Top 3 Reasons to Add Budapest, Hungary to Your Travel Itinerary

A Scripted Freelance Writer Writing Sample

Once you first experience Eastern Europe, you'll wonder why the west has received all the attention. We all dream of strolling past the Eiffel Tower, taking a black cab over Tower Bridge in London or navigating Venice by Gondola, but here are three reasons to put Budapest, Hungary near the top of your travel itinerary.

Gellért Hill

Like all cities, Budapest is best seen from above. Traveling through the bustling city and onto Gellért Hill will give you the breath of fresh air you need. This small hike (or taxi ride) covers everything you love about travel. History, architecture, nature, culture and the perfect photo opportunity are all rolled into one.

Chain Bridge

The Chain Bridge, otherwise known as the Széchenyi Lánchíd, is another great way to see the city. Think Tower Bridge, only picturesque views of the Danube River, not the River Thames. There almost always seems to be street vendors, musicians and locals simply enjoying the commute through their city.

Thermal Baths

No trip to Budapest would be complete without a trip to a thermal bath. Visitors from around the world have been going to Budapest for centuries to enjoy a relaxing plunge in these steamy waters. There's dozens of baths in Budapest, and you really can't go wrong here. Try one out near you, or make an entire trip out of hopping from thermal bath to thermal bath.

Visit Budapest

These three iconic elements are just part of what make Budapest such an iconic travel destination in Eastern Europe. Even if you just explore these three sites, you're bound to have an unforgettable trip. Once you add the tantalizing local cuisine, friendly locals and buzzing nightlife, it may become your new favorite destination.
