Budapest, Hungary — 18 nights

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pannonhalma Archabbey (in Pannonhalma) and Eger (Minorita Templom, Varos a Varos Alatt, &more). There's much more to do: ponder the world of politics at Hungarian Parliament Building, test the waters at Széchenyi Thermal Bath, admire the landmark architecture of Dohány Street Synagogue, and see the interesting displays at House of Terror Museum.

To see reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Budapest sightseeing planner.
