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.

Scenic views on a 1040 metre-long route Editors' Note

The Libegö chairlift, constructed in 1970, runs between the saddles of Zugliget and John Hill, offering riders a superb view and an interesting diversion from the hectic traffic or Budapest.

This slow and gentle ski lift-style ride sweeps right up to the top of János-hegy, the highest hill within the city limits and equipped with a lookout tower.
