Top 10 winter tips in Budapest by CNN Travel

A recent article by CNN Travel lists 10 top features of Budapest, which will warm the soul of any visitor coming to the Hungarian capital. Chrismas markets are wonderful (the one at the Basilica has been selected the 2nd best in Europe), the hot water spashave unforgettable unique atmosphere, the Christmas light tram is amazing, the Opera is one of the most beautiful in the world and of course the ’ruin bar’ feature is an unmissable experience. In these bars we suggest to drink beer or ’pálinka’, the origin protected Hungarian spirit, but for wines it is better to visit one of the fantastic wine bars or wine shops of the city. Borbázis for example is a new wine shop right in the heart of the ruin bar district, it is situated in the always busy Király street and offers more than 1000 Hungarian wines. They sell for example this outstanding Kadarka – indigenous grape of the Carpathian Basin – from Gróf Buttler Winery, Eger.„Extremely intense and rich on the nose, inwhich we meet the character of botrytis (as Tokaji Aszú or Szamorodni). Rich in sweet spices, sweet, fully ripe red and forest fruits. Concentrated, deep, complex, full bodied wine, where the crisp acids give liveliness. Has a long ageing potential.”
