Budapest is famous for the doubling of its name and is undoubtedly the most important, impressive and elegant capital of Eastern Europe. It’s one of those cities where it is worth losing time, discovering every corner in order to be able to say that you had visited a real capital. It is a city rich in history, curiosity and fun where a weekend would be very simplistic and incomplete.

At first glance it turns out to be very distracting as it is very long and wide from a geographical point of view but with the use of the meter distances the times are felled. For this reason it is good to find accommodation near the center. From the city center the perspective becomes frenetic with a host of monuments and works of art to see.

Whatever time of year you decide to go, do not forget a swimsuit and a pair of slippers. Why? The city is absolutely full of thermal baths open all year round but especially in winter with the peak of tourists. Soak in hot water with the presence of an outside temperature of -10 degrees worth the cost of the ticket. Same goes for food: for lovers of local traditions, the Hungarian Goulash is the dish, perhaps with a good red wine.

Strolling along the Danube the view is breathtaking. At times when the cold is not very pungent a ride on the boat is undoubtedly yet another attraction of Budapest. Even the Hungarian nightlife is very active in all sectors. Numerous pubs, especially the “ruin pubs”, made in abandoned structures but decorated and arranged with care, provide absolute fun.
