Budapest, Hungary Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

Budapest is definitely one of the hot cities among cultural tourists these days, and for good reason. It’s unique and historic while remaining quite cheap by most standards. Unlike Prague, this city hasn’t yet been able to adjust its prices to meet (and frustrate) the new interest.
