The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Budapest

The ultimate beginner’s guide to Budapest, the Hungarian capital. This city has become a very popular city trip destination. The city was once known as the cheaper alternative for Paris or London, but that is no longer the case. The massive crowds have discovered Budapest, with the inevitable long lines of (Chinese) tourist buses. Yet the city has maintained its characteristic charm. A weekend in Budapest flew by way too quick.
