If you didn’t know it, Hungary is actually one of the most visited countries in the entire world. They’re around fifteen on the list, in fact. One of the main reasons it’s such a favorite place to travel is that the money you spend there goes a long way – not to mention all the fun things they have to do.

Here’s a roundup of 22 different places to see and things to do while visiting Budapest Hungary. I’m not going to tell you how long it took me to see all these different places, but it’s a lot shorter amount of time than you might think.

How to Fit it All In

With so many places to see, it can be difficult to fit everything, but here are some tips I’ve learned over the years that should help you considerably.

  •  Plan Ahead – The first thing you need to do is to plan ahead. This means doing some research about various places you might want to visit. After you have a list, go through them and see if you can cluster any of them together. This makes it easier to see more in the same amount of time.
  • Use GPS – Another good idea is to make sure you use GPS rather than a paper map. This will allow you to really choose the best routes from location to location so that you can fit more in on your trip. Just make sure you keep a close eye on your GPS system when you’re traveling around.

  • Hang With Locals – Going with a local tour guide that has many years of experience will help make sure you’re able to get around the city and visit everything you want. The good news is that there are many great locals who are more than willing to help you get around without hassles or headaches. You’ll want to make sure you have a common language with them, of course.
