Famous Hungarian Parliament

A city with a thousand year old culture, Budapest is the capital of Hungary. It has two sides, the hilly Buda district, and flat land Pest, which stretch along the banks of the Danube River and are connected by a 19th-century Chain Bridge.

The city is known for its many monuments and relics from its past under Roman occupation and also the Ottoman Empire and some touches from its union with Austria. Sometimes described as "Little Paris of Middle Europe", the city has two different characters on both sides, giving it a unique personality that is difficult to resist.

Things to do in Budapest

Budapest has lots to offer, from dynamic Pest with its riverside promenades, antique stores, cafés, flea markets and the largest parliament building in Europe. To hilly suburban Buda with its historic castle district of museums, medieval houses, streets, Roman ruins and caves. 

There is something interesting at every corner in Budapest, historic buildings, galleries, synagogues and churches. A visit to the city would most definitely not be a boring one. 

Heroes’ Square

Situated at the end of Andrássy Avenue is Heroe’s Square, which has impressive art gallery buildings on either side. Inside the square, can be found the iconic monument which depicts the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars. The Chieftains are believed to have led the Hungarian people to the Carpathian basin from central Asia. The monument also depicts a variety of historical Hungarian figures as well as the Archangel Gabriel on the top of the central pillar, holding the Hungarian crown. The square is known to have a huge amount of traffic, especially around the monument.

Liberty Statue

First erected in 1947 in memory of the Soviet troops who died liberating the country, the Liberty Statue can be seen overlooking city from Gellert Hill. It now commemorates all who lost their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of the country. It is one of the few Communist statues which remain after Hungary’s transition to democracy. 

The walk to the top of the hill is well worth it as the foot of the statue offers a panoramic view of the city.

Gellért Baths

For a relaxing spa day, visit the Gellert Bath and Spa centre. It features a range of plunge pools, a Finnish sauna, an effervescent swimming pool and a number of other saunas.

Built in the Art Nouveau style between 1912 and 1918, the spa was greatly damaged during WW II but renovated to its former glory in 2008.

Margaret Island

Situated in the middle of the Danube is this lovely 2.5km long island filled with parkland and recreational facilities. Visitors can hire and tour the island with golf carts or pedal carts or just walk and enjoy the scenic views. 

It is also a great place for joggers and runners who have a track encircling the island, away from the noise of the city. The island also features an aviary which cares for injured birds, some medieval ruins, and a music fountain, which has water that dances quite regularly, to classical music.

Budapest Cuisine​

The rich and flavourful food of Eastern Europe is great for long winter months, and summers too. Some traditional dishes you are bound to come across here, include beef goulash, which is a beef stew flavoured with onions, caraway seeds and paprika, and usually served with dumplings. There is also Lángos, a deep fried dough, which is sometimes served as a burger with meat, onions and sauce sandwiched between two slabs of this deliciousness. 

For dessert you could try a Dobos torte, sponge cake layered with buttercream and chocolate and topped with caramel.
