Budapest is the capital of Hungary. The country is not a part of the European Union, in fact it was tugged away behind the Iron Curtain - until quite recently.
Budapest is rich in beauty, history, culture, delicious food and on top of that; Budapest is one of the most inexpensive cities in Europe. So let your hair down and enjoy a little luxury!
Budapest Vacation Rentals
Illuminated City by Night
One of many great attractions in Budapest is the illuminated city by night. Casinos, restaurants, cafes and clubs are compeeing for your attention and your taste buds are most likely going to fall in love with Hungarian food.
The Jewish Budapest
Even though Budapest was damaged during the Second World War, the city still has a large Jewish community and a Jewish Quarter. Sightseeing the Jewish Budapest is a pleasure, you shouldn't miss. This is where you will find exiting art galleries and cutting edge design shops and naturally the Dohany Street Synagogue, the largest synagogue in Europe and the second largest in the world!
If you join a guided tour of the Jewish Quarter, you'll learn about its rich, but tragic history as one of many ghetto areas for Jews during the Holocaust. You will also see the Jewish Museum, the Jewish Cemetery and the Holocaust Memorial.

Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport
Airport Code: BUD
This is the international airport serving the Hungarian capital city of Budapest, and the largest of the country's five international airports.
The airport offers international connec- tions primarily within Europe, but also to Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
The currency in Hungary is called Forints and it is often an advantage to exchange your money in Budapest - instead of your home coutry. The exchange rate for Forints in Budapest is generally quite good, as long as you stay clear of the exchange booths at the airport and at the train stations.
The Central Europe Triangle Pass
The Central Europe Triangle Pass for non European residents is a great way to see the most popular cities in Central Europe and get one-way 2nd class rail travel between Vienna, Budapest and Prague, or Vienna, Prague and Salzburg. From 152 USD for adults.
