Hungary for a citybreak?
Budapest is B’est!

Chain Bridge in Budapest

Budapest is B’est! This is the theme or slogan of this site, which is not just a playing around of words based on the analogy of Amsterdam – A’dam, but it actually holds true for many-many things you can see, do or experience in Budapest. This site aims to introduce you to these unique & b’est experiences, and more than anything inspire you to come and see us.

The Hungarian capital is still a well-kept secret for many, which has not yet fully capitalised on its virtues – unlike Prague which has experienced a torrent of tourist flows after the collapse of communism. Budapest however ‘just’ keeps on growing in a decent manner year by year without any of the dramatic effects. There are so much more on offer here than you would expect – this is what our visitors keep saying.

So let’s take a leap and explore together, in what ways Budapest is the B’est? Just come ’n follow us through the navigation bars and links, and if you had a question or two, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will respond to you soon. Give it a try:)

So in what ways do we think Budapest is the B’est? Some thoughts…
