Hungary A City Break

Weekend city breaks are important for people who just want to get away from their normal live for a long weekend. It is very nice to then just visit a city, stay in a luxury hotel, do some shopping, and just come down from a busy week. It is nice to visit some important places in the history of a city and learn something about their culture. That is what we are going to plan: a nice weekend!
The breaks will be planned in the capital of hungary, Budapest, and we will look where you can sleep, eat breakfast lunch and dinner, which important places you can visit, and what sort of nice things you can do.
