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.

Stay.com Editors' Note

The Museum of Ethnography (Néprajzi Múzeum) position opposite Parliament says much about how seriously Hungarians take their folk traditions. Displays of Hungarian village and farm life, folk art and customs are accompanied by English texts.

Originally constructed to serve as the Supreme Court, this monumental, gilt-columned edifice with ceiling frescoes by Károly Lotz is anything but folky.
