Europe's most genuinely unique city, Budapest offers a way into a national culture unlike any other. A long weekend, planned around Budapest football tickets, is just the beginning.
Even for a short break, the Hungarian capital has much to offer: wallow and relax in amazing open-air hot baths; cruise along the Danube; visit the city's museums to discover its imperial grandeur and its dark Communist past. Then enjoy ultra-traditional, richly satisfying cuisine, plus a range of wines that are the country's best-kept secret. Football matches in Budapest show another side of this fascinating city. The country's iconic club, Ferencvaros, regularly flies the flag for the country in European competition; Budapest's "Green Eagles" have a reputation for attracting both fiercely partisan support and deep local rivalries.
