You are likely to be staying in Pest, on the eastern side of the Danube and Buda is the hilly west bank, known as Castle Hill which deserves plenty of time. The city of Budapest is a standing celebration of Hungarian culture and power, and the sheer scale of it’s vast iconic buildings, from the castle to the Parliament to the Gellért Baths, testifies to Hungary’s central role in European history.
Castles of Hungary. There about a hundred castles and castle ruins throughout Hungary. Worth a detour to explore, starting with the largest that is Buda Castle.
Gastro Adventures on the Danube Bend. Whether you are a real gourmet basing a journey primarily on gastro experiences or a visitor just wishing to get better acquainted with the best places for a snack or a dinner and some of the typical products of the region, then a custom-made trip out of the capital will be your cup of tea. A chance to taste “lángos” a kind of fried flat bread with cream and cheese, you definitely shouldn’t miss the opportunity. And Szamos is one of the most famous names when it comes to desserts. Their well-known product is marzipan. And worth mentioning a small chocolate and candy shop Edeni Csokizo (Heavenly Chocolate Shop).
