Along the Danube

Budapest is one of the most beautiful magical places I have been. It reminds me of a less commercialized Paris or Barcelona

Budapest

If Budapest doesn’t immediately strike you as a watery destination, think again: Hungary’s capitol city is blessed with more than 500 thermal and mineral springs. “Taking the waters” has been a popular pastime here since the days of the Roman Empire; and the city today is scattered with hundreds of bathhouses, mineral pools, and spas where you can indulge in kind. Some of these facilities are slick and modern (most luxury hotels have their own); others date to the region’s 16th-century Ottoman occupation, and are framed by Moorish arches and colonnades. There’s no wrong time to hit the baths in Budapest; depending on the time of day, you might share your pool with local families or honeymooning couples. But it’s said that a soak can be particularly helpful “morning after” cure—a balm for what locals call a macskajaj (“cat’s wail” or hangover).

Want to sample another flavor of European culture? Enjoy Swiss hospitality, award-winning cuisine and personal service on your way to Budapest, when you fly SWISS.

Sunset On The Danube

Budapest is a great walking city, especially along the river on both the Buda and Pest sides.

Metro in Budapest

Metro (subway) is a very convenient way to travel in Budapest. Just remember to hold on to the rail - the long escalator ride almost seems endless, and you can't really see one end from the other.

Witness the Rebirth of Eastern Europe

For decades, the world beyond the Iron Curtain was shrouded in mystery for American travelers. Today, young democratic nations are embracing visitors with welcome arms, ready to share their time-honed traditions. Grand Circle Cruise Line’s Eastern Europe to the Black Sea explores five Eastern European nations—Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania—and provides special insight into the sights and sounds encountered there. As is the case with every Grand Circle Cruise Line vacation, groups of no more than 47 American travelers are accompanied by an expert Program Director—a native or resident of Eastern Europe—ready to share the local perspective onboard the ship and on land. In addition to providing historical context and personal recommendations as you sail all the way to the Black Sea, they’ll candidly address the controversial topics that will better shape your understanding and experience. As they share personal stories about life under communism or insights into the economic and political challenges faced by Eastern European nations, you’ll get the insider’s perspective.

Budapest

The last, but certainly not least, port of call on Avalon’s itinerary is Budapest, an enchanting city of Gothic architecture that spans the Danube River. Once you are through walking the bridges that connect Buda and Pest and taking in historic sites on the Avalon tour, soothe your muscles in one (or two) of the spas the city is known for. The neo-Baroque Széchenyi spa, fed by thermal springs, contains 18 pools, while the Rudas bath, which dates from 1550, features an ornate octagonal pool set beneath a Turkish dome.

Danube River Cruise; Adventures by Disney

The year 2015 marked the maiden voyage of the Mouse (a.k.a. Disney) into river cruising, and this all-inclusive 8-day, 7-night voyage through Europe is a winner. Sailings are operated by AmaWaterways, and stop in Vilshofen, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Budapest (to name a few). At each port, activities are geared toward families. In Austria, for instance, one of the popular excursions is a visit to the Tree Path Kopfing, an elevated boardwalk in the middle of a forest; in Budapest, many passengers opt to experience the original Rubik's Cube magic show. Disney welcomes kids ages 4 and up, but notes that the trip is best for children who are least 8.

Weekend markets - Budapest, Hungary

The main road Andrássy avenue is closed over the weekend for markets. Many food stands, wine shops and craft shops are setup along the street. You can stroll down the street, taste different food, and burn the calories by walk more. It's miles long walk, and you will pass the Opera House and Heros' Square.

I don't know what this pancake called, but they are super tasty - made with shredded potatoes.

Doorway in Budapest

Doorway of one of the buildings that caught my eye. Yes it's just a door, but sometimes you need to stop and admire the craftsmanship and beauty of the simple things we take for granted.

Budapest Comes Alive on Váci utca

Locals and tourists alike converge on busy Váci utca, a boulevard full of shops, restaurants, and some bigger name retail stores. The street also leads to Vörösmarty Square. Day or night, Váci utca is definitely a street worth exploring.
