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 the city life by going to Palatinus Strandfürdő and Skyward. There's lots more to do: ponder the world of politics at Hungarian Parliament Building, get all the equipment you need at Scootapest, look for all kinds of wild species at Sas Hill Nature Reserve, and snap pictures at Szechenyi Lanchid.

A city with a stormy history and a cosmopolitan heart, Thessaloniki attracts visitors with its diverse culinary scene, dynamic nightlife, and youthful energy.
Get in touch with nature at Kalogria Beach and Nea Paralia. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museum of Byzantine Culture, take in panoramic vistas at White Tower of Thessaloniki, appreciate the history behind Monument of Alexander The Great, and wander the streets of Ladadika District.

To see photos, ratings, maps, and tourist information, read Thessaloniki trip site.

Getting from Budapest to Thessaloniki by flight takes about 5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Budapest to Thessaloniki due to the time zone difference.
