If you are planning to visit Budapest as a tourist, you need to be well prepared. You can do this by spending hours on Google, but you can also choose the convenience of calling a local resident. He or she will tell you exactly where to find the best places in the city. From museums to parks and from wine bars to romantic restaurants. Who knows better than a local?
The cultural capital of Europe
Budapest is seen by some as the cultural capital of Europe. Its history, buildings, parks, and art show the remains of various occupations. The Turkish influences are strongest in, for example, the Gellért bathhouse.
The capital of Hungary suffered years under a strict communist regime, but today there is not much of that to be seen. Since the fall of the wall in 1989, the city has developed into a modern metropolis where it is brimming with life.
