Looking for a unique winter getaway? Here are five reasons to visit Budapest this winter, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities:

1- Ice-skating

In operation since 1876, the City Park Ice Rink at Budapest City Park is the largest outdoor ice skating rink in Europe. It’s especially spectacular at night with lights, music and views of the city’s Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

2- Christmas markets

At the Budapest Christmas Market, more than 100 stands in Vörösmarty Square and St. Stephen Square display handmade crafts. Children will delight in the puppet shows and other activities organized just for them.

3- Classical concerts

At St. Stephen Basilica, guests can enjoy wonderful concerts Vivaldi, Bach, and Händel. Although held throughout the year, insiders say the most memorable concerts ones take place during the winter season.

4- Thermal baths

Even during winter, you can take a relaxing dip in one of the city’s famous thermal baths, known for their healing properties as well as their beautiful architecture.
