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.

Budapest's main racetrack makes for a great day out Editors' Note

Named after Hungary’s most famous racehorse, Kincsem Park comprises a racetrack, a busy bar and a pleasingly dilapidated grandstand, from where punters can observe the flat races. Trotting has also been moved here since the track was demolished to make way for the Arena Plaza Mall by Keleti station – which means that the traditional New Year’s Eve meet, where locals gather to compare plans for the parties ahead, now takes place here.
