One of the coolest capital cities
Budapest is a beautiful and eclectic capital city. Both ancient and modern, fancy and simple, buzzing with life and full of reclusive spaces, it is brimming with things to see and do. It hosts a wide range of cultural events: festivals, concerts, exhibitions, fairs, sporting events and national celebrations happen all year round. The city is renowned for its colourful cultural life. There are also many theaters, concert halls and a gorgeous opera house through-out the city. There is even a theater that regularly presents plays in English, as well. If museums are your passion, Budapest has an exciting pallette for you with nearly 100 museums and exhibitions. Budapest abounds in natural treasures – such as parks, gardens, reserves, arboretums and other green spaces – making it one of the most beautiful capitals in the world.
Budapest is called the ’City of Baths’ due to its richness in thermal waters with healing qualities. Thermal baths in Budapest offer more than just pools. There are saunas, steam baths, aroma cabins, massage parlors, as well as on-site health care professionals offering physiotherapy and aqua-therapy.
Due to the favourable climate, Hungary produces tasty fruits and vegetables that you can buy in the markets at reasonable price. Whichever season may you go shopping, do try some seasonal stuff. The food markets of Budapest are good places to buy Hungaricums (authentic Hungarian food and beverage specialities), as well, such as lángos. The commute to any and all of these fun and interesting events, locations and programs is made easy by the city’s friendly mass-transportation.
