Budapest to add to your to-visit list

This reputation has been further established in the press of late with a fantastic travel article giving further reasons ‘why Budapest should be on your to-visit list’. From the city’s cobbled lanes to the best Hungarian restaurants to sample during a stop off on Danube escorted river cruises, the article from Daily Life travel writer Tatyana Leonov offers plenty more reasons to visit this great European city.

The beauty of Budapest

The Australia-based publication has a loyal following so guests of European river cruise holidays could be seeing a few more of their Australian peers in the capital this summer. While the article details all the famous landmarks and features of Budapest that we would typically associate with the city, it also goes on to give examples of great restaurants and some of the city’s turbulent history.

Detailing its rise since the collapse of communism in 1989, the article offers a great amount of background to further enhance any visitor’s trip to Budapest that can be greatly supplemented by some of the fantastic tours that Emerald Waterways’ guests receive during their time in Hungary.

Offering a frank and honest view about the friendly rivalry between Buda and Pest, the article goes on to describe the best places to visit within both areas and the ultimate ways in which to see the city.

When talking about getting around Budapest, Leonov credits the tram and metro systems in the city ‘but for those beyond the city centre’ nothing is better than the view that can be captured by a Danube river cruise. With so much to see and explore in the city, this article offers a great summary for those looking to plan their visit to Hungary, where many attractions and sights also featuring in the itineraries of Emerald Waterways cruises passing through Budapest.
