Hungary is bordered by Austria to the west, Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east and Croatia to the south. Due to its location, it’s a popular travel destination in its own right or in combination with any of its neighboring countries. The capital city of Budapest is divided into sides with the Danube River running through it. The left bank is the Buda side and is where many of the city’s popular attractions can be found; the Pest side is on the right of the Danube.
A holiday to Budapest includes historic sights such as St. Matthias Church, a neo-Gothic landmark church with an interior of stained glass windows and fantastic frescos that rivals the exterior in beauty, and Fisherman’s Bastion, offering fantastic views of the city. Trains bound for international destinations depart from Budapest’s Nyugati Train Station, which dates back to 1877. The Danube Express includes Budapest as a hub for many of its Budapest holidays including the extensive Istanbul to Prague itinerary and shorter trips like The Transylvanian.
