The Central Hungary/Danube region

The landscape to the north of Budapest is shaped by the river and the hills. You can easily get out into the countryside

along the winding main road that follows the former Roman Limes, or by taking one of several cycling routes that are

being constructed. But the best way to appreciate the river and its sights is to board a boat travelling from Budapest

through the Szentendre Danube branch as far as Visegrád.

Szentendre (C/5)***, a pearl of the Danube Bend, can easily be reached on the “HÉV” train from Budapest’s Batthyány

Square. The green train carriages carry passengers between the capital and many smaller settlements

beyond. Many people live in these towns and villages and commute to work in Budapest.

As the narrow river valley broadens once more, you’ll arrive at one of the

most picturesque Danube settlements – the former capital of Hungary,

Visegrád (B/4)***. Here is the royal palace***, built in the 14th century by

King Charles Robert (Róbert Károly) and reconstructed in Renaissance style

in the 15th century by King Matthias. The palace remains in perfect condition,

and is famous throughout Europe. Fellegvár (Upper Castle) was built in the

13th century on the hill above Visegrád. It played an important role in the city’s

history at times of peace and war alike. You can enjoy the Danube Bend’s

most beautiful panorama*** from the terrace of the castle. The third part of

the monument complex is Solomon’s Tower, a residential fortifi cation built in

the 13th century; today it is a venue for exhibitions. Stay a little longer and pay

a visit to the Tourist Centre and Yurt Camp on Sibrik Hill, shoot down the

summer and winter bob-sleigh track, have a go at mini golf and join one of

the countless marked tourist paths. When there’s winter snow, grab your skis

and try the ski lift at the nearby Nagyvillám. The neighbouring Park Forest

of Pilis is an important hunting range, as well as being popular with hikers.

The stretch of the Danube Bend between Esztergom and Visegrád is one of the prettiest in the country. It took thousands

of years for the river to forge its way through the volcanic hills, today known as Visegrád Hill and Börzsöny Mountain,

forming an S-shaped valley as it did so. The area had already attracted prehistoric man, probably less for its panorama

than for its fertile ground. It is no coincidence that the conquering Hungarian tribes also chose this site for their fi rst

royal capital. Esztergom (A/4)*** is the “Cradle of Hungary”, its oldest city and its capital for 250 years.

Those living on the right-hand side of the Danube often say that the best thing about the left-hand side is the view

across to the other side of the river. It is true that there are no sights to compete with Visegrád or Esztergom on

the left side. However, it has worthy sights of a different sort – the Gödöllo Hills, Lower Cserhát and Galga

Valley, former volcanoes (South Börzsöny, Csovár), a limestone mine at Naszály, the Somlyó Hill of Fót (famous

for its grapes), Danube oxbows with wonderful fauna and even a slice of the Great Plain.

Budapest

Budapest because:

• it is the cultural, political and transportation centre of Hungary;

• it is built on both side of the Danube, the great European river that is

registered as a World Heritage panorama;

• nature is safeguarded in two national parks and a number of environmental

protection areas;

• it has represented a “multicultural Europe” for centuries – over 200

nearby villages are populated by Hungarians, Serbs, Slovaks and Germans

(Swabians);

• it has a strong artistic and cultural heritage;

• there’s always something happening: festivals, concerts, theatre performances,

sports competitions, exhibitions, church events, wine celebrations

or handicraft fairs;

• there are many outdoor activities to enjoy: trekking, rock climbing, biking,

horse riding, golf, rowing, swimming, potholing or fl ying;

• its restaurants offer not only Hungarian cuisine – and wine and palinka

– but food from all over the world.

Don’t hesitate – come to Budapest, the centre of things!

There are many ways to explore the city. You can go sightseeing by bus,

boat or taxi. You could get a ride from a friend or take a long walk on foot.

However, a tram is an especially good option in Budapest. The Danube side

panorama*** can be best appreciated from tram No 2. Let’s board at the

Jászai Mari Square terminal on the Pest side of Margaret Bridge (avoiding

the morning or afternoon rush hours) and take a seat next to the window on

the right-hand side. We will soon arrive at Kossuth Square with its statues,

memorials and Parliament***, a huge palace in Neo-Gothic style. After

leaving the square, we’ll proceed to the Danube shore where we can admire

the panorama of Buda, with the churches of Víziváros (Water town) and

the Castle District, where the slim tower of Matthias Church reaches to the

skies. On the journey between the historical Chain Bridge*** and the modern

Elizabeth Bridge, you’ll see the impressive Castle Palace and Gellért Hill’s

steep wall of rock. The Saint Gellért Statue is perched on the side of the hill,

and above it sits the Citadel. At the southern foot of the hill, another amazing

structure, the Liberty Bridge, connects the two shores. We’ll alight from the

tram and walk over to the Hotel Gellért. Here we can refresh ourselves with

thermal water from the fountain beneath the cupola. On the opposite side of

the river, we can see Corvinus University’s Faculty of Economy and the

Central Market Hall*** with its colourful top.

