Essentially two cities in one, Buda and Pest, Budapest is now firmly established as one of Europe’s most enchanting destinations.

Buda emanates tranquility and romance, offering spectacular views from the Citadella and Fishermen’s Bastion. Across the Danube river the spectacular Hungarian Parliament building, St. Stephen’s Basilica, leafy Andrássy avenue and the Jewish Quarter all sit in vibrant, bustling Pest.

A two day trip in 'The Pearl of the Danube', is just enough time to get a taste of what Hungary's capital city has to offer.
