Travel to Budapest & Hungary
Discover Central Europe at Its Most Authentic
Hungary shares its borders with seven other countries, but has a personality and splendor all its own. Nowhere else in the world can you hear the Magyar language. Nowhere else will you find more than 1,000 mineral wells feeding hundreds of hot water spas. This is a country where 500-year-old Turkish monuments abut 2,000-year-old Roman ruins, where architectural styles run from medieval townhouses to Art Nouveau bathhouses. On an A&K journey to Budapest and Hungary you see the most intriguing and inspirational elements of this ancient country, one of the oldest in the world.
Because of its broad avenues and turn-of-the-century architecture Hungary's captivating capital, Budapest, is nicknamed the "Paris of Eastern Europe." The sparkling Danube slices through the city with eight imposing bridges connecting the hilly Buda with flat Pest. The huge, 200-room royal palace sits perched on a hill in Buda while Pest's cobblestone streets surround the Parliament building and lead visitors to the Hungarian National Museum, with one of the largest collections of Old Masters paintings in the world. Restaurants are world-class and music is all around you, from classical concerts featuring Liszt and Bartok to unique strains of gypsy music to jazz clubs springing up all over the city.
