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.

Cozy, gourmet restaurantStay.com Editors' Note
Baraka’s owners Leora and David tend to you personally in this outstanding restaurant, invariably filled with repeat customers. Refreshingly lighter than typical Hungarian fare, the food here is mostly fusionesque, richly embellished with Asian seasonings and piquant spices.
Fish and seafood sit centre stage, but there are creative specials like pan-fried goose liver slices layered between crispy wonton skins in a pool of ginger-infused sauce. The mostly Hungarian wine selection is top notch. David worked at the City Bakery in New York, and his delicious breads and desserts are not to be missed. The sleek, minimalist interior is surprisingly intimate.
