Favorite thing: Budapest... Hungary's charming capital city: about 2 million inhabitants and 100 natural hot water sources. This aside, there are truly beautiful buildings and monuments to visit.

Fondest memory: The city is divided in two parts: Buda (the hilly and oldest part, and Pest, the flatter and more recent part. These two parts of the city were once separate towns and were merged together with Ancient Buda (Óbuda) only in 1873. Which one is best to visit? Both, of course! And in the middle... there's the blue Danube river...

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
