Wintertime: When the smell of mulled wine is in the air, Christmas lights are everywhere and … people are freezing their hands off – including me. 😀 Yet I always love to travel somewhere in winter, especially to cities in Europe. I don’t know what it is but European cities have their own special charm during cold winter months. In my opinion, one of the best cities to visit is the Hungarian capital. Budapest in winter is a truly magical experience and that’s why I’ve been there already twice – every time during winter in Europe.

If you’ve been to Budapest already, then you probably know what I mean. Maybe you’ve also heard that the city is called the Paris of the East. In fact, this description has been applied to many other cities such as Bucharest or Warsaw. But for me, Budapest is the one and only true Paris of the East. The Hungarian capital has become one of my favourite European cities and I could go there again and again.
Unfortunately, I had only two days in Budapest this time but it was still enough to do almost all the things I had planned – except visiting the famous Szechenyi baths.
To convince you to visit this enchanting city in winter as well, I went to the best photography spots in Budapest and clicked tons of pictures there. I promise, they’ll make you want to book a trip there immediately!
TIP: Before you go to Budapest, don’t forget your travel insurance to cover non-refundable travel expenses. I use the simple and flexible one from World Nomads to be protected against unforeseen events.
