Getting Hungary for International Travel

My hunger for an international trip is ravenous. With our travel to China and Scotland a year behind us, we're ready to hop on a plane for somewhere new.

In a few weeks, we’re headed for Budapest.

We’ll be staying in central Budapest, and we look forward to really getting to explore the city. The iconic Hungarian Parliament Building, formal Royal Palace, State Opera House, twin-towered, Chain Bridge, Basilica of St. Stephen, Great Synagogue, Buda Castle, Fisherman’s bastion, and thermal baths—not to mention the foods and spirits.

Having an apartment centrally located—and a rental car—allows us the freedom to travel abroad while we’re abroad. Within Hungary, we plan to visit Eger, Tokaj, Balatonlelle, and Pecs. Beyond the Hungarian boarders, we plan to visit Bratislava, Slovakia; Vienna, Austria; Rejeka and Zagreb, Croatia;  and Ljubljana, Slovenia.

But even with all of those nearby destinations, the heart of the trip will be getting to know Budapest.

If you were in Budapest for a few weeks, what would be at the top of your list?
