The American website World Chacha, specialised in the compilation of travel top lists, has chosen Budapest as the second most beautiful city in the world, ahead of Rome, Florence or even Paris, reports novekedes.hu.
The praise that Budapest receives worldwide seems never to end. In November, the Gellért Bath was declared to be one of the most enchanting Art Deco baths in the world by BBC. Furthermore, Metro Line 4’s Szent Gellért Square station was chosen among the most beautiful metro stations in the world, and the Chain Bridge received high appraisal too. Meanwhile, the Buda Castle has made it to National Geographic’s top 10 castles in Europe. Just to name a few from 2017.
World Chacha recommends Budapest for its unique artistically tasteful architecture and for the matchless gastronomy scene. What should you visit in Budapest in the American site’s opinion? Well, the Four Seasons Gresham Palace and the Postal Savings Bank, apart from the most popular places like the Parliament or Andrássy street.
Thermal baths with healing powers and classy décor are also given a shout-out, along with the ruin bars, which cannot be left out from the context.
World Chacha mentions the view that the higher points of the city provide, making sure to draw attention to the fact that you can see almost to the end of Budapest, as the buildings are not allowed to be taller than 96 metres. The commentary ends with the most heart-warming sentence a tourist can come across:
“the best thing about this city is that most of its sights are accessed free of charge”
