Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In a stunning location, high above the embankment, this apartment offers uninterrupted views across to the Citadel and to the Liberty Monument, with panoramic views up and down Danube. The modern apartment interior sits comfortably inside the traditional 19 Century house, offering a unique blend of old and new, against a backdrop of the ever-changing river scene illuminated at night by passing rivercraft. Renovated and furnished with an eye to detail, the mood of the apartment varies with the seasons, the time of day. A place to relax, to think, to refresh, to recharge, to enjoy. The open-plan living and kitchen areas are split-level, offering a perspective on the river not just at the windows, but from elsewhere within the apartment too, including from the breakfast bar in the kitchen. Celebrate a special occasion, in style, whether as a couple or in a small group of four sharing.

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 spectacular performances (including ballet) all year-round. With a little advance planning for Premiéres, and sometimes at the last minure 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.
