Budapest - History and Modernity
Budapest, the historical capital of Hungary, lies directly on the Danube. High above the city is the castle quarter - former residence of the monarch. Modern life pulsates at the foot of the hill. The striking contrasts in this city make for its very special charm.
There is so much to discover: Above all the monumental baroque palace complex on the rock plateau and Europe's largest synagogue, in which classical concerts also take place and 3,000 people can be accommodated. In addition, the imposing neo-Gothic building of the Parliament on the banks of the Danube in Pest also characterises the cityscape.
Sports and enjoyment
But Budapest also stands for enjoyment of life. Treat yourself to a break in a typical coffee house like Café Gerbeaud or pack your swimming trunks and enjoy the thermal water in the Gellért Spa in the magnificent Art Nouveau building with its magnificent outdoor swimming pool.
Váci utca promenade
But then it's time for a shopping tour through the huge Central Market Hall or the gigantic Westend City shopping complex. Most popular, however, is the Váci utca shopping and promenade, where you will find all the renowned world brands.
You can relax on Margaret Island, Budapest's most beautiful park, where you will also find the largest outdoor swimming pool. Treat yourself to a dip in the water and enjoy the atmosphere.
