9 days, starting and ending in Budapest

by benfire

Hello all. I have flights in and out of Budapest on Dec 31 and Jan 9. I'll definitely be spending the first few nights there, and the last night before my flight, but in the middle I'm looking to go on to a few different cities -- preferrably South, due to the weather. I am also planning on taking a different trip to Croatia, so you can knock that off the list. I was thinking of going to Cluj and Brasov in Romania, but I am open to ideas.
Thanks!

Just a small trick...
Hungarian rail company (MAV) has really interesting price politics concerning neighboring countries - in most case you'll get up to 60-70% discount if you buy international return tickets. So make sure you always buy r/t ticket (as an example - Budapest-Brasov r/t 66 euro, one way is almost the same price)
In addition such kind of situation can be used for travels inside Hungary - for instance, basic domestic ticket to Pecs (really nice town in Southern Hungary) costs 3230HUF(*2=6460HUF (25 euro) for return), but Budapest-Beli Monastir(Croatian town just next to Pecs)-Budapest via Pecs costs only app. 20 euro due to Hungary-Croatia discount. Similar things happen with Slovenia, Serbia, Slovakia and "partly" with Romania and Ukraine...
So my advice - take an advantage of it...

You can visit Vienna as an option. Pecs is nice as stated previously. Neighbour towns to Budapest such as Visegrad, Esztergom, Szentendre could be visited. Gyor is a lovely place too.

Weather wouldn't be much different a bit to the south either - you should at least cross the Mediterranean to escape from winter weather conditions. So don't care much about weather, I suggest. (Actually, Cluj and the whole of Transylvania is wonderful during the winter.)

Ben, don't like Dani said, it would not be much warmer, or nay warmer in Cluj or Brasov. I don't know if you are aware, but Brasov sits in what they call the Romanian Alps, that should clue you in. Just enjoy the sights and the cold, plenty to see and do there, perhaps a side trip to Vienna. Bundle Up !!

oops what is happening to my spelling... that is "just like Dani said" and not nay but any

Travel Tips for Budapest

Vajdahunyad Castle

by azz8206

Vajdahunyad Castle is located behind Hosok Ter. in the City Park. It was built between 1896 and 1908 and is a replica of a castle in Transylvania, Romania. It borrows from different architectural styles such as Romanic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. You will find the Agricultural Museum inside.
Right across from the castle is the Church of the 12 Disciples. Statues of the 12 disciples form an arch around the facade of the church with Christ at the top.
There is also the giant Statue of Anonymus in the courtyard. He was a 12th century chronicler. He wrote the first history books on the ancient Hungarians which were mostly based on legends. It was said that by touching his pen you will receive good luck.

Here it is..

by cobrioc

Famous Fishermen Bastion.
The latter was built as a viewing platform in
1905, and named after guild of fishermen responsible for defending this stretch of wall in the Middle Ages.
It has commanding view over the city, and is dominated by seven gleaming turrets representing the seven Magyar tribes who entered the Carpathian Basin in the 9th century, and a statue of St Stephen on horseback. Immediately south of the Old Town is the Royal Palace. Razed, rebuilt and redesigned over the past seven centuries, the palace houses a number of museums, including the National Gallery, which has an enormus collection devoted exclusively to
Hungarian art.

Monuments (2)

by diocletianvs

Well, this is the funny area regarding monuments. The new Budapest National Theatre (Nemzeti Szinhaz) is situated on the right bank of Danube, close to the Petofi Bridge.

The building itself is a post-modern experiment, and around it you'll find ziggurats, labyrinths and an aboundance of silly sculptures: paraschuters jumping from the sky, people waiting for someone on the benches etc.

Right at the main entrance path you'll find this guy apparently leaving the area with heavy suitcases.

I wonder where is he going? And whom does he represent?

Uri Utca on Castle Hill

by nicolaitan

Parallel and one block west of Trinity Square and the heavily touristed streets like Tarnok lies the longest and oldest street on Castle Hill, basically devoid of stores restaurants and gaping tourist hordes. Quiet and peaceful, it is lined by ancient buildings and palaces dating back to the 14th and 15th Century. Many are being gutted and modernized within especially in the enclosed courtyards, but the protected facades are unchanged. The adjacent images attempt to capture the quaint and old appearance of Uri Utca.

The Danube Bend

by Sjalen

The Danube Bend seems "off the beaten path" (at least most people I have met seems to have missed it) despite its fame. Climb the castle ruins in Visegrad where the river bends for a great view of the country.
