Cheap flights to Budapest
Boasting the romance of Paris and the beauty of Prague, but beating them both on price, Budapest should be your next weekend break destination.
When it comes to beauty, there really is nowhere quite like Budapest – the ‘Queen of the Danube’ is right up there with tourist heavyweights Paris, Vienna and Prague. The difference? Well, Budapest has that distinct eastern flavour to it that sets it apart from the competition – the Ottoman baths here are the real thing, don’t you know.
And so is the architecture, which ranges from Baroque and Neoclassical to Art Nouveau and neo-Gothic. Wander the city’s elegant tree-lined boulevards, pop into its many leafy parks or sail down the Danube for mind-blowing photo opportunities few other cities can offer.
