Budapest is known as a place where young people come to party. It is true that bars are plenty in Budepest and alcohol is unusually cheap, however the beauty of this city is underrated as most of the buildings in this city are castles. Notable beautiful places to visit are Fisherman’s Bastion which provides a panoramic view of the entire city, and the Citadella which is an ancient structure built on a massive hill which provides a stunning view of the Danube River.

Berlin is made up of 12 very different boroughs and districts. The expression “this city has something for everyone” has been said to death, but Berlin perhaps more than any city definitely lives up to this promise. Here are some of our favorite districts: Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf: This district is all about culture. It is home to Charlottenburg Palace and the opera house and is the place to go for anyone looking for a culture trip. We also love the Friedrichshain district where you can find some of the top night clubs in the city (berlin is known for its amazing nightlife) and the famous Simon-Dach-Straße which is a street with an unbelievable amount of pubs to choose from.
