About Budapest

Great food, art nouveau-style architecture and the majestic buildings from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a fascinating Turkish bath culture are only some of the reasons to visit Budapest, also known as the “Pearl of the Danube”.

The Hungarian capital is one of Europe’s most beautiful gems, with a wealth of beautiful and unique sights on both banks of the Danube. More than 2,000 years of memories are waiting to impress visitors to Budapest.

Budapest is widely known for its well-kept pre-war cityscape, with a great variety of streets and landmarks in classical architecture.

The Hungarian Parliament building, the “House of the Country”, located on the Danube bank, is an iconic building of Budapest’s World Heritage and is the home of legislature and the guardian of the Hungarian Holy Crown.

There are Roman remains at the Aquincum Museum, and historic furniture at the Nagytétény Castle Museum, just 2 out of 223 museums in Budapest. The Castle Hill, the River Danube embankments and the whole of Andrássy út have been officially recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
