Budapest is really two cities in one—Buda and Pest—separated by the Danube River and linked by a number of bridges. The stunning architecture along the central stretch of the capital is some of the best in Europe, like the Széchenyi Chain Bridge and Opera House. And, of course, here's no view quite as iconic as the Hungarian Parliament reflected in the Danube.
The Hungarian State Opera House has kept its reputation as one of the world's finest theaters ever since it opened in 1884, housing such influential artists as composer Gustav Mahler. Musical prowess aside, the building's neo-Renaissance style must be seen to be believed: think marble columns, wide staircases, and vaulted ceilings covered in murals of Apollo and the nine Muses.
