The capital city of Hungary, Budapest is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities in Europe.  Budapest has a vibe of being calm and yet very busy at the same time.

The city is split into Buda & Pest by the lovely river of Danube, which is an attraction in itself.  Between the two sections of the city, there are a few islands scattered along the river, but the main one to visit is the Margaret island. This island has fantastic parks and is a popular recreational area for tourists and locals alike.

The Danubius Hotel has a branch on this island which also boasts a beautiful thermal spa. This island does not allow many vehicles and therefore is ideal to stay for families with kids.  It has a lovely musical fountain in the middle of the park, which comes on during months of summer.

The two halves of the city are joined by many bridges, but the best one to remember is the chain bridge as seen in the picture below.
