2 Days in Budapest

Western Europe is a lot more popular for tourist than Eastern Europe is. France, Spain and Italy dominate the tourism industry in Europe. While these countries are simply amazing with lots to see and do, Eastern European countries like Hungary and the Czech Republic are true gems. Among these places in Eastern Europe, Budapest, the capital of Hungary in my opinion is very underrated and has so much to offer. Budapest is made of two cities, Buda and Pest separated by the mighty Danube river. This post covers how to spend 2 days in Budapest and experience some of the highlights this wonderful city has to offer.

One Day in Granada, Spain

One Day in Granada

In my previous post on Sevilla, I called the southern region of Andalucía, Spain’s beating heart. Another great example of this statement is the historic city of Granada. This thriving city, sitting at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, was once the grandest city in Spain. Conquered by the Moors in 711 and reconquered by Christians in the 15th century, the remnants of Granada’s Moorish past can easily be experienced even today, at the Alhambra. This city has so much to do and see that one day in Granada may not be enough. However, if don’t have the luxury of spending more than one day in Granada, then this itinerary covers all the major sites and highlights the city has to offer along with lots of tips to make the most out of your trip.

In my opinion, Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia is an underrated city. This charming city with its colorful old town and hill top castle is conveniently located close to the borders of 3 central European countries, Given its close proximity to these countries, especially to Austria and Hungary, Bratislava makes a super easy and much quieter side trip from either of these places. I visited Bratislava from Vienna which was just an hour’s bus ride away and stayed overnight to really see and enjoy all the wonderful things Bratislava has to offer. This post covers how to spend one full day in Bratislava.
