Budapest Guide

Just strolling the streets of Budapest, you’ll see some wondrous buildings and come across some hidden gems, but there are some things which you really mustn’t miss on a trip to perhaps Central Europe’s most beautiful city.

First off is the neo-Gothic Hungarian Parliament Building. As the largest building in Hungary, and the largest Parliament in Europe, it is hard not miss, looming over the Danube, and it was from here, on the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square, that Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic in 1989.
Within, visitors can see hundreds of statues of illustrious figures from the nation’s past, as well as the Holy Crown of Hungary, proudly displayed in the central hall. Nearby lies another sacred site for proud Hungarians, the Basilica of St Stephen, the founder of Hungary, whose incorruptible right hand remains mummified in the basilica’s reliquary.
Nightlife in Budapest is equally as mixed as the city’s architecture, with no one area laying claim to be the ‘party are’ of the city. There are no limits on opening hours, meaning nights can go on long into the night or even just carry on straight through to the next day.
