Budapest was a very beautiful place for me. I literally fell in love with the city. It was very safe. transportation is easy. Even while walking on the streets, I felt like I was in a completely different place. It's also a cheap place so you can try Budapest dishes. Also if you have advice to stay as a hostel , i recommend you Flow Space hostel. You will never regret to go there because this hotel is literally for travallers. There is hostel events such a free food , movie room.i went there in march maybe it’s also be the reason why it’s cheap but if you are looking for hostel i sincerely can recommend for you

Solo travel experience

I liked Budapest very much, it is a very safe place. Yes, there are always you there, but they don't do much harm. Even if you are a girl, you can go out and have fun until late at night. The thermal baths here are very famous and very beautiful. There are a lot of extremely beautiful night entertainment venues. The food is cheap, but in terms of clothes. very expensive a little expensive

Hungary is my home country. I love it really historical,good food,wine,music and thermal pools🥰. I really recommend to visit in winter Christmas time or in summer our famous lake Balaton. I also recommend to use more the puclic transport during the hours when more people on it just in case. I never had any problems but you can never be enough careful😉.
