Looking to enjoy a romantic honeymoon in Budapest? If you are stuck with regards of what to do in this amazing city, the suggestions below will help you get unstuck…
Leisurely explore the best of Budapest’s historical and cultural heritage
For a city that has flown under the radar for a long time, Budapest has a bevy of architectural and cultural gems that remain comparatively uncluttered compared to their contemporaries further west in Europe.
From Buda Castle, a massive opulent complex that used to be the home base for Hungarian royalty, to the Fisherman’s Bastion, which grants an epic view of the former and the splendid looking Parliament Buildings, there is much to see. Go at your own pace, and savor what you do get to visit.
Take a boat cruise on the Danube
While the view from the Fisherman’s Bastion should be enjoyed by all who visit Budapest, many also speak highly of vantage points that can be accessed via a boat cruise on the Danube.
With dinner, drinks, and the spectacle of seeing Budapest lit up after dark, it will turn out to be one of the better value activities that you will engage in during your time here.
Enjoy the best of Budapest’s fine dining scene
If you opt not to have dinner on a boat tour, there are plenty of other excellent options throughout the city. Some offer the best possible interpretation on Hungarian cuisine, while others delve in Italian, French and other world culinary disciplines, but all will give you a dining experience that will earn a place in your personal top ten meals of all time.
If you are looking for suggestions, Costes was the first restaurant in Hungary and only the second in all of Central Europe to earn a Michelin star, while Oynx, which focuses heavily on traditional Hungarian dishes, has also earned that honor. Either is an excellent choice, so go ahead and book your table, and prepare for the meal of a lifetime!
Soak your cares away at the Szechenyi Spa
Finally, you can’t visit Budapest and not spend at least one evening at one of the many baths that can be found all over the city. Drawing on a geothermically heated portion of the water table, these attractions has drawn scores of local adherents over the years, and plenty of tourists as well.
The best of these baths is the Szechenyi Spa, whose architectural styling, massive outdoor and indoor baths, and water chess tables will win you and your partner shortly after entering its inviting waters.
