Budapest was literally built on water: there is a uniquely rich network of streams, mineral and medicinal waters under the city which nourish the numerous thermal baths, spas and swimming pools that Budapest is justly famed for. The Danube, which flows through the city like an artery, is not only a beautiful sight, but supplies Budapest with one of the best and tastiest drinking waters in Europe. As we walk along the Buda banks of the Danube during our 2-hour “refreshing” tour, we see the fabulous domed Turkish bath; we taste several kinds of local mineral waters. Moreover, you will hear many interesting facts and legends about the Danube, as well as stories of miraculous recoveries, turn-of-the-century drinking cures, donkey-drawn water carts, and filthy fish markets.
