The capital of the small European country, Hungary gets sometimes overlooked by tourists. While other capital cities such as Vienna and Prague in the surrounding countries are well visited, Budapest is not always on the top of the list. Travelers who do include a visit even if for a short weekend trip only, will leave with the feeling that they would return soon and spend more time exploring this fascinating city.
