First Time in Budapest
Budapest is divided into three areas – the Castle district, Buda, and Pest, each of which offer plenty to see and do. The Castle district is a fascinating area, with a large collection of museums and magnificent views of the Danube. Buda and Pest, once individual cities, have since combined to form a city straddling the river, and are connected by a series of bridges, though Pest has the monopoly on exciting nightlife.
For art lovers, tickets to Budapest make it possible to see some unique galleries like the Kassák Museum in Buda, which honors the life of Lajos Kassák, or the MissionArt Gallery, showcasing some of Hungary’s best modern art. For a relaxing experience, try one of the city's famous thermal baths.
