Things to do in Budapest

Budapest is the capital city of Hungary.  I have always wanted to visit Budapest and recently I got a chance to visit this city.  The city has really beautiful architectures, buildings, and scenery.  Many travel guides have named this city as one of ‘world’s best city’ and ‘places to live in Europe’.  It’s no wonder why many travelers visit this city.  Here are some recommendations of things to do when in Budapest.

    I did a wine tasting in the basement of one of the hotels, which I believe was a former monastery. It was really fun and a great opportunity to try some Hungarian wines (and they for sure didn’t skimp on the samples!).
