The Central Hungary/Danube region
The City, known as the Paris of the East, comprises the two regions of Buda (on the West of the Danube) and Pest (on the East of the Danube). Buda is the older, medieval area whereas Pest is the newer district, mostly built in the 19th century.
Hungary has an amazing history and a unique culture. Its continental location means that it can get pretty chilly in the winter and very hot in the summer.
There are literally hundreds of wonderful things to do in Budapest. In fact every time we go we come back with a list of things to do next on our next visit!
Although walking around the City is an absolute pleasure, we would suggest that on your first day you take a tour of the City (buses leave from Andrassy, about 3 minutes' walk from the apartment), which will allow you to get a feel for the layout of the City in order that you can plan your itinerary. From there you can choose to visit the wonderful National Museum or the chilling but essential Terror Museum, catch a concert at the Opera House (or at any other of the many music halls that are dotted around the City) take a boat trip up the Danube, walk around the Castle District, relax at the Gellert or Szechenyi baths or rub shoulders with the glitterati at Gundel, said to be the finest restaurant in Eastern Europe.
In Summer, you can catch a boat to Margrit Island on the Danube where you can sunbathe and swim in the heat . In the evening, all the restaurants on Franz Liszt Terrace open their doors and spill out onto the pavement from where you can enjoy a glass of delicious Hungarian wine and a spot of people watching. In Winter, Budapest is glorious; the tree-lined Andrassy avenue is lit up with fairy lights and Vorosmarty terrace plays host to a Christmas market where you can stop for a warming glass of Gluwein before embarking on a shopping spree on Vaci Utca.
Don't miss out on the Budapest Spring Festival- from 14- 30 March 2008: http://www.budapestspringfestival.com/
