Budapest it’s beautiful, a historic town and it is cheap.
Hostels in Budapest start at $10 USD per night, and personal rooms were twice that. Meals in the markets or at the plethora of kebab and sandwich shops are around $3-5 USD. Trains and buses were only a few bucks. Unless you’re heading to get a big night of drinking or paying for plenty of activities and attractions, $30 USD will give you plenty of room to enjoy the sites and sounds of Budapest.
Budapest is a terrific alternative to popular destinations such as Prague or even Vienna.
