Holiday in Budapest

Budapest is a gorgeous city where its history, culture, architecture and traditions combine to ensure the perfect city break.

Capital of Hungary and set either side of the river Danube, Budapest boasts a number of World Heritage Sites, two National Parks nearby and a whole host of wonderful spas to relax in whilst on your holiday in the city.

There is usually always an event taking place in Budapest with exhibitions, concerts, festivals, celebrations and theatre performances. In the city visitors will discover a whole host of wonderful shops from the delights on Vaci Street to the Westend City Centre shopping mall; then join the Hungarians in one of the many cafes and relax with a coffee.

Budapest is the only city where there are 80 hot-water springs and a visit to one of the Spas or Thermal Baths is not just relaxing and fun but also a chance to marvel at the spectacular architecture.

Budapest - A UNESCO World Heritage Site

The banks of the Danube in Budapest are maintained as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the river approaching the city from the north winding around Obuda (Old Town) and Margaret Islands before separating Budapest into two: Buda (west) and Pest (east). Buda Castle Quarter, the Millennium Underground railway and Andrassy Avenue have also been declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Getting around Budapest

Travelling around Budapest is simple via Europe’s oldest Underground railway system or the more modern buses, trams and boat services, or of course, by foot. There is also a children’s railway in Budapest.

Set on the banks of the river Danube, the Gothic Hungarian Parliament Building is a most impressive structure and where the Hungarian Crown Jewels are kept. Roman remains may be viewed at the Aquincum Museum, and travel to Castle Hill by funicular and a whole day will disappear! Fishermen’s Bastion, the former Royal Palace, the National Library, museums and Matthias Church are all on Castle Hill in Budapest with the spectacular medieval Baroque houses, the Telephone Museum and the Labyrinth.

The most elegant road in Budapest is Andrassy Avenue where the Opera, Academy of Fine Arts, Heroes’ Square and a number of stunning statues can be found.

A boat trip along the Danube is a must whilst staying in Hungary’s capital and the prettiest stretch is between Visegrad and Esztergom.
