A couple of days relaxing in Croatia was a must before heading on over to Hungary because we knew there was going to be so much to see and do over the next few days! It took approximately 6 hours to drive from Croatia to Budapest which is where we stayed in Hungary.
We stayed in Budapest for 3 days but we could have easily stayed for more! We could not believe how much there was to see and do, we barely had enough time to eat or drink. Budapest is a great place for families, you can access mostly everything easily with pushchairs. The only attraction that was slightly difficult with a pushchair was the castle because there was quite a few steps with not many ramps!

Magitsziget Water Park:
We know one of the main things to do in Budapest is visit one of their hot baths but we had our 3 year old with us so decided to go to Margitsziget Water Park at Margaret Island instead which was way more fun any way. We found Margitsziget which is a spacious water park which has lots of space for lounging around, many slides, swimming pools and even hot baths- you can easily spend a day here alone!
