Formerly known as Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, the Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD), is Hungary’s main international airport, and the main international gateway into Budapest. It’s the largest of the four commercial airports in Hungary and the busiest airfield in the country.
The airport is located 16 km southeast of Budapest. It has two terminals and offers duty free shops, currency exchange, ATMs, restaurants, a post office and other airport facilities and still commonly called just Ferihegy, is the international airport serving the Hungarian capital city of Budapest, and by far the largest of the country's four commercial airports. Transit from the airport into the city is by airport transfer, bus, minibus, train, taxi and car rental.
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.
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.
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.
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.
