Budapest is my favorite European city to visit (thus far). I’ve been there twice and loved it twice. The Danube runs through the middle of it, dividing it into its two old cities, Buda and Pest, connected by the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. On one side is the exquisite, unmistakable Parliament Building, and on the other side is the striking white Fisherman’s Bastion. And around every corner is something of beauty, some building, some statue, some park.
