Budapest Travel Guide

General Information Top Attractions Getting to Budapest Public Transport Where to Eat 2-Day Itinerary Where to Stay Shopping Map Activities

The Danube River, a source of inspiration for many artists, divided Buda and Pest, two large towns that became a single city in 1873. It is currently one of Europe's most important capital cities. Enormous iron bridges join both banks, Buda, the formal Royal district and most elegant residential area with Pest, the commercial and financial heart of the city.

Explore the city’s historical streets and you will discover why Budapest is called the Pearl of the Danube and why over 7 million tourists visit it every year. The Hungarian capital will fascinate you.

Budapest, the most stunning city on the Danube

The Polish writer and winner of the Prince of Asturias Award, Claudio Magris describes Budapest as the Pearl of the Danube after travelling through Europe. 

In our opinion, Budapest is extremely surprising. We read a lot about the city, about the supposed rudeness of its citizens, how many of its buildings need restoration and many other interesting facts about Hungary’s capital city.

It is true that it isn’t as “fairy-tale” as Prague, but travellers, unlike tourists, have the capacity to find the beauty of a city behind its façades. What’s more, we have been treated very kindly in Budapest, except by the metro inspectors!

Where to begin?

To make the most of your visit, we recommend you read about Budapest’s general information and the city’s top attractions. Once you have decided what you want to visit, you can plan your itinerary with our interactive map.

Generally, you'll need three days to get a feel for the city.
