A city of beautifully faded elegance

Panoramically divided by the Danube, Hungary’s capital exudes faded grandeur. Comprised of busy Pest and residential Buda, the Habsburg city of grand boulevards and elegant bridges was built in the late 1800s. Subsequent conflicts and Soviet rule left this heritage to crumble. With its five-star hotels, spa baths, landmark coffeehouses and key restaurants wonderfully restored, Budapest remains fascinatingly bullet-scarred but today able to provide top-notch services. An underground counterculture and savage party scene complete the picture.

Beautiful river walkway

Stay Editor's Note

A stroll down Korzo - Danube Embankment (Dunakorzo) is a lovely way to take in the city sights. This passage will take you from Roosevelt Square and Erzsébet Bridge, flowing right alongside the Danube in Pest.

From the Roosevelt Square and Erzsébet Bridge you’ll be able to see the landmark Castle Hill just opposite the river, making for quite a romantic or pensive walk. Though not as vibrant as it was in its 1900s heyday, this passage is still a great way to explore parts of the city.
