Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and is split into two main parts: the historical Buda district, most famous for its palace complex, and the Pest District. Budapest is full of leafy parks complete with their own attractions, inspirational monuments and museums, and has a nightlife to rival any city in Europe. Architecturally, the city is no less impressive, with a stunning mixture of baroque, neoclassical and art nouveau buildings to see on your Budapest city break.

When on your Budapest city break see top sights such as the iconic Szechenyi Chain Bridge, the most beautiful bridge crossing the Danube, The Castle District including the Royal Palace, the National Gallery and the Matyas Church, the Parliament, the extraordinarily opulent State Opera House, and St Stephen’s Basilica. There are also a number of museums on the Castle Hill and in the city centre for you to explore.
Budapest city breaks aren't complete without a boat trip on the Danube. Also, make the most of the chance to unwind in a hot sulphur bath or get a massage in one of the city’s many grand hotels.
Budapest is famous for its café culture, as well as its unique Hungarian cuisine and excellent local wines. For the most part, the food and drink aren’t expensive, and the choice is huge. Visit a ‘borozó’ (wine pub) where the wine is served on tap at outrageously low prices.
