Budapest Vacation

About Budapest

Hungary's capital Budapest is actually two cities joined, Buda and Pest. Buda is the area on the western side of the River Danube and Pest is the area in the river's eastern side. Its picturesque scenery and impressive architecture have earned it the nickname "The Paris of the East" and a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List (specifically for buildings along the Danube, Andrassy Avenue and the Castle Quarter). Budapest is a lively, bustling city with lots for visitors to explore, including nearly two thousand years of history. Flights to Budapest are a gateway to excellent live music, food, culture and nightlife.
