A getaway in Budapest will guarantee a feast for the senses. It is a city brimming with stunning architecture, a variety of unique cuisine, and a sense of romance in the air. Located on the Danube River, there are views in all directions, whether you take a hike up to the Buda Hills, or simply stroll along the riverbank. Make sure to visit one of the city s numerous bath houses which source water from Budapest s natural hot springs, or to take in the sights of the Royal Palace.
Spend some time at the Hungarian National Museum finding out more about this city s remarkable history of destruction through World War II and the Communist period. Memento Park is a must see tourist attraction for those keen to find out how Communism so deeply affected this city s past.
Guests who fly in to Budapest Airport (BUD) will find the public transport system is excellent, but can be difficult to circumnavigate at first, so it is recommended to catch a taxi or airport minibus from the airport to your accommodation.
Hints and tips
The city is divided into two main sections, Buda and Pest, and the majority of visitors choose to stay in the more touristy Pest side of the river. April through October brings the best weather, mild, with around 10 hours of sunshine per day.
