Very possibly my favourite Eastern European city. Lovely architecture, great people, violent but moving history. Be sure to spend a few days exploring both sides of the river.Recommended for:

Budapest is a beautiful city full of rich history and amazing architecture. It's got some really interesting buildings and loads to see around the city. The local food is hearty and filling and you can't go wrong with the Polinka and nightlife either.Recommended for:

While Prague got more popular faster, Budapest is a real pleasure to visit. Divided into 2 sections (Buda and Pest) by the River Danube, the architecture is gorgeous, the nightlife fun, and the food very good as long as you like goulash. Seriously, though, this is a cosmopolitan city, easy to navigate, and worth a visit. Last time I went there was also, sadly, a Starbucks.Recommended for:

I took the train from the most beautiful city in the world (Praha) to one of ten best cities of the world that I have ever visited, Budapest. The city is friendly, bustling, and the people appeared to be friendly.

Incredible city! Whether you are like architecture, history, night-life, food, or stunning scenery, Budapest is guaranteed to have anything to suite your fancy. This city doesn't come across as touristy as other major European cities either, offering a more local feel to your experience.Recommended for:

I loved Budapest! It is one of the biggest citys in Europe, kind of reminds me of New York. There is so much to do... I was lucky enough to see Heros square, the Danube river, and the liberty statue to name a few. My favorite spot in Eastern Europe. The night life is also fantastic and the food is very delicious (if you like meat).Recommended for:

Budapest is gorgeous, in that ornate and gray way. It is positively opaque in its language and signage, which I think contributed to me not enjoying myself so much here. In contrast with countries to the south, it is markedly more like northern Europe, in that people are reserved and a bit aloof--or at least they were in the limited time I was there. I would like to go back, just to give it another chance...Recommended for:

Budapest is an amazing city to experience. It's definitely the most different from the more western European cities I've seen - especially in terms of its architecture and overall feel of the people and culture. I loved exploring and learning about the city's rich history. The food was great, too!Recommended for:

Amazing city! There is so much to do and see, you'll be sure to keep busy. It's got the Eastern European vibes with incredible charm. The ruin bars are incredibly fun, like nothing I've ever been to before. The baths are a must-do experience, and there are so many incredible UNESCO sites along the Danbue. One of my favorite European cities!Recommended for:

First visit to the city and it seemed to be a mix of both old world charm and graffiti-draped rebellion splashed across abandoned and ugly mass-produced buildings. Great mass transit, wonderful Christmas Market, very friendly people. Prices varied greatly depending on whether you were in the center of the town or away in the working class neighborhoods. Beautiful city, especially the Buda castle and surrounding pedestrian areas.

Budapest is often compared to its Danube neighbors, Bratislava and Vienna. Budapest has more to do than Bratislava and is more laid back than Vienna. From thermal baths to communist statue parks to massive rock festivals, there's never any shortage of things to do. The city is also an architectural gem with many Habsburg era castles, medieval churches and gorgeous 19th century homes.Recommended for:

Someone once told me that Hungary is known for being the only country that was once surrounded by itself. True, they've lost a lot of wars, but what remains is a beautiful country with an even more splendid capital. Budapest seems to embrace its growing popularity by saying, "We're here, like us or not, but we're not going to change." It still remains very Eastern European, and its occasional gritty areas are one of the things I love most about it. The views are phenomenal, but some of BP's more unique wonders are hidden underground, with elaborate, colorful graffiti decorating the metro and tram tunnels. I lived here for three years, and the only drawback I can really think of is the food - then again, I'm not a huge fan of goulash or palascinta. And they put sour cream on everything.

Budapest is a beautiful and relaxing city to visit, and is perfect for a long weekend if you want to get out of the rat race in London. It's a big city, but small enough to walk around from Danube River to the City Park. Budapest is renowned for its natural spring water baths, and my favourite to visit was Szechenyi Baths as there were many options in terms of indoor and outdoor pools, plus it was co-ed - so both males and females could take a dip together (many traditional baths are segregated and couples tend to get caught out). The nightlife happens in the Jewish Quarter in the centre of the city, at the many ruin pubs and bars along Kazinczy utca St with Szimpla Kert and Instant! clubs being the main attractions. Walk up to the Castle and the Citadella for the best views and to Margret Island and take a unique ride through the park on one of the many bikes, three wheel carts and even Penny-farthing for hire!
