Budapest or Bucharest?

Recommended Posts

Eyeing 2 itineraries - both end with a few days in one or the other.

Thoughts on what's the best?


Some sailings have either as a stop ..but then we lose the overnight in Vienna.

Budapest is always a favourite for us...


One other thing to consider is the direction you are sailing. We found we enjoyed starting in Bucharest, as they are still a bit behind in recovery from the years of oppression. If you start in Bucharest, you cruise towards recovery.


If you start in Budapest, you cruise from the "haves" to the "have nots". One person posted it was a bit depressing to sail in that direction.
