Vienna, Austria

Vienna is a romantic city that above all boasts a lot of MUSIC! Famous for Mozart and Beethoven, this city offers some of the best classical music in the world. We attended a fabulous concert at the Musikverein. Vienna was also the center of the Habsburg Dynasty. The palaces of Schönbrunn, Belvedere and Hofburg are therefore must-see attractions. The magnificent St Stephens Church in the historic center was one of the largest Gothic churches I have ever seen. Also, an interesting museum that we visited was Haus der Musik, which gave an innovative explanation about the science behind sound. Oh, and don’t forget to try schnitzel!

Budapest, Hungary

Spent four days in Budapest and thoroughly enjoyed it! Budapest offers history, great food and friendly people. For European standards, it is a inexpensive place to visit, especially for the food and museums. One restaurants tip that I can give is the Regős Restaurant near the famous Andrassy Street. The food and wine there is really worth the money! I would suggest to try the sweet Tokaji wine during your desert. The main stand-out attraction that we did were Gellert and Szechenyi baths, Gellert Hill, Andrassy Street, Buda Castle, Matthias Church, Metro Line 1, Margaret Island, Parlement Building, Great Market Hall and the many beautiful bridges that cross the Donau River. Would love to go back again!
