A couple of weeks ago, I posted this on my Facebook fan page:
Notice that #5 is Budapest? There’s good reason. I’ve been to Budapest twice and each excursion there makes me fall in love with it more and more. As part of the former Ottoman and Austrian empires, Hungary’s historical value is mind blowing. I haven’t been to every Eastern European country, but thus far Hungary is close to the best for me. The food, the culture and the lively spirit of the locals charms me every time. I look forward to my next visit. Guest writer Olga Szoke explains why you have to add Budapest to your must-visit list.
Budapest is a magical city that provides over 800 years of rich history that can be explored in its Baroque churches, romantic castles and intriguing Turkish baths. Travelers to Budapest are sure to leave enriched after discovering a city that has developed a fascinating and eclectic blend of its ancient elements of Roman and feudal architecture with a bustling modern city.
