Budapest

Plan a vacation in Budapest and experience its fantastic range of attractions.

The population of this area of Hungary is roughly 1,700,000.

Let the kids blow off some steam at Aquaworld Budapest and the Budapest Castle Hill Funicular. TRAP Team Race Against Puzzles and Team Escape are also great places to visit if the little ones still have energy to burn.

Bring along some lunch and take five in the tranquil, green surroundings of Margaret Island Park and City Park. Liberty Square and Szent István Park are two more nice places to while away the afternoon and catch up on some reading.

Nature-loving locals often head to Palvolgyi Cave and Gellért Hill & The Tabán when they want to find some tranquility.

You'll discover a great deal of informative stories and quirky facts within the halls of the diverse museums here. The best places are the Marzipan Museum, the Museum of Drums and the Lamp Museum.

To learn more about history's greatest scientific breakthroughs, stop in at TIT Planetarium or the Palace of Wonders. It will be a great day of discovery for young and old alike.

Immerse yourself in art and design at the numerous gallery and exhibition spaces. Spend a stimulating day bouncing between the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian National Gallery and the Museum of Applied Arts.

History comes to life at the Hungarian National Museum and the Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum thanks to their wide range of informative displays. The Hungarian Jewish Museum and Archives and the Kossuth Museum are also prominent options.

To learn about the events and people who shaped this place, plan to visit at least one of its many remaining historical sites. Start your history lesson at Parliament Building and the Semmelweis University. More stories from the days of old await at Aquincum Museum and Ruin Garden and the Eotvos Lorand University.

Szechenyi Chain Bridge and Liberty Bridge are impressive examples of engineering ingenuity that will survive for years to come.

Fisherman's Bastion and Citadella act as reminders of Budapest's military history. As you run a hand along their scarred walls, spare a thought for those who bravely toiled to defend their homes.

After a day at Vajdahunyad Castle or Buda Castle, you just might feel like you're back in the days of knights in shining armor! For even more striking views and historical insights, go forth and explore Visegrad Citadel and Zsambek Castle.

Whether you think of yourself as spiritual or not, you'll be sure to enjoy a trip to St. Stephen's Basilica and the Dohany Street Synagogue. If you want to see a couple more religious sites, head to Matthias Church and Inner City Parish Church.

At the heart of most city squares you'll find some kind of plaza or statue, but it is the stories of each space and the characters that inhabit them that make them really special. While exploring, make sure you take the path through Heroes' Square or Szechenyi Istvan Square. The locals are sure to also point you in the direction of Blaha Lujza Square and Main Square.

Reflect on the stories of the residents who helped make Budapest the place it is today at some of its memorial sites, such as the Memento Park and the Liberty Statue. The Trinity Square and Gul Baba's Tomb are also well worth stopping by.

If you'd like to take a look at where the great minds of tomorrow are shaped, plan a visit to the Loránd Eötvös Science University. Take a walk around campus, inspect the facilities and ask around to see if there are any open days or tours.

Take advantage of this area's reputation as a great place to shop. Buy a new outfit, grab some groceries or just enjoy the atmosphere at Arena Plaza Shopping Mall and WestEnd City Center. You're also bound to be impressed with the huge selection at Great Market Hall and Budapest Christmas Market.

If you take an interest in the arts, buy some tickets, settle in to your seat and prepare for a night of entertainment at Hungarian State Opera House or the National Theater. You could also flip through the program at Vigado Concert Hall or the Comedy Theatre of Budapest.

After experiencing all of the star attractions around Budapest, make time to explore a few of its lesser-known sights. Vaci Street and Kiraly Baths are a couple of worthwhile options. Also, think about visiting Andrassy Avenue and Elisabeth Bridge if you have time.
