Grand Old Budapest
Those who visit will happily tell you that Budapest must be one of Europe’s grandest cities. And when you’re standing up by Fisherman’s Bastion looking out across the Danube River to the rest of the city, you’re sure to agree.
Besides beautiful, Budapest is also the capital city of Hungary, making it the ideal place to start exploring the country. While the city is full of cultural landmarks, its ruin bars and thermal baths make it quite a fun destination as well.
