Among the jewels of Europe, Budapest boasts history, beauty and sightseeing that are second to none. Flanking each side of the River Danube is spellbinding architecture from its epic past. Teeming with superb restaurants, nightlife and hotels, Budapest is one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
Sightseeing begins on the Buda and Pest Embankments next to the mighty Danube, lined with Budapest hotels, restaurants, bars, museums and parks. The city is packed with UNESCO World Heritage treasures, from its neo-gothic Parliament to Buda Castle, St Stephen’s Basilica and Heroes’ Square. Budapest’s architecture spans dizzyingly from baroque to neo-classical, from gothic to art nouveau – with many Budapest hotels offering fine examples of these styles.
However, Budapest isn’t just about sightseeing. In fact, its nature is as diverse as its architecture. Islands on the Danube, spectacular parks, deep caves and gushing thermal waters give Budapest hotel guests plenty of opportunities to relax.
Before returning to your accommodation in Budapest, you can witness the romance of the city from an atmospheric grand café, feast on goulash or quench your thirst with Hungarian wine.
A must-visit on every traveller’s itinerary, Budapest – and its myriad treasures – is just waiting to be explored.
