12 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Budapest!

It’s been almost 5 years since I traveled to Budapest.

Back in 2013 when my boyfriend (now husband) suggested it as one of the stops for a multi city Europe vacation I was planning I was like whattttt??? Budapest? Where is that and why do we want to go? Long story short, it’s in Hungary and that is where his family is from.

What I didn’t realize is that I would be exploring one of the most underrated cities with amazing medieval architecture, cool Turkish baths and several historic bridges. OH & they have a love for goulash and paprika… 2 things I am not a fan of to be honest but if that’s your thing – go for it.

Here are 12 photos that will make you want to visit Budapest:

  1. Hungarian Parliament Building – how stunning is this structure?

7. The Fisherman’s Bastion is one of my favorite spots in Budapest. You get the absolute BEST panoramic view across the Danube, Margaret Island and Pest!

9. What’s better than a pedicure? A Fish pedicure.

10. On one of our last nights in town, we stopped into Buddha-Bar randomly for a drink. They had a private event going on and we were invited to join in on the fun! The atomsphere in this place is amazing. Stop in for delicious food, yummy drinks and great music.

11. One of my favorite phrases is “Always make sure you look up” – the Budapest Opera House is the perfect example why.

    Awesome post, Budapest looks so beautiful! I also saw the poll you posted on Instagram today. I noticed too when I got the email about this post that it wasn’t your typical travel recap but I think these are awesome and would love to see more.

    Really nice photos. I’ve been to Budapest myself. I was really impressed. It was in my pre-blogging days, but I think I can still find some great shots I took there. Or maybe I should just jaunt away for a couple of days again.

    One of my friends lived in Budapest for almost a year and she kept saying it is underrated. The exact same word you used. I’m more and more curious about this place. Your photos are beautiful. This gelato rose is very cute too!

    Budapest is so high on our bucket list. What a gorgeous city! The white castle reminds my of something from a fairy tale not real life. And a fish pedicure. I’m going to have to give that a try.

    I’ve always wanted to visit Hungary and Budapest specifically. Not sure if I needed the photos but they highlighted the beauty of the place. I was so bummed when my in laws went in the summer without me.
