Budapest city is a top pick for more reasons than one.

It’s one of the most historic cities on the planet.

Budapest is right on the Danube, which has been home to humans since the Stone Age. The river and its Buda Castle are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Book a night time cruise to see them in top form.

It’s a food capital, and for good reason.

Budapest’s food history spans literal centuries. Check out some tours with food options.  

Hot springs make the city into a spa playground.

Hungary is said to have more than 1,000 hot springs thanks to super-thin earth crust. Take a break at one of Budapest’s hot-spring spas like Széchenyi thermal baths, where outdoor pool temps reach about 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Great Synagogue is mind-blowingly beautiful.

The largest synagogue in Europe  includes the Hungarian Jewish Museum and a Holocaust memorial. The arches are breathtaking.

A magical island oasis.

Margaret or Margit Island floats in the Danube, just a bridge walk away from city streets. Take a bus tour or bike, visit a petting zoo, or see a concert in the outdoor theater.

party in “ruins.”

Ruin pubs are doomed buildings — old cinemas, car parks and apartment buildings — that have been turned into the cheap bars of your dreams. The average bar isn’t too shabby here, either.
