Many travelers associate the Hungarian capital with thermal spas and bath culture, but things to do in Budapest also include a number of activities for those looking to add a bit of excitement to their itinerary. A walking food tour is a great way to satisfy your appetite for Hungarian culinary delights while discovering famous landmarks, such as Residence Parliament and St. Stephen's Basilica. Overlooking both riverbanks of the city, the fairytale-like towers of Fisherman's Bastion provide splendid photo opportunities. House of Terror offers a completely different view of the city, focusing on memorable events that took place under fascist and communist regimes.
