Description

Perhaps the most difficult part of the Budapest marathon is avoiding the distractions of the amazing sites you see along the way. The marathon begins in Heroes' Square in the shadows of imposing statues from Hungarian history then continues down Unesco World Heritage protected Andrassy Avenue, past the art-nouveau Gresham Four Seasons Hotel, the iconic Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle, the idyllic Margaret Island, and the monumental Parliament building. But what makes the Budapest Marathon truly memorable is the fact you can soak your strained muscles in one of the many thermal baths scattered throughout the city. The minerals in the water beneath Budapest can work wonders. Spectators can enjoy a host of activities and concerts congregated around the Heroes' square starting line. A brief fireworks display is a fitting close to this fantastic marathon.
