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?
