Where to Stay

A view of a colourful Budapest neighbourhood

With 23 districts across the city, there is plenty of choice when it comes to staying in Budapest. Belvaros is the main central district of the city and is usually the first choice when it comes to booking an apartment. Elizabeth Town is an equally buzzing area and is the historic Jewish quarter of Pest. To experience even more of Budapest’s intriguing history, book a property in Óbuda, the city’s oldest district, or in the 13th century district of Varnegyed. See two worlds meet when historic merges with modern in the area of Lipotvaros. For an apartment with a view, head to Újbuda, a district set atop a limestone hill situated high above the Danube. Several types of accommodation are available in Ferencvaros, a trendy district with outdoor cafes, art galleries and fin-de-siecle buildings.

Things to Do

Budapest is filled with interesting sights

Budapest is a treasure trove of historic buildings and inspiring design. It is well known for its mix of architectural styles from a range of distinct periods: Roman, Romantic and Modern. Main attractions include the Great Synagogue, the largest Jewish house of worship outside of New York, featuring Romantic and Moorish elements; the Veli Beji Roman Baths, considered to be one of the most beautiful Ottoman-era Baths in Europe; the modern Palace of Arts Concert Hall and the Hungarian National Museum and the Lutheran Church of Budavar: both exquisite examples of the influence of the Neoclassical period. The city also has many scenic areas to walk along, from the banks of the River Danube to Gellért hill. An early morning walk can be followed by an afternoon relaxing in the Széchenyi Thermal Bath.

Eating and Drinking

A typical Hungarian dish

Traditional fare at low prices can be found throughout the city. Magyar Etterem Essorozo offers up a number of tasty dishes including a wide selection of game. Each of the main courses costs approximately €10. Other dishes sure to be seen on the menu of any traditional restaurant are gulyás, galuska and Pörkölt. Budapest is known more for its cafes than its restaurants. One cafe which cannot be missed is Gerbeaud. Located in Vorosmarty Square, it has been serving quality cakes since 1858. Ruin pubs are a unique experience in Budapest and are the most trendy place to have a drink. Corvin teto can be found on the roof terrace of former Corvin department store and boasts a magnificent view. Tundergyar (Fairy Factory) in the 9th district is also a good choice.

Getting Around

One of Budapest's famous trams

Using public transport is probably the most efficient way to travel around Budapest, especially if you are staying in one of the outer districts. The system is comprised of a wide variety of trams, buses, trolleys and metro trains and there is a reliable night service too. Public transport in the city is also considerably cheaper than other European capitals. Several tickets are available and include a single ticket, single transfer ticket, metro section ticket, 24-hour travel cards for groups and singles, a 72-hour travel card, 7-day travel-card, funicular, chairlift, night tickets and boat tickets. Anybody staying in the city centre will find it easy to travel around on foot. It is also possible to commute by bike but very few public transport lines will allow you to carry your bike on board.
