"Paris of Central Europe"
The Queen of the Danube combines centuries old architecture and rich cultural heritage with the latest features of modern life insuring an unforgettable traveling experience.
Budapest is a sprawling city split by the mighty Danube River into two halves, ancient Buda and modern Pest, which are linked by a series of bridges. Both sides of the river claim places on the UNESCO world heritage list including the highlights of the Buda Castle, Danube Embankment and Andrassy Avenue. The city is well laid-out with broad avenues and can be traversed by foot but there is also excellent public transport. It is easy to escape the crowds of tourists as the city sights are spread out throughout the city.
"For the money, this was just a spectacular vacation. Our expectations
for the trip were exceeded on almost every level. Either we're the
luckiest people on Earth, or JayWay Travel is an extremely well executed travel agency."
Unlike Western Europe, Budapest is quite affordable as they are a few years away from adoption of the Euro. In Budapest you can taste wines produced throughout the country that have a reputation as some of the best in Central & Eastern Europe. The cuisine of Budapest consists of meats and heavier spicy dishes with paprika as a key ingredient, goulash is a dish not to be missed. Hungarians are especially proud of their musical contributions and this is evident with performances nightly around the city.
