Itinerary & Notes
Szia! Welcome to Hungary. Budapest is Hungary's intoxicating capital, on the banks of the Danube River. In the evening after the welcome meeting perhaps head out with your new travel buddies and your leader for dinner, then take a night walk along the Danube River to see the surrounding buildings and bridges lit up in lights. Not to be missed are Budapest's funky 'ruin pubs'.
