The Danube river runs through Hungary’s capital, splitting it into the two districts that give the city its name: Buda and Pest. The separate sides differ in personality and allure. Buda breathes historic grandeur from leafy, palace-topped hills, while Pest buzzes with boho ruin bars and gourmet go-tos. Cross ornate bridges to take in the two, stopping in Turkish-era thermal baths along the way.
