A United States naval officer, Rear Admiral David F. Baucom has traveled to numerous destinations worldwide n both his professional and private life. Among all his travels, RADM David Baucom lists Budapest, Hungary, as one of his favorite places to visit.

One of the best ways to see any city for the first time is through a guided tour. In Budapest, popular tours include a Jewish heritage tour through the historic Jewish quarter of the city. Food and wine aficionados will enjoy the Etyek wine tour. The excursion to this north Budapest community includes visits to multiple cellars and concludes with a traditional Hungarian wine dinner.

Top historic sites in Budapest include the Castle District and the Chain Bridge. The former is home to the Budapest History Museum, Buda Castle, and major monuments, while the Chain Bridge extends along the beautiful Danube River. The 19th-century structure connecting Pest and Buda provides picturesque views of the city as well as World Heritage-protected areas.
