Budapest straddles the Danube with its two constituent parts on opposite banks, Buda and Pest. 

When I visited city for the first time I stayed in Buda, this time I chose the other side. Pest is the commercial heart of the city, best for amble along the streets and admire the architecture. To reach the other side, my favourite side, I had to cross one of the numerous bridges. Most beautiful is the magnificent Széchenyi Chain Bridge. If you have only a couple of days in Budapest, spend at least a morning visiting hilly Buda.

However you intend to fill out your time in Budapest, leave some time to wander at leisure beside the Danube too, because the views across the river are exceptional. Architecturally Budapest is a treasure trove, with everything from Roman ruins and medieval houses to baroque churches and neoclassical buildings. 

TIP: When you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, I suggest thermal baths. Budapest sits on a patchwork of thermal springs, which bath you decide to visit is really a matter of choice. I leave the bath for my next visit.
