Why should I visit Budapest?
From bars in empty buildings to the world famous Sziget festival, alongside a treasure trove of architectural delights, Budapest is full of cultural gems. There really is something for everyone in Hungary’s capital, whether it’s the Opera, the National Gallery, historical museums or the ruin pubs.
Buda Castle is one of the most striking sights of the city. Located on a fortified hill, this unique historical monument was built in the 15th century. Other buildings worth visiting nearby are Fishermen's Bastion and Royal Palace.
You can’t visit Budapest without bathing in one of the thermal springs. Whether you want to heal pains, chill out or party hard, ‘taking the waters’ has been an experience in Budapest since the Roman times.
Eat like a local whilst you’re in Budapest by ordering some classic Hungarian dishes, like these popular snacks. For classic comfort food on the go, pick up a Lángos, a deep-fried doughy flatbread that's eaten warm and slathered with sour cream and grated cheese or with garlicky butter (or all of the above). For a sweet treat, try Kürtőskalács (Chimney Cake), long strips of sugary dough wrapped around cone-shaped spits that are brushed with butter and roasted over charcoal.
