Budapest Travel Guides

Spas and shots are two things that spring to mind when I think about Hungary’s capital, Budapest.

Budapest is a city split in two by the Danube River. Buda is the more residential area for Hungarian families, whereas Pest is where young Hungarians, tourists, backpackers, and stag (bachelor) parties invade, especially when night falls and Hungary’s famous ruin bars awake.

Fear not; Hungarians know how to soothe a hangover by soaking in many of the city’s traditional spas.

Day Trips From Budapest

Budapest is not the only place worth visiting in Hungary.

There are many stops close to Budapest accessible by train, such as Eger (Bull’s Blood wine region), Hévíz (one of the world’s largest thermal lakes), and Miskolctapolca (the spa in a cave).

There are also lots of towns to visit which are less than two hours by car, such as Esztergom, Siófok, Lake Balaton, Tapolca, Badacsony, and don’t forget to see the Danube Bend!
