Budapest

— 1 night

Pearl of the Danube

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Sat): make a trip to Fisherman's Bastion, contemplate the long history of Matthias Church, examine the collection at Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum, then snap pictures at Szechenyi Lanchid, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Hungarian Parliament Building. On the 11th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: head off the coast to Margaret Island, appreciate the history behind Heroes' Square, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), and finally test the waters at a local thermal spa.

In October, daytime highs in Budapest are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) so you can travel back home.

Breadbasket of Europe
Because tourism throughout the whole country is not as popular as in other European countries, much of the natural beauty of Hungary has not been developed or exploited. Visitors today are drawn to the unspoiled picturesque landscape, the capital metropolis surrounded by charming small towns and villages, and the plethora of thermal baths. The country's number of well-preserved archaeological ruins, castles, cathedrals, and medieval towns provide opportunities to those wanting a taste of European history. With the opportunity to explore both time-worn architecture and notable natural surroundings in every region, Hungary provides sightseeing opportunities with the amenities of traditional tourist destinations.
