Budapest is a very memorable city. I remember all the places we visited as if only a few months had passed. I treasure the images I left with. Although it reminds me of other cities I’ve visited Budapest has a uniqueness that is strictly its own.
Budapest has a complex and rich history. It has been occupied by the Romans, the Huns, the Turks, the Austrians, and the Germans to name a few. Buda is the side you want to visit if you like historical places, museums, and beautiful pictures. Pest offers more of the restaurants and shopping places. Both have great views of the Danube river and parts of the city. Both places also have great food.
Budapest ranks second on my family’s top five favorite destinations list. Even the chilly February weather didn’t hamper the great time my family experienced there. A few places we will never forget:
- Shoes on the Danube Promenade
- Buda Castle & Castle Hill
- Budapest History Museum
- Matthias Church
As usual, I included lots of pictures, useful links and tips, and brief descriptions. I hope you enjoy it and hope it helps you on your travels.
