Unique sights

Once your flight to Budapest touches down, it’s time to start exploring. Visit the banks of the River Danube, where you’ll find the spectacular spires of the Hungarian Parliament Building, the epic Chain Bridge and Buda Castle looking down from its hilltop home. Make sure you tick off Heroes’ Square and St. Stephen’s Basilica too. Then check out the so-called ruin pubs, which make use of rundown spaces with vintage furniture and fairy lights.

A city for all seasons

Spring sees the Easter markets take over town, while summer’s events calendar hots up with big-name festivals such as Sziget. And you can treat yourself to an open-air soak in the sun at Széchenyi’s thermal baths. Winter’s all about hillside sledging followed by a warming steam at Gellert Baths and hot bowls of spicy goulash.

Festive fun

Budapest sparkles over Christmas, when hundreds of bustling stalls move in to celebrate the season. Vörösmarty Square sets up shop as one of the largest Christmas markets in Europe, complete with a giant advent calendar and carol singers. With flights to Budapest during the festive season, you can unlock all this magical destination has to offer.
