical architecture, a veritable gold mine for the intrepid explorer with wonderful discoveries waiting to be made at every turn.
Hungarian food is one of the most sophisticated styles of cooking in Europe, and Budapest is home to a vast array of culinary delights. It’s reputation as a food capital may have dwindles in recent years, but it's once again drawing the attention of many a critic.
Temperatures range from just below freezing in winter to the mid-twenties at the height of summer. There's minimal rainfall but snow is fairly common in the winter months.
The city is serviced by Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD), about 10 miles east of the city. Local transport includes metro, tram and bus routes as well as a smart bicycle sharing network thats great for getting around and seeing all its wonderful sights.
There's so much to do and see in Budapest, from the museums, galleries, libraries and opera houses to the architecture, restaurants, road side cafes, bars and clubs. There's really no excuse not to book your next trip now.
