Our trip to Budapest was very important on two fronts. First I needed to go back, as this was the entire motivation for the trip. Second, we needed to recover from the wretched night trains. We spent five days here. The first 3 were pleasant, but the last couple reached 100 F and slowed our touristic progress. Easily the best time of our trip.
