Budapest’s massive Chain Bridge stretches languidly across the Danube between historic Buda and commercial Pest. Characterized by beautiful Neo-Gothic architecture and a buzzing vibe, it is a city worth exploring. Ride the funicular up towards the castle district, Varhegy. Roll your sleeves up and get your finger in the pie – literally – with our Exeter International Extraordinary Experience at Gundel where you learn to make a Hungarian Strudel from the master baker! Visit the ancient thermal baths which date back to Ottoman rule and don’t miss the exquisite jewels at the National Treasury.
If you’re in Budapest during the theater season, a performance at the Opera House is a must. In summers, an evening river cruise on the Danube is delightful as you see the city lit up after dusk on either bank. Budapest was home to a large Jewish community and there are several sites of Jewish interest, including three synagogues and a poignant Holocaust Memorial. Navigate the nooks and crannies of Budapest with Exeter International’s seasoned staff on the ground.
