Budapest described as the 'Paris of the East'

One of Britain’s most successful newspapers, the Daily Star, has featured an article on why Budapest is the place to be. Celebrating the city’s unique cuisine, thought-provoking museums and its interesting history, the article offers a first-hand account of what guests of Eastern river cruise holidays have known for years- that Budapest is an incredible destination.

A unique atmosphere

Described by travel writer Taskin Rahman, in this article, as a place with a ‘unique’ atmosphere where ‘people with warm hearts but cold faces and beautiful architecture make Budapest the Paris of the east’ it may come as no surprise that the number of visitors to this culture-rich city are as prevalent as ever.

Offering insider details of the best coffee shops and bars as well as the top highlights that visitors should make time for during a stay in the capital, the article gives a real flavour for the city before you have even stepped foot in Pest. With the Hungarian National Museum and the Budapest Holocaust Memorial Center all on the list of must-sees, the article really celebrates the city as a place of culture that appeals to all tastes and holiday preferences.

With rooms still available on the Emerald Waterways 2014 Danube river cruise and plenty of dates to choose from in 2015, the article can act as a great introduction to a river cruise holiday to Budapest, where guests can enjoy all of the aforementioned highlights and much more as a part of the extensive Emerald Waterways itinerary. From the Hungarian National Gallery to Matthias Church and the iconic Budapest Chain Bridge, a trip with Emerald Waterways is one to remember.
