It is it the new Prague or the Paris of Central Europe – a place of romantic architecture and authentic old European traditions? Budapest is older than that, its Turkish thermal baths are testament to a long history on this picturesque bend of the Danube.
About more than appreciating the buildings and the art and culture that’s going on inside then, Budapest is the kinda town which evolves with change, so expect familiar foods and internet access as well as romance.
