I wish that was the case and not just a bunch of song lyrics.
I never considered going on a vacation to another city as a ‘holiday’ after having grew up in one. Not to mention, wheres the sun, sea & sand? However, the opportunity arose and i was not about to let it pass. There was not much planning in it at all, it was one of those “Shall we go to Budapest?” “Yes!” moments. We booked our flights from Stansted Airport and a studio apartment and we were off.
The first and main thing you notice instantly about Budapest is the architecture. Streets lined with buildings all beautifully unique. From Classicism and Renaissance to Art-Nouveau and Gothic style buildings all making a lasting impression.
Fancy getting in touch with history, art and culture? Then visit Heroes Square. The largest square in Budapest. It is minutes from City Park and is known for the large statues of the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other national leaders. It is also the location of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Then, at either side you have two major buildings; Museum of Fine Arts on the left and Kunsthalle (Hall of Art) on the right.
I would also recommend visiting other places including City Park, Saint Stephens Basilica and one of many Ruin Bars.
There’s plenty of opportunities for a ‘selfie’ no matter where you decide to go…
