Holidaymakers are becoming more adventurous in their holiday choices these days. With such a vast choice of reasonably priced flights and hotels on offer we can afford to take a few more breaks during the year and to that end, we are always looking for new places to discover. Travel is an education in itself and the more places we visit and the more cultures we are exposed to, it really does give us a better, fresher perspective on the world; opening our eyes and minds to new sights, new sounds, different foods and different customs.
City breaks are booming right now and it seems we can’t get enough of them. We’re rapidly making our way through most of the European capitals and beyond. Some of our favourite budget airlines are adding new routes all the time and giving us the chance to travel to places we may not have considered before. A risk you’re likely to take if it isn’t going to cost you the earth.
There are some dazzling places to visit which are still largely unspoilt by mass tourism but their popularity is on the rise and it now might be a good time to see them before everyone else jumps on the bandwagon.
One of the cities that seems to be proving popular and a real ‘must see’ city is the Hungarian capital, Budapest… the Queen of the Danube as she has been called.
Budapest and its picturesque, fairytale backdrop sounds like just the place for a sophisticated weekend break. This captivating city brings a lot to the party – ancient cobbled streets, majestic architecture, impressive bridges and a vibrant cultural scene. Budapest city breaks have become the grown-up break of choice for discerning travellers who are looking for a bit more sophistication on their mini break adventure.
