Why You Should Go to Budapest Explained in 10 Photos

When I lived in the Czech Republic I went to Budapest for a long holiday weekend, and ever since then the city’s been calling my name, “Please come back, Ruth!” Here’s why I want to go back and why you should go too explained in 10 photos.

1. Mobile Saunas

Yes, it’s a thing.

2. Parliament in the Rain

Winter rain has never looked more beautiful.

3. Crazy cool architecture

How are people not stopping to take photos?

4. Ice-skating next to castles

It’s the epitome of a winter wonderland.

5. Ruin bars

They’re not just hype. A beer in a condemned building is a strangely brilliant concept.

6. Spectacular views

St. Stephen’s Basilica offers a stunning place to watch the sun go down.

7. Gulash

What better place to wait for hearty Hungarian gulash than in a homey environment.

8. Even more spectacular views

And a statue doing lunges on Gellert Hill.

9. Kitties

Do you see the one peering out from the window?

10. This guy

Best… statue… ever.

Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to, and lately I’ve been craving Eastern European food eaten against a backdrop of stunning architecture and cold winter weather. What city has been calling your name lately?
