When planning a trip to Hungary, it is necessary to consider several factors when deciding where to stay in Budapest. One factor that is crucial is determining the number of nights you are planning to stay in Budapest. It is best to start estimating your traveling duration as early as possible to ensure that you have enough time for your activities once you get here. If you are planning to visit Budapest during one of its hottest summers, then staying at one of the trendy Budapest hotels during this time would be ideal.


September to October is also the most favorable time for you to visit Budapest because the weather is nice, the beaches are beautiful and the majority of the visitors are away from their summer houses by then. The weather is quite nice throughout the year but during the months of September to October, it gets hotter. The best months to visit Budapest would be May, June and September to October as the weather remains pleasant throughout the year. Budapest’s eastern side is mostly sunny while its western side experiences dry and windy summers.


Budapest has various tourist attractions which are attractive to both foreign nationals and tourists from within the European continent. Some of these places include the Danube River, palaces and cathedrals, palaces, monuments, museums, galleries, and even the world famous palaces of Hungary, which are situated on the Danube River. If you want to experience a rich history while visiting Budapest, then you should visit the City of Pest (Tegel) – a historic area situated between the Danube River and the foothills of the Alps. The City of Pest is home to palaces, monuments, and museums which tell about the rich history of Budapest. You can find some interesting things to see in the City of Pest. Furthermore, if you are interested in ancient architecture and the history of palaces, then you should visit Miskata, Hancarlsburg, or Gurcazmin, all of which are located within close proximity to the City of Pest.


Another popular tourist destination would be the Danube Delta, which is a World Heritage Site. The most impressive part of the Danube Delta lies below the Danube River where an island called the Isles ofanka lies. Here you can visit the Kranjska Island which was destroyed in the 7th century. However, don’t be limited by this fact. This region still has something for you to discover.


Apart from the Danube region, there are many other tourist destinations that you can visit while visiting Budapest. These places include the capital of Hungary, Budapest, which is also the largest city in the country. If you prefer history and art, then you should visit the Castle Church.
