Budapest, the capital city of Hungary
Budapest is up there among the world’s most romantic, entertaining capitals. Hungary’s capital is truly a city of a thousand faces, offering a unique atmosphere with an authentic Central Eastern European culture of architecture, cafés and world famous cuisine. Budapest boasts broad boulevards and green parks, grand Art-Nouveau mansions and vibrantly painted churches, lively cafés and world-class music venues.
The city is divided into two parts by the meandering Danube, ironically spanned by several stunning bridges. Take a look at the riverside panorama of Budapest, which is one of the 9 Hungarian landmarks ranked as a UNESCO World Heritage site and it will make you understand why the city is referred as the Pearl of the Danube.
The fascinating memoirs of different eras of Hungary are all well preserved and offer a truly genuine experience. The majestic castle of Buda, the unique design of the Parliament, world famous baths, or the first metro line of the continent are just a few highlights this city has to offer. Don’t miss a Danube cruise to admire the beauty of the city.
Our tip: Visit the hidden treasure of Budapest: Károly garden surrounded by restaurants, cafés and shops – a place to be! In the evening, experience the nightlife at the Gozsdu court – the new hotspot of Budapest.
After dawn, a pulsing fresh artistic night life begins. Pubs and open air places offer exceptional Hungarian wine, palinkas (traditional fruit brandy) and live music. Taste local specialities like the pörkölt (beef stew) or the spicy halászle (fish soup) and the renewed Hungarian cuisine in one of the Michelin awarded restaurants, or just have a snack, a lángos (flatbread). Finally do not miss to try out the Túró Rudi (chocolate bar filled with curd).
Go to the Grand Boulevard (Nagykörút) and the Central Market Hall. You will find individual shops, with small to mid-sized floor space on the Grand Boulevard.
