Flight Distance and Flying Time to Budapest

Budapest

“Queen of the Danube” or Budapest is a superlative city that radiates plenty of cultural charm and grandeur to entice visitors to see everything it has to present. Budapest outlines the Danube River with its regal bridges, historical buildings and tree-lined roadways and because of its graceful exquisiteness and the romantic ambiance produced, it is this city that has gotten high status amid the Eastern European nations.

Any visitor is given proverbial European culture with a hint of the Hungarian traditions mixed in. In fact, it can be seen in many buildings such as the neo-Gothic Parliament structures. It can be seen in sidewalk cafes, Hungarian folk compositions and classical concerts. The cobbled roads found in the medieval neighborhoods also enlighten visitors to this mixture. Anywhere visitors will look, they’ll notice the unfamiliar sounds of two different cultures. For most visitors, the highlights of the Budapest tour is cruising down the Danube River and using the thermal bath in a Turkish-era bathhouse.

There was a time that Budapest was just two different cities, Buda and Pest; each city separated by the Danube River. Each town had its own unique style and even after it conjoined, they still had their alluring, distinct culture.

For instance, Buda comprises of tiny picturesque colored homes and has a blend of medieval, neo-Classical architecture sitting amid the west bank hills. It’s well known for the historic Castle Hill that features not only many museums and galleries but the Royal Palace and St. Matthias Church.

Pest, on the other hand, is the commercial core. It’s busy with chic shopping stores and its characteristically wide roadways. In fact, Andrássy Boulevard is lined up with distinctive mosaic of architectural styles. This boulevard is often referred as the city’s Champs-Elysées.
