Hey Budapest, You Sure Are Stunning Part 2

The Hungarian capital has been repeatedly named one of the most beautiful cities, not only in Europe, but in the whole world. Everything about Budapest is stunning – the atmosphere, the architecture, the parks and bridges…

A trip to Budapest will enrich you in ways you won’t believe. Feast your senses on Europe’s most charming child.

Explore The Labyrinth of Buda Castle

The Labyrinth of Buda Castle is one of the seven wonders of the underground world.

The police raided it in 2011 and forced everyone to evacuate immediately, which only added even more mystery to it.

It since re-opened, but only 1 mile of the 6 mile long labyrinth can be visited.

Walk around the misty former prison, under the light of a single candle, where its most famous prisoner Vlad Tepes himself (better known as Count Dracula), was held in captivity by Hungarian King Matthias Corvinus during the 15th century.

Hike Up Gellért Hill to the Citadella

From the Elisabeth Bridge, hike up the sets of stairs and paths for a stunning panorama over both Buda and Pest from the Citadella. Once a fortress built by the Habsburgs in 1854, it was an important strategic point to see over all of Budapest.

BE Amazed At The

Located on the Castle Hill, the neo-gothic terrace of the Fisherman’s Bastion provides panoramic views of this wonderful city. Make sure to explore the seven ornate turrets of the structure, which symbolize the tents of the seven Magyar tribe leaders who settled the Carpathian Basin in 896. That ultimately lead to the existence of modern-day Hungary.

Shop At The Central Market Hall

The Central Market Hall was built in the 19th century and it’s the largest indoor market in Budapest. The focus is on typical Hungarian products; the first floor is the food hall and the second floor reserved for souvenirs and traditional Hungarian embroidery.

Dine And Wine The Hungarian Way

Budapest is packed with local establishments that serve Hungarian cuisine of highest quality, at reasonable prices. It’s always best to ask the locals where they eat. Don’t forget to pair your meal with a glass of lovely Tokaji. Also, don’t forget to try out Hungarian fresh pastries, truffles, and coffee drinks.
