Days 13-16 Budapest

Arrive in Budapest, the eclectic capital of Hungary. Budapest is a city of two halves - literally. Buda, on the west bank, features rolling hills while Pest, on the east bank, has a grid-like layout. Linking the two is the Chain Bridge, which spans the sparkling River Danube.

Then, why not end the adventure at one of the thermal baths scattered around the city, complete with whirlpools, submerged seats and chessboards.
