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.

An endearing attraction with remnants of Communism days is the Children’s Railway, set up as the Pioneer’s Railway by the Communist authorities immediately after the war. It is today run by kids between ages 10-14. Adults drive, while their younger colleagues check tickets.
The 11km journey runs from Széchenyi-hegy hill to Hüvösvölgy, via János-hegy hill, passing the key points of the Buda slopes.
