Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In a quiet, cobble-stoned street, no more than a stone's throw from the Basilica, this apartment offers a welcome calming refuge in this busy, cosmopolitan city. Neighbouring streets link Szabadság square to Szent István square, and beyond to Erzsébet square and Deák Ferenc Square. The apartment is on the top floor of this 19 Century house, with lift access, where the traditional meets modern-day convenience and comfort. Ample space for four sharing, but equally suitable as a cosy retreat for two.

The Central Hungary/Danube region
In Central Hungary and the Danube region you will find many aspects of traditional and modern-day culture represented, whether through music, the arts, handicrafts, or live-performance in theatres, and other venues. Festivals are held regularly, whether in celebration of traditional foods (for example the Mangalica Festival) or traditional wines (for example, HungarianTokaji). The region enjoys a continental climate, with wide (but relatively predictable) variation from very hot in the peak summer months, to very cold in the depths of mid-winter. This makes for seasonally-rich contrasts, from Christmas markets and mulled wine (best enjoyed outdoors) to impromptu garden bars (or kerts) in unlikely locations during late spring and summer. Cafés, Hungarian and International cuisine are never far away. A visit to the thermal baths can be enjoyed throughout the year.
In Budapest itself, the Opera House hosts spectactular performances (including Ballet) all year-round. With a little advance planning for Premiéres, and sometimes at the last minute for Repertoire pieces, tickets can be obtained making a visit to the Opera House on Andrássy út a reality even during a short stay. Alternatively, perhaps a trip to the Erkel, a sister venue. There are myriad theatres across the city, offering performances of classic and contemporary works. There are opportunities for wine-tasting, not just at wine festivals but at wine dinners as well, where a range of Hungarian wines can be tasted with a variety of accompanying dishes. There are museums, studios selling traditional handicrafts (for example, brightly coloured felt designer hats). There are classical music concerts at venues across the city, usually well advertised.
