Pearl of the Danube

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site. Many travelers flock to this city for the popular geothermal springs, but this capital has a lot more to offer than that. The amount of historical sites here is seemingly endless, with some of the most popular being the Buda Castle Quarter, the Millenium Undergound Railway, and Heroes' Square. Artists have long been drawn to the youthful atmosphere of this city, thus the population in Budapest is quite relaxed and creative. Packed with theatres, operas, museums, and a vibrant nightlife, Budapest has energy in abundance. Put Budapest at the heart of your travel plans by using our Hungary vacation generator.
