Some of Budapest’s historic buildings have been lost to war or Communism but Hungary's capital is still one of the most beautiful in Europe, with many distinct areas to explore; renovation has been widespread in the last decade. On one side of the Danube river lies hilly Buda and on the other, the plains of Pest. The city centre is on a scale that’s easy to walk around, or use the excellent tram network for speedy travel (you can buy tickets at most stops). Restaurant cuisine has markedly improved in the last 15 years, with better ingredients and more widespread influences in evidence. Bring a swimming costume and cap to enjoy the city’s thermal baths.
