Once two unique cities separated by the Danube, Budapest is one of Europe’s largest cities. Its history starts with Celtic roots that have since mixed Roman, Mongol, Magyar and Ottoman influence. The eclectic influx of culture over the years has made Budapest a unique city with even more unique festivals. Its largest and best known festival is Sziget–one of Europe’s largest music festivals that attracts tens of thousands of revelers from across the globe. Seasonal, art, music, cultural, religious, civic, food and performance festivals are abundant on the city’s calendar. The combination of being such a storied and aesthetic city make it a hotspot for events and festival tourism. Revelers can dance to contemporary music on 500 year old streets.
