BU­DAPEST

Wedding Bells (East) - - Destinations -

This cen­tral Euro­pean city is quite sim­ply a sym­phony for the senses; a place as charm­ing as it is mod­ern and ex­cit­ing. With its daz­zling ar­chi­tec­ture and bur­geon­ing food and fash­ion scenes, Bu­dapest is poised to be­come the next Paris—mi­nus the pre­ten­sion.

Nick­named the spa cap­i­tal of the world for the hun­dreds of ther­mal and min­eral springs that run be­neath the city feed­ing its nu­mer­ous bath houses, re­lax­ation is an in­te­gral part of daily life in Bu­dapest. For cen­turies lo­cals have been “tak­ing the wa­ters” to cure ev­ery­thing from hang­overs to arthri­tis.

Bu­dapest is also a place where derelict build­ings are be­ing trans­formed into trendy ruin bars—an­other of the city’s claims to fame (hence the afore­men­tioned hang­overs!).
