Wide selection of hotels in Budapest
Budapest is the capital of Hungary. Anyone who has only a day for
sightseeing has a busy schedule. It would be a pity to miss out on Buda
Castle, the banks of the Danube and Andrássy Avenue, all of which
are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The area surrounding
the castle abounds with museums such as the Castle Museum, the Museum of
Military History and the Hungarian National Gallery. And don't miss out
on the spectacular views across the Danube from the Royal
of the sights can be seen from the pram line No. 2, which runs along the
bank of the Danube. From the northern terminal on Jászai Mari tér,
the tram goes past the Parliament before reaching the river bank, which
offers spectacular views of the Matthias Church, the Fishermen's
Bastion, Castle District, Chain Bridge, Elizabeth Bridge, Gellért
Hill, Gellért Hotel and Baths and finally, just before reaching
the Lágymányosi Bridge, the new National Theatre and the
Palace of Arts. Returning, the Corvinus University is a must-see as is
the Central Market Hall and Vigadó Concert Hall as well as
Gresham Palace and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences both of which are
situated at the Roosevelt Square.
Budapest is the place to go
to at the moment. It is often cheap to travel there, and restaurants are
inexpensive. Even the best of them are affordable, and there are great
gastronomic experiences to be found.
