About Budapest

Budapest is Hungary’s capital and largest city with 1.7 million inhabitants. Known as the "Pearl of the Danube" it is the joining of the cities of Buda and Pest, separated by the River Danube.

These days Buda is one of the most important residential areas of the city, while Pest is the financial centre. The city as a whole presents the traveller with one of the most beautiful places in Europe, and many attractions of great interest as we review below.

Budapest Parliament

It was built in the late 19thC to symbolise the power of the Austro-Hungarian empire, evident in every corner of this great assembly. We highly recommend a visit, the most important areas being the principal staircase, the hall and the great dome.

Buda Castle

Also known as the Royal Palace, the castle is one of Budapest's most iconic buildings and it houses the City’s Museum, the National Gallery and the Széchenyi Library.

Chain Bridge

One of Budapest’s most striking features is its bridges, full of history and beauty. The Chain Bridge is the oldest of them all and at the time played an important role in the development of the city. At night both Buda Castle and the bridge are illuminated, together presenting one of the most spectacular views of the city.

Fishermen's Bastion

Continuing places with great vistas, the Fishermen's Bastion has an excellent perspective of Pest and the Budapest Parliament. The name of this monument is in honour of fishermen who defended the city walls back in the middle ages.

Budapest Opera

The Budapest Opera House was built in the 19thC and can hold over 1,200 people. While the building has guided tours of the Opera’s main places, it is well worth going to a concert, because unlike other world opera locations, prices are still quite cheap.


After the Jerusalem Synagogue, the Synagogue of Budapest is the largest in the world and has an impressive interior. Outside is the Jewish cemetery and it’s also worth taking a look at the Tree of Life.


For six centuries Budapest spas have enjoyed an extraordinary reputation, so much so that it has become known as the city of spas. The most prominent are the reputed Gellert Spa, the Széchenyi for its stunning pools and the Rudas Spa for its history and beauty.

No review of Budapest’s attractions would be complete without mention of the Museum of Fine Arts, a boat trip on the Danube, or a visit to the Basilica of St. Stephen and others.

Budapest is a city full of places to discover and well worth visiting. If you need an hotel in the city, then will offer you the best and widest range of hotels in Budapest.
