You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Budapest is known for historic sites, spas, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the landmark architecture of Hungarian Parliament Building, soothe aching muscles at Széchenyi Thermal Bath, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), and admire the masterpieces at Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galeria).

To see where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Budapest online trip builder .

New York City, USA to Budapest is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. Traveling from New York City to Budapest, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect slightly colder temperatures when traveling from New York City in November; daily highs in Budapest reach 50°F and lows reach 36°F.

Nestled between the Matra and Bukk Mountains in northern Hungary, Eger represents a mixture of historical discovery and relaxing pleasures.
Explore Eger's surroundings by going to Tisza Tavi Okocentrum (in Poroszlo), Thermalbad Sara (in Hegyko) and High Tech Sports Base 1 (in Matrafured). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Eger Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Minorita Templom, don't miss a visit to Torok Kori Minaret, and relax and rejuvenate at Egerszalók Medical- and Thermal Bath.

Plan my Eger trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by bus from Budapest to Eger takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. In November, plan for daily highs up to 49°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can go by car to Debrecen.
