I have just come back from my third visit to Budapest. It won't be my last one either, already looking forward for my next trip!

The view from Szabadság Ter to the Parliament on a warm summer's evening

The Sziget Festival

One good reason to come to Budapest is the Sziget Festival which takes place on an island in the river Danube each August.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful City, great views, wide boulevards, great VTers living there
  • Cons:Not yet very wheelchair friendly
  • In a nutshell:European Highlight -- Don't Miss!

    Guten Tag Win, I will be visiting Budapest for 2 days in November. I've done a little researching about it -- but it is still largely unknown to me. Glad to read your helpful tips and view your fantastic photos! Prost, Bill

    Beautiful photos - you capture the winter light so well. Loved the somewhat unusual "warnings" tip too :)
