The capital city of Hungary, Budapest is a fairytale city in Eastern Europe. The city itself is separated by the 19th-century Chain Bridge that connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest – hence the name Budapest!
Its old world charm makes Budapest a dream city for Instagrammers. We’ve rounded up the 7 best places to get the ultimate Budapest Instagram photo…
1. Széchenyi Thermal Baths
The Széchenyi Medicinal Bath in Budapest is the largest medicinal bath in Europe, with more than 18 pools to relax in. By day the pools are a fun place to go with friends and by night are beautifully lit up and romantic.
2. Fisherman’s Bastion
This beautiful terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style is on the Buda bank of the Danube. It’s also a classic location for a Budapest Instagram shot. Get there early (around 8am) if you want to be the only one in the frame.
3. New York Café
The most beautiful cafe in Budapest (and maybe even Europe?), New York Cafe has lived through many historical moments since the 20th century. Its super fancy decorations and photogenic food make it a must-see.
4. Aria Hotel
A luxury hotel in the city, head straight to the rooftop bar for panoramic views of the city to include in your Budapest Instagram snaps. Views of St Stephen’s Basilica go perfectly with a glass of vino.
5. Széchenyi Chain Bridge
One of the best known landmarks of the city, this historic stone bridge is a perfect spot to get some photos to post on your Budapest Instagram collection. Crossing the bridge is just a short walk and no matter which direction you go, the view is beautiful.
6. Vintage Garden
A French-bistro style restaurant that is ideal for date night. Vintage Garden can get pretty busy at times, but with those Instagrammable pink flowers all over the place, who minds?