Now let’s take tram No 19 towards Batthyány Square. Try to fi nd a seat on

the right-hand side of the tram for the best views of the Pest panorama,

with the Baroque towers of the Downtown Parish Church***, the hotels

on the Danube shore, the “Vigadó” building and the boats docking at the

riverside. We can see the Hungarian Academy of Science and the Secessionist-

style Gresham Palace, which now functions as a luxury hotel. At

the tram’s terminus, we can study the Parliament building up close, its

dome refl ected in the water, and stroll around the square before taking

the underground to Deák Square. From here, let’s take continental

Europe’s oldest underground train line (which has been running since

1896) to Andrássy Avenue and Heroes’ Square***. There are regular

stops at which we can emerge to enjoy some of the sights along the

road above.

Castle Hill*** deserves at least a full day. If you allow enough time, you can

visit the most important sights like Matthias Church***, the Fishermen’s

Bastion*** and the former Royal Palace***. However, we can also take

a walk around the narrow streets with their Baroque houses that were

originally built in medieval times. After stopping at the Telephone Museum

and exploring the Labyrinth, we can have an ice cream or a cake at the

traditional Ruszwurm Café.

To get a proper feel for the city’s colour and energy, we should take

tram Nos 4–6 and cross the 4km-long Great Boulevard (Nagykörút)

from Margaret Bridge to Petofi Bridge. If you prefer a less-conventional

form of transport, try taking the Funicular up Castle Hill, or go into the

Buda Hills via the Cogwheel Railway, the Chairlift or the Children’s

Railway. If you fancy travelling by water, we could take a boat trip

to Margaret Island***, one of the biggest parks in the city.

There are many cultural attractions for us to enjoy. The Museum

of Fine Arts*** and the Hungarian National Gallery*** have a

range of top-notch exhibitions, and there are many annual events

like the Spring and Autumn festivals, the Island Festival and the

Celebration of Crafts. Listen to a performance at the Opera House or

a concert at the Palace of Arts. Alongside the main venues, there are

a number of small theatres, stages, clubs and underground pubs. Liszt

Ferenc Square and Ráday Street are good places to start.

The city has some other rare and special features. It is, for example, the only

metropolis in the world where you’ll fi nd 80 hot-water springs. The thermal

water has been feeding spas here for almost 2,000 years. The Rudas***,

Király (Royal) and Császár (Imperial) spas – with their splendid cupolas

– are among the few surviving examples of Turkish architecture. The Neo-

Baroque Széchenyi Thermal Baths*** – located in City Park (Városliget)***

– is the biggest spa complex in Europe; however, you also shouldn’t miss

the Secessionist-style Gellért Baths***. There are many options for those

who prefer some active recreation. Armed with helmet and torch, you can

visit some dripstone and aragonite caves***; alternatively, you might take

a pleasant walk in the Buda Hills. There are several tourist trails and lovely

parks like Margaret Island, City Park and Shipyard (Hajógyári) Island. These

places can be reached on foot or along cycling routes. After you’ve strolled

in the parks, you can go shopping on Váci Street*** or at the Westend City

Center shopping hall. Finish the day off with a coffee at a café terrace or a

more substantial meal at one of the many enticing restaurants.

"Ideal Location, accomodations so-so"

Pros: This apartment is located on Vaci Street, which was ideal for walking to all the major sights and near restaurants and a bakery where we picked up pastries for breakfast every morning. The apartment fit our simple needs with a comfortable bed, small sitting area, small kitchen and bathroom, TV, free wi-fi. It's located on a central enclosed space between buildings, so it is very quiet. There was an entry to one other apartment from this area, but there was quite a bit of security to get to the apartment door, so it felt very safe.

Cons: The washing machine was either broken or we weren't operating it correctly (because the instructions were in Polish) and half of the window coverings were not in optimal condition so, though the windows were covered, it made the place appear shabby. The ground floor entry is from a large, clean, concrete area hemmed in by buildings and this is the area the apartment windows look out on - no view.

We are generally satisfied with simple, adequate accommodations, but if you want a little more comfort and some kind of view, I would not recommend this for you.

Hello,

Thank you for your stay at my apartment and the review after. We are fixing the washing machine and put an English manual beside it. Sorry, but we thought that it has simple programs with different temperatures so everyone will find out which suits the best.
The curtain is also fixed already. :)
Best regards,
Barbara

"NICE PLACE TO STAY"

We rented this apartment for one week based on the location, price, and that the owner spoke English. We are American. We enjoyed our stay at Barbara's apartment. 1056 Budapest Váci street 41. … More

Hello,
Thank your for your detailed review and kind words. :)
I would like to reflect on 3 things:
1. Until 2 weeks ago I didnt get any notification from Holiday Lettings/Trip advisor when receving a message on their platform (despite I wrote many notes for them about this) that could be the reason why we didnt respond immediately, I am sorry about that.
2.The email address in the apartment is correct, my guests always use that to contact me, you might only have misspelt it (I admit it is not an easy word, you have to pay attention to each character :) --->barbara@cedrusegeszseghaz.hu
3.unfortunately there is only 1way from the airport by public transfer which leads through Nyugati train station. It is always our las tasvice because it is not an easy way. It is better if you choose taxi or can get an airport shuttle. But if someone asks for public transport this is the only way. :(

Thank you for chosing my aparment for your trip to Budapest. All the best, Barbara
