Budapest, Hungary – Europe #21 [VIDEO]

Coming from Eastern Europe, Budapest felt very much like the gateway to Western Europe – one example is the train system: in Budapest the trains finally leave on time – such subtle changes, but very noticeable.

But the city still has that Eastern feel and tradition, where being offered a shot of plum brandy in the morning is nothing strange at all!

It’s a city with many things to see and do, a place where you can come any time of the year and it will still be beautiful and you can still have fun.

    I was in Budapest for a long weekend in may this year, and was really pleasantly surprised. Its such a beautiful city, with so much to see and do. The architecture seems so varied, and yet seems to fit together well. I may never go back, but I’ll never forget it. Such an easy city to get round. D

    Such a pity that you were there for such a short time. I spent 1 week there and it wasn’t enough. I love Budapest. BTW, just a little detail – the ‘s’ in pest is pronounced ‘sh’ as in ‘shut’.

      Yeah it’s a shame, fortunately we’ve been there before and will probably be going back there again :) Thanks for pointing out the pronouncing mistake.

    Loved the video!  I mean of course it didnt seem long enough but at least you were able to visit twice.  I would to be able to go in the near future. Budapest is just one place of many on the list.

    Thanks Thomas, Budapest is a great city to visit, but yes, ideally you would have more time there!
    It’s fairly easy to visit as many European budget airlines fly there, like wizz air. Hope you get to visit soon :)

    Hi guys, I’m beginning to wonder if Nathan has the world’s largest collection of checked shirts known to man! Great video of a beautiful city, shame you didn’t have more time.  Next time visit Statue Park!

    Have added the video to The Bloggers Guide To Hungary.  Look forward to the next one.

    Kind regards, Si
