Your flight to Budapest in Hungary
Treat yourself to a holiday destination full of beautiful architecture, unrivalled wellness offers and great nightlife and get a flight to Budapest. The Hungarian capital on the banks of the Danube River combines the old world feeling of a centuries old city with the vibrant atmosphere of a young and lively population. Apart from the sightseeing Budapest is known for its great hot mineral springs under the city, which feed hundreds of spas and wellness temples.
Sights of BudapestA great way to get a first impression is a tour on a riverboat. When you glide up and down the river under magnificent bridges, you see landmarks like the Gellért Hotel, the old castle palace on its hill overlooking the town and the university. For Budapest and all of Hungary the St. Stephens Basilica is a near mythic symbol. Stephen I was the first King of Hungary and brought Christianity to the Hungarians, who were feared as godless raiders in the early Middle Ages. Don’t miss the great historic bathhouses like Rudas, Lukács, Széchenyi and Király, spas that are inexpensive and beautiful. The hot springs that feed these traditional houses are stretching through a cave system under the city. You can actually take a guided scuba diving tour through these caves. Some divers say it is the most extraordinary diving tour in the world.
Fine food, great wines and a fun night outGive the traditional Hungarian food a chance to enchant you: Gulyásleves and Pörkölt, variations of goulash, Halászlé, a fish soup of river fish from the Danube, Hortobágyi palacsinta, a Hungarian chicken wrap, the list goes on for a while. For each meal you can have a different wine like the legendary Tokaji and the red wine Bull's Blood of Eger. To help digest the meal you should try the traditional herbal liqueur called Unicum, served for this very purpose since 150 years. With this reservoir of energy you are prepared for a party night like nowhere else. The party quarter is the VIIth district, where lots of bars and clubs try to lure the party people onto their dancefloors and to their bars, where the moderate prices for drinks are a bonus. Enjoy your time in Budapest!
