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.

Spring has sprung and it's festival time in the city. The Budapest Spring Festival this year includes the Budapest Opera's premiere of Tchaikovsky's The Queen of Spades, while the Budapest Jazz Club will celebrate a "feast of Hungarian Jazz". For film buffs, there's the Titanic International Film Festival and flower fanciers will want to sniff out the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Good old fashioned trainspotting fun is to be had at Miniversum, a new attraction on Andrássy avenue, the Champs-Élysées of Budapest. Interactive light, sound and motion controls liven up incredible scale models of Budapest, Vienna and also smaller Hungarian towns such as Tata and Gyor. The details are quite impressive, with 1000s of miniature figures, 100s of buildings and dozens of replica towns. Miniversum, Andrássy út 12.

The Budapest Jazz Club has had various incarnations and locations, but this finally does it justice. With elegant supper room, auditorium for serious jazz buffs, a charming café open during the day (and good for escaping the summer heat): This place has "it". High rotate of local and touring musicians too of course. Hollán Ern

Not so much escape - as run for your life! Nightmare in Budapest is part interactive theatre/part Ghost train, and all good, clean, scary fun. Players navigate a series of chambers, inhabited by ghouls and monsters, played with a aplomb by local actors. Not for the feint of heart perhaps - although they do give players a "safe word" if it all gets too much. Nightmare in Budapest ? Rákóczi út 30, 1072
