Find an incomparable swirl of culture, history, and hipness in Budapest. Often cited as one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Budapest has an abundance of museums, performing arts venues, parks, and noteworthy architecture spanning millenia. You can visit Budapest’s many remembrances of the past, including Buda Castle, “Shoes on the Danube”, a memorial to the city’s Jewish community, and the 1956 Hungarian Revolution Memorial. Foodies can head to the Great Markey Hall or dive into the Jewish Quarter’s Street food scenen and “ruin bars”. Explore the shifting landscape of contemporary murals and street art. Share Hungarian desserts with a friend and of course linger a little with a good book in one of the city’s legendary cafes.
