Budapest Family Travel Guide


The Hungarian capital, Budapest, is situated on the banks of the Danube in Central Europe. It’s the political, economic and cultural heart of the nation, and one of the most beautiful and livable cities on the continent.

For a sweeping overview of the city head to the Buda side of the Danube and take in the views from the 19th century ramparts on Gellért Hill. Just upriver is Budapest’s oldest area, The Castle District, home to Buda Castle, Matthias Church and Fisherman’s Bastion.

Once you’ve explored the heights of Castle Hill, cross the Széchenyi Chain Bridge to the Pest side of the city and follow the riverbank upstream to Hungary’s Parliament Building. Nearby, pay your respects at the Shoes on the Danube Memorial, a sobering tribute to the thousands who were executed here during The Second World War.

After admiring the magnificent dome of St. Stephen’s Basilica, allow yourself to be swept up Andrassy Avenue. This world heritage listed boulevard opens out onto Heroes’ Square and City Park. The park is home to the Széchenyi Thermal Baths, just one of the city’s many lavish bathhouses. For many in Budapest, “taking the waters” is a weekly ritual.

Whether it’s the sparkling Danube or the thermal springs, there’s something truly rejuvenating in the water here. So when you’re ready to experience moments of refection, inspiration, and sublime beauty, come to Budapest, you’re sure to come away rejuvenated too.

  3. I just started my youtube channel. Please help me out guys and subscribe to my channel. I have some good content coming up

  4. backpacked through Eastern Europe last year around this time. Budapest was absolutely breathtaking. I walked all around the Castle district until meet feet started to hurt and still danced all night. If you need a cheap hostel, stay at the Full Moon Hostel, close to Club Remix(Don't go there, its awful) the hostel has a club attached to it that you get free entry into with your stay in the hostel for only 10 euros. Club Tesla is a good place to stop at if you like EDM and House music, danced all night by myself. The gay bars are awesome too…anyway, I love Budapest, definitely going back…

  5. Khnawher 2910Dear Expedia, I just would like to let you know that your Vacation Travel Guides are just breathtaking. The way the cities are filmed and how hall the information about them is expressed is simply amazing! But, in my personal opinion, the biggest wonder in your videos is the music. It fits perfectly with what is shown in the video and it keeps your eyes glued to the screen till the end gently comes. At this point I would love to know who is the composer of so much beauty. I implore you Expedia, make my dream (and probably  the one of many other people) became true.
