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.

Where the attraction action isStay.com Editors' Note
Dominated by the hotchpotch Royal Castle, housing the Hungarian National Gallery, National Szechényi Library and Budapest History Museum, the Castle District is unsurprisingly tourist central.
Traffic has been curtailed, so the steep cobbled streets echo with horses' hooves and tourist footwear – those not coming by faux-historic carriage come by funicular or the mini Castle bus. Most flock to the Fishermen’s Bastion and Matthias Church – enjoy the view, then quickly head to an overpriced café.
