Beautiful Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

I’ve only been to Central Europe once before and had been itching to go back and visit the city of Budapest. Although it may not be as popular as London or Paris, Budapest is just as lovely. The grand architecture of century-old buildings, the lovely bridges connecting Buda and Pest sides, and the world-famous thermal baths are just some of the reasons why this city is worth visiting.












We arrived in Budapest after a short 2.5-hour train ride from Vienna. It was much larger, busier, and reminded me of Paris with the sight of Danube river dividing the city into two sides. The architecture was grand as seen from the Hungarian Parliament, the lovely bridges, our hotel, and at the famous New York cafe. My favorite? The gorgeous Halászbástya aka Fisherman’s Bastion situated on Castle Hill, which looks like the Disney logo. Not only does it transport you to a place and time in the past, this spot is also a great lookout point to view how pretty Budapest is.

We only had a few days exploring Budapest but we made sure to experience what this city is known for – thermal baths. There are several baths around the city but we decided to visit the most popular one among the locals – Szechenyi Bath.  With the fall season just started as we were in Budapest, it was a perfect experience to end our stay. That and some delicious goulash soup.

Special thanks to Budapest Tourism Board and Budapest TukTuk for showing us around their beautiful city. As always, all photographs and opinions are my own.
