33 Reasons To Get Yourself to Budapest (Photos)

Budapest is fastly becoming one of the top European destinations to visit, and I can see why. I spent 10 months living in this beautiful city and what I can tell you is that you need to see it. It has the style of Paris and the atmosphere of Berlin’s nightlife but without the pretentiousness.

I feel it has become the epicentre of young tourism, accommodating the budget travelling, wanderlust-filled backpackers of the world. It may have become a stag and hen party hotspot, but Budapest ain’t just good for cheap booze, there are so many more reasons to go, 33 reasons actually…
