Email: 15th wedding anniversary. Love travel, art & architecture. (Canada)
Hungary. One of Eastern Europe’s most beautiful countries. It all starts with Budapest, the town of two cities – Buda & Pest, on either side of the Danube. Home to some of the continent’s best architecture, from the Castle Quarter to the Royal Palace. The Neo-Gothic Parliament, 3rd largest in the world & the Buda Castle, started in 1200s. Gellért Hill offers best views of the city. World class spas are the perfect place to unwind. Central Europe’s largest lake, Lake Balaton, is the backdrop for beautiful, bright countryside. Eger’s charming streets & Cave Baths of Miskolctapolca are most exotic & energising. Budapest’s most scenic park, Margaret Island.
Whether we find ourself in a no-frill kocsma, an elegant cocktail lair or a quirky ruin pub, Budapest’s drinking scene has one constant. An inky, amber-tinted liquid called Unicum with roots that delve back to the 18th century. A most revered national drink, the fruit brandy Pálinka. The concert hall & music academy founded by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt is still Hungary’s most prestigious music school.
