Enjoy a truly unique city break when you visit Budapest, home to stunning, UNESCO World Heritage architecture along the River Denube, an internationally-renowned classical music scene and a dynamic contemporary and popular culture. Often deemed the ‘Paris of the East’, Hungary’s capital is a young, lively and exciting destination with an endless list of attractions and activities for every type of visitor; young and old, first-timers and regular guests. Although there are officially 23 distinct districts in this large, cosmopolitan city, it is usually divided more simply into two halves, separated by the Denube river; Buda to the west and Pest to the east. Each one offers an individual flair and unique atmosphere, so visit both to see for yourself all the sides of Budapest’s colourful personality.

The offering of cultural, artistic, historic and modern attractions is extensive in Budapest, so you can tailor your trip to suit your exact needs and wishes. Whether you’re visiting on a week-long vacation, or just have some free time between a conference or business meetings, there is plenty to keep you entertained throughout your whole trip; from sinking into one of the famous old baths or sampling the local cuisine, to shopping in the independent boutiques and discovering the history in the Castle Hill district.
Castle Hill is a top destination spot for history and culture lovers, who can participate in a walking tour along the cobblestone streets and around the numerous insightful museums. Reached by taking the funicular to the top of the hill, this area is home to the very popular Royal Palace, which itself hosts the National Gallery, as well as many other museums and monuments including the Fisherman’s Bastion, the National Dance Theatre, Matthias Church and even a Marzipan Museum! The buildings are charming and make for a picturesque backdrop if you want to stop for a bite to eat and a drink at one of the many cafés or restaurants.
Arguably the best way to see the city as a whole is to take one of the river cruises along the Denube, either during the day to admire the beautiful architecture, including the parliament and government buildings on the river banks, or for a more romantic experience at night-time when you can incorporate an exquisite dinner and dancing beneath the stars into your evening. Another must-do whilst you’re in Budapest is catch a performance at the Budapest Opera House, where some of the world’s finest classical musical is played within a spectacular neo-renaissance building, which first opened in 1884.
