Hungary – Budapest, including the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue

European getaways are often associated with high costs, and when you’re talking about cities like London, Madrid, or Paris, that is often true. However, if you stay away from the traditional European hot spots, you can find destinations that are much friendlier on your wallet while still providing that old world European charm. Many of these places give even the best budget destinations in the world a run for their money.

Though you can find bargains all over the continent, Eastern and Central Europe, in particular, provide a lot of bang for your buck. These regions also have many lesser known, and therefore less busy, destinations just waiting to be discovered.

Nicknamed the “Paris of the East,” Budapest is Hungary’s thriving capital city known for its thermal baths and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There are plenty of cultural attractions to keep your itinerary full, including Castle Hill and its medieval history to beautiful churches, classic concerts and quaint outdoor cafes.  From soaking in the city’s famous baths to river cruises down the Danube, here are the best things to do in Budapest.

Marvel at Buda Castle

Start your exploration of Budapest at Castle Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 11th century when protective walls were created to keep Mongolian attackers out. Towering over the Danube, the 18th century Buda Castle is a massive 200-room palace that houses the Hungarian National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum. Make sure to see the other iconic landmarks on Castle Hill, such as Matthias Church, to admire its beautiful architecture and learn about its historical symbolism.

Soak in the Széchenyi Baths Considered a quintessential Budapest experience, you can’t leave the city without soaking in its thermal baths.

The bustling area attracts international investors and diplomats

A classic beauty draped along the ancient Danube River, Budapest is a vibrant capital city and one of Europe’s most populous. It’s a global center of art, architecture, fashion, politics and commerce that attracts an international crowd. The city is marked by 23 districts, with District V at the business, political and historical center of Budapest.

“District V makes up the heart of Budapest, the political, financial, commercial and tourist center of Hungary,” said Kornélia Pásztor of Engel & Völkers Budapest. “The name of the district is Belváros-Lipótváros (Inner City-Leopold Town), referring to the two historical neighborhoods located in the district. Leopold Town was established in the early 19th century, and became the political and financial center of Hungary in the early 20th century when theHungarian Parliament was built.”

“The District V neighborhood is a totally different market than the rest of the city,” said Daniel Toth, co-founder of Matthew & Daniel’s Realty Budapest. “There is a limited number of homes, and there are no empty plots available where you can build new buildings.”
