Budapest and its surrounding is a real paradise for sport events ranging from Ironman 70.3 events, to Formula 1 GPs, Red Bull Air Race and marathon runs offering splendid views along the two quays of the river Danube. Athletes pass by Buda Castle – part of the UNESCO heritage – Gellért hill, the building of the Parliament, the Chain bridge competing against one another and against the clock.
Regarding the water related links of the city, the Danube is the number one reference, which splits the hilly Buda and the flat Pest side into two. Besides, Budapest is the city of spas, where visitors can reinvigorate in one the 19 different thermal waters or the 8 classical spas, including the Turkish spas, thanks to the unique composition and water temperature.
Since the country has a continental climate, one could expect to arrive in a dry and hot summer.
