What makes Budapest so special?

Budapest is one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe. Historically, Budapest is an amalgamation of the three cities of Buda and Óbuda to the west of the Danube and Pest to the east. Both sides of the Danube have plenty of sights to offer. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Castle Palace on Castle Hill in Buda, or the magnificent Parliament Building in Pest. The many picturesque Art Nouveau buildings and winding alleys look especially romantic in the evening sun.

Budapest is famous for its many historic coffee houses, which were once a centre of cultural activity and still invite you to linger. You can also find relaxation in the city’s world-famous thermal baths. After sunset, another special feature of the city awaits you: its lively and vibrant nightlife. You will find plenty of opportunities to party in Budapest.

Budapest’s continental climate makes for cold winters and hot summers. In spring or late summer and autumn, pleasant temperatures invite you to explore the city. This is the best time to fly to Budapest.
