In 2016 I have been on a three day citytrip to Budapest. I really love this city. Budapest is the capital of Hungary and has some amazing architecture. There is also a great pubstreet and everything is very affordable in comparison with other European cities. But the best thing I did in Budapest was visiting the Thermal Baths.
The two banks of Budapest
Budapest is separated in two parts; Buda the west bank and the east bank Pest. They are dividid by de Danube river. There are four bridges connecting the two districts. The bridge you should definitely cross is Chain Bridge. From this bridge you have a great view on the beautiful buildings of Budapest.
Buda is the hilly part where you can witness an incredible panorama view from the Fisherman’s Bastion. To get an even better view, you can climb Géllert Hill. If you are more interested in some history, you have to visit the two museums inside the Buda Castle, better known as Castle Hill. On a hot summerday, you can cool down in the caves underneath Buda.
On the other side of the Donau river is Pest. It’s the part with the lively areas, big restaurants and great shoppingstreets. In Pest, you can find a park called Városliget Park, which is a must-see. This park offers a lot and is great for a nice walk. You can visit tons of museums, such as an agriculture or transport museum, but you also can spend a day in the Zoo or see the amazing Vajdahunyad castle. To end the day, you can relax in the best thermal baths.
I love Budapest for the many thermal baths and there are plenty of them in the city. Most of the baths are more than a century old. There are approximately thousand natural spring water sources in the whole country. These baths are truly amazing and definitely a must do in Budapest. You can enjoy a great swim and relax from walking through the beautiful city while enjoying great architecture.
