Activities in Budapest
BudapestAmong travellers, Budapest is known as the "Pearl of the Danube" and there are a lot of reasons to pay a visit to the Hungarian capital. Budapest breathes history in its streets, with their smell of coffee, fresh peppers and roasted tomatoes. Its past has left its traces in the form of countless churches, towers and fortified buildings on both sides of the Danube. Whether on a visit to the coronation church of the Hungarian kings, a trip to the Fisherman's Bastion or a guided tour through the mystical castle district with ist secret passages, rock caves and not least the changing of the guard, the option for culture lovers is vast. Also worth experiencing is the nightlife. The Ruinenbars are typical of the "Paris of the East" and mark an interesting contrast to the cultivated coffee house culture. Also typical is the bathhouse culture, which, thanks to the hot thermal springs, has been present in Budapest for almost 2,000 years. For those who are looking for the right place to spend a relaxing spa weekend in a culturally attractive metropolis, Budapest is the place to be.
