Posted by Mia Balogh · Apr 12, 2019

After European Best Destinations placed Budapest first, here is a new compilation with our capital also featured – not first, but definitely in the top 10.

Budapest was recently ranked as 17th on Tripadvisor’s top European destinations list. They highlight the ‘sparkling treasures’ of our capital but also note that history, culture and natural beauty can also be seen here.

“Budapest’s 118 springs and boreholes. The city of spas offers an astounding array of baths, from the sparkling Gellért Baths to the vast 1913 neo-baroque Széchenyi Spa to Rudas Spa, a dramatic 16th-century Turkish pool with original Ottoman architecture. The “Queen of the Danube” is also steeped in history, culture and natural beauty. Get your camera ready for the Roman ruins of the Aquincum Museum, Heroes’ Square and Statue Park, and the 300-foot dome of St. Stephen’s Basilica” – they write.
