Budapest weekends & short breaks 2020

Budapest is a city rich in history, clad with streets of stunning royal architecture and home to world-famous thermal pools. 

Beyond the city’s deep history rests a love of art and music which manifests itself in the crazy ruin bars and street festivals that run throughout the summer. 

What type of holiday does Budapest offer?

Some of the most important landmarks in Budapest include the Hungarian Parliament building, a stunning architectural behemoth that sits next to the Danube; the shoes on the Danube, a sobering art piece to commemorate those shot on the river side in WWII; the Szechenyi bridge which connects Buda with Pest, and where you can see some of the best views in town.

Budapest is rich in political history , and you will see remnants of this throughout the city. Not only that, it’s famous for its wealth of thermal pools, which are fed by around 120 hot springs. You can even sit in a thermal bath on the roof top and watch the city go by!

Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport is around a 15-minute journey by train into central Budapest or 40 minutes by car.

Budapest is great for:

  • City breaks - Budapest is surrounded by some of Europe’s most exciting cities, including Vienna and Prague, making it an ideal short break as you can hire a car and see some spectacular sights.
  • Cheap holiday - Budapest is a great city if you are on a budget. You can eat and drink well for a reasonable cost and the metro, buses and trams result in a good public transport network, meaning you can get around for a great price.
