Budapest— 9 nights
Pearl of the Danube
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.Step out of Budapest to go to Eger and see Eger Castle, which is approximately 2 hours away. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Hungarian Parliament Building, take in the views from Szechenyi Lanchid, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), and steep yourself in history at Liberty Statue.
