Budapest

— 4 nights

Pearl of the Danube

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Budapest is known for historic sites, spas, and nightlife. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: admire the landmark architecture of Hungarian Parliament Building, contemplate the long history of Liberty Statue, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), and take in the views from Szechenyi Lanchid.

Cairo, Egypt to Budapest is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Budapest due to the time zone difference. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Cairo in July: high temperatures in Budapest hover around 33°C and lows are around 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to fly back home.

Breadbasket of Europe
Because tourism throughout the whole country is not as popular as in other European countries, much of the natural beauty of Hungary has not been developed or exploited. Visitors today are drawn to the unspoiled picturesque landscape, the capital metropolis surrounded by charming small towns and villages, and the plethora of thermal baths. The country's number of well-preserved archaeological ruins, castles, cathedrals, and medieval towns provide opportunities to those wanting a taste of European history. With the opportunity to explore both time-worn architecture and notable natural surroundings in every region, Hungary provides sightseeing opportunities with the amenities of traditional tourist destinations.
