Why choose Hungary for your honeymoon?

Honeymoon is usually about romanticism and idyll. If you are tired of the sickly-sweet, too perfect honeymoon destinations known from the movies, consider Hungary , it makes for a classic and balanced romantic trip.

Budapest is smaller than most popular European capitals; this is part of the reason why it's lovelier.  Some say Budapest is just the right size for wandering. No skyscrapers, just castles, palaces, Roman and Turkish ruins and baths, Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings. A huge part of the city is listed as a World Heritage Site, see for yourselves why!

Take a boat cruise on the Danube, visit a restaurant with view of the city, visit art galleries and museums for thousand-year-old culture and art masterpieces, explore the excellent café culture, try Hungarian dessert specialities at the confectionaries, enjoy traditional drinks and cuisine, take photos at historic sites, heal your soul and body in the medical thermal baths and you will have a honeymoon everyone will envy.

All larger hotels have honeymoon suite and organized packages from low-budget excursions to luxury trips. Whichever you choose, you won't regret it, because there's so much to do, see and experience in Budapest and Hungary, that there's no bad or boring combination of programs. And the best part is that Budapest brings great value for money compared to Western Europe.

While honeymoon usually means a longer stay, there are a couple of day-trip ideas outside Budapest, worth considering. The royal palace of Gödöllő is 100% romantic; it was the summer residence of Queen Sisi and Franz Joseph, Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The Danube Bend is a breathtaking natural formation, with amazing views from several hilltops. For more day-trips, click here!
