Gift Idea: Check Out These Great Maps Of Your Favourite Destinations!

Unique ways of remembering trips always make a great gift, either for a friend or a way to treat yourself ;). After you’ve had a great trip to a destination, you have your photos, but it’s always nice to have another ay to remember it! Forget your fridge magnets, it’s all about map art! Passing a map on a wall in your house you will be able to see all the different destinations you’ve travelled to, each one evoking different memories and feelings! Modern Map art provide great maps of most destinations across the world!


I visited Budapest a few years back and it instantly became one of my favourite, if not my favourite, city in Europe. The stunning architecture, spa culture, beautiful people, and great recreation facilities made it a heaven in the summer sun.


The maps are printed on high-quality museum matte paper and will look great mounted on a wall as they are or framed. The maps can also be customised with different colours for roads, rivers and land. The zoom levels can be adjusted as well as different words placed at the bottom of the maps!


The maps have great detail; here you can see Margaret Island which is situated in the middle of the Danube. The island is mainly used for recreational purposes with landscaped parks, an open air theatre, and is connected to the mainland by the beautiful golden Margaret Bridge on the south side (in white) as well as the Arpad Bridge to the North. On the far side of the island you can see a small rectangle with two dots to the left and one square to the right, these are the swimming pools of Palatinus Strand. During my time in Budapest, I spent a whole day here with 2 friends; there are a total of 11 different swimming pools on the island as well as 4 epic waterslides! On a hot summers day in Budapest, this place is just heaven!

IMG_1955The maps also contain great scenic sites that you may have visited on your travels! The semi-circular Road along the left side of the Danube contains university institutes as well as The Natural History Museum and The Museum of Mathematics 8-). Slight to the north but still on the left side is Gellert Hill which contains the Citadella and has the best views across the city!

Whatever city you have been to, ModernMapArt are sure to have a unique way for you to remember it! Whether it’s a gift for a friend who has been to one of these great destinations, or a cheeky gift for yourself ;), these will look great on any wall!
