2. Budapest, Hungary
When looking up ‘top destinations’ within Europe, Budapest rarely tops the list. There’s a certain (and unfair) stigma surrounding most countries in Eastern Europe. Budapest is a beautiful city – possessing a wonderful mix of modern and traditional architecture. The food is fantastic (try goulash), and there isn’t a shortage of partying at night. The famed ruin parties definitely live up to the hype. Checking out the thermal baths is a cultural experience most certainly worth having. The best part: Budapest is one of the best bang-for-your-buck cities in all of Europe. It’s incredibly cheap when compared to places in Scandinavia.
