Your guide to Budapest

All About Budapest

Hungary’s capital, Budapest, is a bustling metropolis in central Europe. The Danube River splits the city in two, and Budapest’s many bridges help reconnect it. Each bridge has a story behind its name and serves as a historical symbol of this cosmopolitan capital. Budapest’s cityscape is a mix of architecture, from classic Baroque and Gothic styles to sleek, modern buildings.

The best way to experience Budapest is to take part in local life. Explore public spaces, such as the lush City Park, and wander through the alleyways full of street art and make a detour to a pop-up flea market for a unique souvenir. Throughout your city journey, find one of the many thermal, outdoor baths scattered throughout the downtown area. Budapest also hosts several festivals throughout the year. For more insight into Hungary’s compelling history, you can visit one of Budapest’s national museums.

Budapest has four distinct seasons. During the hot summertime, you can lounge by one of the city’s swim-friendly outdoor baths. Winter can be cold and rainy and you might see snow if you visit Budapest from December to March.
