Budapest Travel Guide

by our Hungary expert Paul Baderman
Paul BadermanSpanning the Danube, Buda on the hill and Pest on the plain conjure a spectacular cityscape. Blending cobbled streets, neo-classical shrines, art deco lines and a patchwork of disparate styles, this is a city where cultural traditions die hard, yet new generations bring an irrepressible energy.

Bars and clubs are open late, there are film festivals and fashion shows, and menus that have moved on from the obligatory goulash. Climb Gellért Hill for fabulous views, chill to open-air opera on Margaret Island, try a thermal bath or take the family to the interactive House of the Future. Traditionalists will make for Fisherman’s Bastion, the Aquincum Museum with its Roman ruins, and drool over confections served up at Gerbeaud’s coffee house.
