Destination: Beautiful and idyllic Budapest of Hungary
Budapest – the capital city of Hungary and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe – is also a much preferred tourist destination in Europe and an idyllic place to spend a few days for sightseeing, leisure and cultural learning, inform my kin who are touring the city these days.

The city is full of companies that offer sightseeing tours by buses, boats, water buses and walking tours in Budapest. Also, the daytime and night cruises on the Danube are available with meals and live music. The city's subway system of Metro and Tram Network are fast and efficient, if one wishes to tour around independently and leisurely.

For leisurely touring, one can visit art museum known for one of the largest collections of all periods of European art and comprising of over 1 lakh art pieces. Also, Hungarian National Museum, House of Terror, Franz Liszt Academy of Music, and Hungarian State Opera House are worth visting.

Furthermore, the central area of the city along the Danube River has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has very many remarkable monuments.

In the area, looking at architectural marvels such as the Hungarian Parliament building, Buda Castle, Fisherman's Bastion, Gresham Palace, Szechenyi Chain Bridge, Matthias Church and the Liberty Statue, make you wonder struck. The sights are grand both during the day and night times as well as attending on-going concert shows.

Tourists can be seen hanging around the landmarks like Andrassy Avenue, St Stephen's Basilica, Heroes' Square, the Great Market Hall, the Nyugati Railway Station building.

The city also has around 80 geothermal springs and thermal water cave system, wherein tourists gather for hot spring baths.

Author M John Harrison, in his book 'The Course of the Heart' writes, "Budapest is a prime site for dreams: the East's exuberant vision of the West, the West's uneasy hallucination of the East."
