Sights include—but are certainly not limited to—a swim-up chess game, a falconeer, and incredible street art.

Budapest is a magical place filled with historic architecture, an abundance of open-air markets, and the occasional swim-up chess tournament. A recent video from Vimeo user Tools-of-Dad shared a first-person view of Hungary's capital, from the scene's bustling nightlife (think: DJs donned in red, full-body jumpsuits) to a morning stroll on the city's Chain Bridge. It's the perfect opportunity to slip away from the daily grind into a quick mental getaway—or plan your next trip. Seriously, though: The video is abstract enough to serve as a loose itinerary for taking in Budapest's best scenes. Check it out above.
