In a city that goes back to the Old Stone Age, history buffs may choose among Roman, neo-Gothic, Renaissance, and Ottoman architecture at locations such as Buda Castle and Fisherman's Bastion. Budapest is more than just Hungary's political capital; it's also the country's business and cultural hub. Culture pervades virtually every inch of the Pearl of the Danube, from its diverse culinary scene to its strong Jewish past. Budapest, divided by the Danube River and divided into three main areas – Pest, Buda, and Obuda – combines modern comforts with old buildings and green parks. Whether you're looking for gastronomy, shopping, or museums, Budapest has a plethora of options. And the prices are reasonable enough that you won't have to choose - you can eat them all.

The months of March to May, as well as September to November, are ideal for a vacation to Budapest. During the shoulder seasons, the weather is beautiful and the city isn't overrun with tourists. The climate, on the other hand, is always quite pleasant, with temperatures rarely surpassing tolerable levels. Average highs in July and August are in the upper 70s, while average lows in January are in the mid-20s. Despite the fact that it is the warmest and wettest time of year, tourists flock to the city in the summer.
