Tips for preparing for your trip
A city trip to Budapest is in fact a journey to two cities. Originally, Buda and Pest were independent towns that were separated by the River Danube. Two cities with their own character, which is still visible today: Pest is busy and dynamic, Buda more quiet and laid back. That offers opportunities. Although once separated, Buda and Pest together form a beautiful whole. For people looking for cultural inspiration, Budapest is an exciting destination.
