The Hungaroring is just outside Budapest but well connected by transport, it is actually closest to the town of Mogyorod though. Attractions in Mogyorod include the old Main Square, Wineries and the Aqua Park right by the circuit.

 

Budapest is known as the Paris of Central Europe though many people prefer it to Paris, it is a little touristy but retains a lot of charm and is truly beautiful, not what you might expect from a former Soviet city rebuilt after the second world war.

The Parliament building in Budapest on the Danube is just an example of the beautiful architecture that can be found in the centre of Budapest, many of these old buildings have been repaired and rebuilt following damage during the Second World War, in Western Europe they would quite possibly have been demolished: the people of Budapest are proud of their history however and welcoming to tourists. The Historical Museum of Budapest in Buda is one of the best museums in Eastern or Central Europe; there is also the National Museum over the river in the Pest part of the city that explores Hungary’s fascinating history that may be mostly unknown to many Western visitors.
