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.Get in touch with nature at Margaret Island and Szemlo-Hegyi Barlang (Showcave). Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Buda Castle and Wine Tours & Tastings. Change things up with these side-trips from Budapest: Tagore Promenade (in Balatonfured) and Priest's Island (Pap-sziget) (in Szentendre). The adventure continues: make a trip to Fisherman's Bastion, steep yourself in history at Heroes' Square, admire the landmark architecture of Matthias Church, and examine the collection at House of Terror Museum.
