BUDAPEST

The capital of Hungary, known as the “Pearl of the Danube”, is undoubtedly one of the most beautifully located cities in the world. The river Danube runs through the middle of the metropolis of two million, dividing hilly Buda with its narrow cobbled streets and mixture of medieval and neo-classical buildings from the Pest plain with its wide avenues and boulevards. Because of the picturesque panorama offered by the river and its bridges, the Parliament, the imposing Royal Castle, Fishermen’s Bastion and the impressive Danube Embankment, UNESCO placed this site on the World Heritage list.

The guests will find side by side the remains of fortresses and buildings from Roman times, still operating Turkish baths, Gothic and Baroque buildings, and the incredibly rich Art Nouveau architectural heritage. There is no other capital city in the world with close to 100 thermal springs and 12 medicinal baths within its boundaries, where 19 million gallons of thermal water rise to the surface every day. It is a city where the pleasing harmony of different architectural styles and superb structures, cafés, gastronomy and culture are combined with legendary hospitality and blend into an unforgettable experience for visitors.
