Budapest

— 4 nights

Pearl of the Danube

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Escape the urban bustle at Nemzeti Botanikus Kert and Dera Creek. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Fisherman's Bastion, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), see the interesting displays at House of Terror Museum, and get outside with Skyward.
