Budapest: A "Queen" on Danube

Budapest: A "Queen" on Danube

Most Greeks have gone or want to go to Budapest, the capital of Hungary, considered one of Europe's most beautiful cities and one of the most important winter (and not only) tourist destinations.

Those who have almost fallen in love with her are, after all, a romantic destination for lovers and married people. It is also one of the cities where you will find endless information and videos online. After a short internet browsing it will be like if you have visited it with so many travelers discovering its secrets!

Budapest has everything, but even more ... it has the Danube. The imposing river that crosses and divides it into two in Buddha and in Pest. It also has the imposing Margaret island, an island lush in the middle of the Danube that is crowded daily, but mostly on Saturdays and Sundays. It is a floating-park for rest, walking, jogging and of course for food and entertainment.


Where to stay, in Buddha or Pest

The trick to enjoying Budapest is if you answer correctly the question of staying in Buddha or Pest, because the city is really two cities in one that joined in 1873. Buddha is on the west bank of the Danube and Pest on east with the suspension bridge joining them from 1849 when the "Chain Bridge" was built. If one prefers the view of the Danube from above and before heading for the city lights, he wants the Buddha hills to be the right choice. If you are looking for a more intense nightlife without going uphill upon your return home then Lowland is the right choice.

Usually those who have walked the Hungarian capital tune in to "visit Buddha, stay in Pest". Buddha is more ... aristocratic because palaces and baths, impressive buildings and an outdoor swimming pool were built there. Pest is a shopping center, with shops, cafés, restaurants and bars.

What to taste in Buddha and Pest

If you love 'dirty' then you will find 'Street Food Karavan' in the Jewish Quarter. It's kind of like a small van with small van making and selling fast food! At a restaurant of your choice you should definitely try 'goulash' is a veal soup, there is a stuffed 'punjena paprika' and a 'lángos' reminiscent of pineapple. For confectionery the "Kürtős" is a chocolate dough sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.
