Budapest Among Top 10 Family-Friendly Destinations
Budapest finished seventh on a list of the top 25 countries for a weekend getaway for families compiled by a popular travel website. The list includes exotic, faraway destinations such as Thailand and Japan, as well as other European countries like Ireland and Portugal.

The list was compiled by Club Med based on the average spend per holiday; the total holiday visits from UK residents; the volume of social media posts; the cost of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant and the world happiness score.

With around 346,664 tourist visits and a score of 4.98 points out of 10, the Hungarian capital has proven itself to be a cost-friendly option for larger families. In fact, the average cost of a meal in Budapest is just €5.59 and the average spend per holiday visit is €123.40.

According to Club Med, the city of Budapest has a surprising amount of activities for families to enjoy. From zoos and castles to the children’s railway and museums, there’s plenty to see and do.

The Hungarian capital finished before cities like Rome, Lisbon, Helsinki and Tokyo.

The most family-friendly destination, according to Club Med, is Madrid, Spain, followed by locations in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Thailand, and Austria.
