Budapest: The hot new European city?
I’m not sure if anyone realized that the fall of communism would give rise to some of the hottest urban destinations in the world. These cities were long considered faceless and industrialized, but the post-Cold War thaw revealed great neighborhoods, innovative cuisine and avant-garde culture coupled with affordability. After placing Prague, Berlin and Moscow at the top of travel’s A List in years past, sophisticated travelers are going gaga for Budapest. Can Bucharest be far behind?

I travelled to Budapest Hungary in March 2012. It was outstanding - It was part of a tour package of Budapest Hungary & Prague Czech Republic (which was the destination I was interested in)... I don't know if I had any expectations to begin with but it far exceeded any expectations. Somewhat of a language barrier - not too terrible. I would definately recommend it!
