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. With its five-star hotels, spa baths, landmark coffeehouses and key restaurants wonderfully restored, Budapest provides top-notch services. An underground counterculture and savage party scene complete the picture of this cool, modern city.
Famous The grotto church
The grotto churchStay.com Editors' Note
Located on Gellart Hill, the Cave Church (Gellért-hegyi Sziklatemplom) didn’t pull its name from thin air; the unique place of worship is a unique grotto chapel, under the care of the Hungarian Paulite order of monks.
Though closed during Communism, the church has since been reopened, a quiet reprieve from city noise. The interior of the Cave Church is rather small, with natural rocks lining the walls.
Look closer and you’ll see wall niches filled with various statues and altars, all in a surprisingly calming atmosphere.
If you visit the Cave Church during service you may be able to hear the unique acoustics of the church when music is being played. Step outside for a beautiful view of Liberty Bridge and the St. Istvan statue.
