Travelling in Europe is a feeling like no other. It is the perfect marriage of an old World charm with the beliefs and ideas of modernity.

Europe is that continent which experienced the heavy revolution of Renaissance. Sculptures, poets, painters, writers, you name it and the best were produced from this very place.

 

 

An amalgamation of luxury, history and a lot of art, Europe houses some of the best cathedrals, vineyards, nightlife and celebrated fashion houses. With so much to offer, it is nearly impossible to cover each and every place in one trip or even two.

The culturally rich continent features a lot of monuments and jewels of the World. Budapest is that one destination which slowly but steadily has climbed up the ladder of becoming one of the most visited tourist spots.

 

 

 

The capital of Hungary, Budapest, is considered as the “Paris of the East”. It is also the home to various many UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

This beautiful city always existed but it only came into being back in 1872 when independent towns, Old Buda, Buda and Pest came together to become the beating heart of Hungary. You need at least 4-5 days to explore the whole of Budapest and by whole we mean, everything
