I have 1-2 (most likely 3 days/2 nights) nights to spare on my own (a frequent solo female traveler) outside the wonderful Budapest. I am determined to include Miskolc's cave bath on the list. I love thermal spas and can't get enough of them.
Where are some of the other quaint, safe places that I can use as a base? I will likely leave my big suitcase in the capital city and carry some luggage with me. Does it not make sense to visit the west side of the country via Budapest? I will see more, but also spend more time in transit. By the way, I will use public transportation all the way.
