Budapest Ranked Among Best Cities in World by Time Out - Ahead of Montreal & Syndey
Budapest, the Hungarian capital, has bagged another honourable mention. Time Out, an internationally renowned travel magazine, has ranked the best cities in the world. Budapest was ranked 26th, even ahead of Dubai.

“What makes a city great?” – Time Out asks. “Some would say it’s all about buzzing neighbourhoods, affordable food and drink and a mighty selection of things to do, from art galleries and museums to live music and theatre,” the answer goes. “Others might highlight things like the happiness of its locals, access to green space and strong community vibes,” the travel magazine adds.

The magazine took this and many other factors into account when it asked city dwellers from around the world to tell them what it’s like to live, work and have fun in their hometown.

The magazine’s global rankings are the result of the opinions of locals and the input of tourism experts.

Budapest has also made it into the list, and in a very high position: the Hungarian capital is ranked 26th in the world. The city has overtaken places such as Beijing, Dubai, Montreal and Syndey.

New York came first, Cape Town second and Berlin was voted the third best city in the world. The full list is available HERE. What sets Budapest apart?

As Time Out magazine writes in its review, Europe’s most beautiful capital city lies on both sides of the Danube, connected by elegant bridges and excellent public transport.

They remind the reader that the Hungarian capital recently celebrated the 150th anniversary of its unification.

Time Out also highlights the number of cycle paths, safe recreational facilities and architectural treasures. Budapest’s spas are hailed as a unique attraction, while Michelin-starred restaurants are putting the city on the world map of gastronomy.

The House of Hungarian Music is also considered an unmissable attraction.
