Budapest

13/11/2019

We all need that mini break before things start becoming more difficult for us. As 2019 is coming to an end, we are all very busy trying to finish all the massive work that always comes with the end of the year.

Projects need to come to an end, goals need to be achieved, tasks need to be finished, students need to finish their paperwork etc. Everyone will be busy these remaining weeks of 2019, but that doesn’t mean that we are not allowed of a mini break.

You totally deserve those 3-4 days of break to prepare for a whole new year that will certainly require all your efforts and attention.

We suggest Budapest as your last-minute destination. Many people are unaware of the wonders they will find in this magical city.

Budapest will definitely surprise you. It is filled with beautiful monuments, fairytale castles, picturesque parks and many more. Budapest offers a rich architecture and a historical heritage that is worth knowing about. 3-4 days in this beautiful city will give you a total joy.

The city is divided by the river Danube, which splits it into two. On one side, it is Buda with Ottoman-era thermal baths, the Royal Palace, Matthias Church, etc., which is considered more as a calm and peaceful part. While the other side, Pest, is totally vibrant and lively. This part is filled with museums, Art Nouveau architecture, the Parliament building is located there, Saint Stephen’s Basilica surrounded by pedestrian street, the Jewish Quarter and Palace District. This part of Budapest is also filled with beautiful murals, sculptures, ruin bars which are a must and many more.

Ruin Bars which are very famous in Budapest were created from a group of young people who managed to turn old houses in the city centre into bars, decorating them with whatever they could find on the streets. These bars are now a touristic attraction.
