In Hungary, we visited the capital city of Budapest – which both differed from and exceeded our expectations. As part of the former Communist bloc, we were ready for a city strapped in brutalist architecture and void of Western commercialism, but we quickly learned otherwise. The city is ornately designed and historically preserved. We spent two weeks in Budapest sightseeing the city’s top attractions, visiting the intercity parks, partying in the ruins pubs, learning the history and even attending the opera.
