Our beautiful capital came ahead of popular cities such as London, Paris and Barcelona.
European Best Destinations (EBD) is an online initiative to find the most popular city to visit in Europe. This year, between January 15 and February 5, for the tenth edition of the competition, more than half a million travellers voted for their favourite European destinations.
Budapest got the majority of the votes, in total it means 62,128 votes (77 percent of which came from abroad), so our capital won the first place. Braga, Portugal took the second place and Monte Isola in Italy came in third.
EBD writes on their website about Budapest that ‘the pearl of the Danube is not only the best European destination, it is also one of the most beautiful and safest cities in the world. Budapest offers the elegance of Paris, the architectural heritage of Vienna, the charm of Porto and Stockholm’s gentle way of life’.
