Szia (Hello)! We are heading this time to Budapest to find out the city's memorable sights and what are the most common treatments people travel to Hungary for.
Divided by Europe’s second longest river, the Danube, Budapest has more than 1.8 million inhabitants and is Hungary’s capital and largest city. Home to the second largest synagogue in the world, the Dohàny Street Synagogue, Budapest is a popular destination for anyone wanting to enjoy city sightseeing and excursions with a touch of relax.
One city, two souls. The Danube river splits the city into the two main areas - Buda and Pest - each one distinctively characterized by their own flair and personality. Hilly Buda offers breathtaking panoramas and is known as the residential and wealth part of the city, while Pest is the commercial hub where many cafès, bars and restaurants populate its busy streets. The two cities were combined into one in 1873 to become the dual capital of the Austro-Hungarian empire.
Along mighty Danube. Taking a boat ride is probably one of the best ways to discover Budapest by day - and also at night, when the city lights are pure magic. You can also walk along both sides of the river or admire the city panorama from one of the many bridges that link Buda and Pest, like Margaret Bridge, Elizabeth Bridge and Liberty Bridge. If you head southwest, you cannot miss Memento Park, a must-see open-air museum where monumental statues and busts evoke Hungary’s Communist period.
Thermal retreat. Budapest is one of Europe’s top destinations when it comes to thermal baths; with more than 120 thermal springs, you have plenty of choices to get your well-deserved relaxing retreat in the Hungarian capital. Besides being the largest in Europe, Széchenyi is without a doubt also one of the most popular thermal baths in Hungary.
There is no particular vaccination to recommend when traveling to Hungary, besides the boosters and vaccinations every traveller should keep updated according to his/her own medical needs; refer also to routine vaccination courses and boosters as advised by your health provider and country.

Budapest’s public transport system includes streetcars, trolley buses (available in Pest only), 3 subway lines and an efficient suburban railway system (HÉV trains); from May to September you can also enjoy the view of the city from the Danube by taking a riverboat.
