Budapest The guide was updated:Budapest is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, the result of historical turbulence and a plethora of influences which can be seen in the amazing mix of architecture, cuisine and culture that visitors can revel in. Close to the west, it is a realistic destination for short weekend breaks. It is also the ideal place for honeymoons or romantic getaways; the city is small enough to walk most of the sights and completely safe. Though many tourist attraction have fees, there is a lot to be seen and absorbed just walking the streets, parks, markets and of course the peaceful Buda Hills.
