Treasures in Budapest

Originally two cities on the east and west bank of the Danube, Budapest is still split between the medieval streets of Buda and urban Pest, with its strong commercial heart. Discover its many sides on holidays to Budapest.

A grand, architectural wonderland by day, Budapest turns into a glittering, cosmopolitan warren of ruin bars by night. It’s crowned by historic buildings but cowed by its turbulent 20th century history. It invites adventurers and explorers to its museums and marvels, but welcomes languid loungers who just want to spend the day in the Gellert baths, too. Christmas markets and warming food keep the city welcoming even when the temperature plunges and its proximity to the rest of Eastern Europe make Budapest a natural stop on a multi-centre trip. After all, the Romans and the Ottomans themselves saw fit to build their marvellous baths here, the least you can do is stay and enjoy them. Book flights to Budapest and make a splash in the coolest city in Europe.

Belvaros, District V
District V in Budapest city.

Budapest’s ‘Inner City’ is full of historic buildings, superb cafés and great shopping. Belvaros, or District V, lies along the east bank of the Danube in Pest and follows the old city walls. Shopping is great on Váci Utca, where you will find the famous Viennese-style cafés. The glorious St. Stephen’s Basilica – a wonder of neo-classical architecture – starts the walk up to Heroes Square through the Oktagon. At the weekend, it is worth visiting Erzsébet tér (Elizabeth’s Square) to people watch, or drink and chat with the locals who show up in force.
