What to see

Budapest — with the majestic Danube passing through the center of the city. Buda, with its romantic atmosphere on one side, and Pest, a dynamic cultural center on the other. It is hard to find another city in the world with such beautiful natural settings, a rich architectural as well as historical heritage, which offers an unparalleled combination of culture, fine cuisine and thermal baths as Budapest. The Buda side with its historical thermal baths and the Royal Palace, the Matthias Church and the zigzagging alleys encompassing the Castle District emanates a sense of tranquility. On the other hand, thanks to its rich museums, the Parliament, the Great Market Hall, St. Stephen’s Basilica (surrounded by pedestrian streets) and the inspiring atmosphere of the ‘Jewish quarter’, Pest offers a bustling, vibrant scene.

The Hungarian capital is definitely a city with a living history. As a spa city, Budapest is more than the sum of its bathing facilities, as it offers a unique blend of Roman, Turkish and European bathing cultures. Budapest is no longer limited to restaurants, outdoor terraces and coffee houses, but rather features a cuisine consisting of a blend of traditional Hungarian flavors and the latest dining trends. Budapest is also a peaceful meeting point of religions and cultures, a coexistence of the spiritual heritage of East and West. Budapest is a melting pot of wide-ranging subcultures making it worth a visit, as it is a familiar and safe metropolis with a human face that also offers a wealth of novelties, experiences and surprises for open-minded visitors.
