Uncovering the best family holidays

Hungary

June - July 2014

After a very quick visit to Poland we headed to Hungary. It had been on our bucket lists for a long time and it didn't disappoint. 

We based ourselves in Budapest for 10 days, the capital and largest city in Hungary. Buda and Pest occupy both sides of the river Danube forming Budapest. 

Budpest is cited as being on of the most beautiful cities in Europe and we would have to agree. It has extensive World Heritage Sites, the second oldest metro line in the world, geothermal springs and not to mention the third largest Parliament House in the world. 

With over 4.3 million tourists a year, we can see why it's the 25th most popular city in the world.
