Budapest has been named the 7th best place for culture in the world
Tripadvisor announced its Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Destination Awards for 2023. A new category was introduced this year: The Best Places for Culture. The list ranks destinations that boast outstanding 'art, history, music, and cuisine, plus iconic sights and experiences you can’t find anywhere else', based on reviews from the global travel community. Fes in Morocco tops the list, and Budapest snatched the 7th place. Landmarks, such as St Stephen's Basilica, Aquincum, Heroes' Square, Gellért Baths, Széchenyi Baths and Rudas Baths are highlighted.
'Over 15 million gallons of water bubble daily into Budapest's 118 springs and boreholes. The city of spas offers an astounding array of baths, from the sparkling Gellert Baths to the vast 1913 neo-baroque Szechenyi Spa to Rudas Spa, a dramatic 16th-century Turkish pool with original Ottoman architecture. The "Queen of the Danube" is also steeped in history, culture and natural beauty. Get your camera ready for the Roman ruins of the Aquincum Museum, Heroes' Square and Statue Park, and the 300-foot dome of St. Stephen's Basilica' - the article says.
