Irresistible romance and fin-de-siècle flights of fancy: These are the hallmarks of Budapest’s mesmeric beauty. Its historical legacy ornaments either side of the Danube, linked by four elegant and beautifully illuminated bridges. To the west, the hilltop Buda Castle looks down over the medieval quarter; and to the east, the domed Parliament building fringes the Pest riverbank. You can’t help but marvel at the tremendous range of the city’s 19th-century architecture, from the Renaissance-style opera house and the Moorish Revival synagogue to the Neoclassical basilica of St Stephen and the Romanesque Fisherman’s Bastion.
And when you’re done, there’s no better place to relax than at one of Budapest’s many thermal baths. More than 100 springs bubble from beneath these streets. For a taste of the vibrant local life (not to mention exquisite cuisine), check out the three-story Great Market Hall, or the romkocsmák (or ruin pubs) that pop up in abandoned buildings.
Budapest International Airport (BUD) is only 10 miles from the city centre, connected by an airport minibus. Or a 20-minute journey by public bus will deposit you at the nearest metro station. Taxis and car hire are available at the airport. If you’re travelling from within Europe, you don’t need to fly at all — 25 of the continent’s capital cities have train connections to Budapest. It’s easy, and generally preferable, to get around the city without a car. The excellent public transport system includes a metro as well as suburban trains, and a large bus network. Trams and trolleybuses can be the most scenic way to get between the sights, not to mention the four boat lines that will take you up and down the river. Cycling is another option, with plenty of bikeshare docking stations, as well as electric scooter hire.
Budapest is at its best in summer, when the sunshine and warm temperatures encourage everyone into the city’s beer gardens (kertek). The months of June to August are crammed with outdoor events and performances, from the traditional St Stephen’s Day celebrations to the Sziget Festival, which takes place on an island in the middle of the river. The bright but crisper days of spring and autumn can be a good time to enjoy the sights with a bit more breathing room; many kertek open from March or April, which is also the time of the two-week Budapest Spring Festival. Ultimately, this lively city has plenty happening all year, and while things do get quieter in winter — when the snow falls and the cold really settles in — its white Christmases can be a magical draw.
Getting less attention than Castle Hill, this 771-foot-high lump of dolomite is a fantastic viewing spot and boasts its own historic landmarks, including the Citadella, a mid-19th-century fortress, and the Liberty Monument. Wander south and you’ll find Bartók Béla út, the student neighbourhood and increasingly trendy hangout.
This island retreat, 1.5 miles end to end, is reached by the Árpád and Margaret bridges. It’s dotted with beautiful gardens and quirky attractions, including 13th-century church ruins, an Art Nouveau water tower, and adventure pools.
You’ll need a guide to explore the extraordinary subterranean system of tunnels beneath the city’s 10th district. They have been here since the Middle Ages, when limestone was quarried to build the city. The deep white-walled caverns have also served as wine cellars and breweries through the ages, before aircraft engines were built here during World War II.
