    To the west, the Buda Hills with the medieval Buda Castle and the breath-taking terrace Fisherman’s Bastion. To the east, a Parliament building known worldwide for its beauty and the Heroes’ Square, which tells us more than a millennium of history. In between, the famous Danube River.

    However, the city is not divided in two. In both sides there’s a youthful atmosphere, as it can be seen in its nightlife and events. It also has the world’s largest thermal water cave system, which results in an exceptional offer of natural thermal baths that every visitor must try. Many of the buildings were inspired by the Viennese and Parisian architecture, giving a fin-de-siècle feel to it.

    Budapest is definitely an enjoyable city, and with Farol City Guides, you’ll enjoy it to its fullest.

    Buda Castle

    Imposing and historical castle and residence of the Hungarian kings. Declared a World Heritage Site, it has more to see than the castle itself, such as medieval and baroque 19th century houses and churches.

    Fisherman’s Bastion

    This stunning terrace provides a terrific panoramic view over the city. It was built around one century ago, to commemorate the fishermen who protected Buda during the medieval era.

    The Parliament

    The Hungarian Parliament will blow you away with its beauty and grace, both on the outside and the inside. It’s one of the oldest European legislative buildings and a notable landmark of the country.

    Chain Bridge

    This is the first permanent bridge connecting Buda and Pest, making it one of the most symbolic bridges of the city. Cross this bridge by foot and stop for a minute to appreciate the Danube River.

    Hungarikum Bistro

    Beyond excellent, this is the restaurant to go if you want to explore the best and the most traditional Hungarian food and wine. With a charming decoration and comfy food, it’ll feel like home.

    Zona

    Delicious haute cuisine on a restaurant with a great view and a modern decoration. The dishes are well prepared and the staff will welcome you with the best professionalism. Reservations advised.

    Firkász

    There is no place to be like the one where locals go to eat, and this is where they go to have typical national food. The decoration is inspired in journalism, the former career of those who set it up.

    Kárpátia

    Here elegance and tradition go hand in hand. Its decoration will make you feel like you’ve started a journey through a fantasy book, but in fact, you’ll start a journey through good Hungarian food.

    Thermal Baths

    Budapest is also named as “the city of Spas” because it has more thermal water springs than any other capital city in the world. This popular practice is a true local experience that you cannot miss.

    The Danube

    One of the elements that make this city so splendid is the second longest river in Europe. You can take a river cruise to admire Budapest while listening to its trivia and history, by day or by night.

    Töltött káposzta

    A great way to experience a culture is through its cuisine. In Budapest you’ll find tradition in how meat stews, rice and potatoes are cooked, but one emblematic dish is this cabbage roll. Give it a try.

    Hungarian Folk

    The Hungarian Folk music and dance performances are authentic and worth seeing. Its dance elements date back centuries and its choreographies are original. Try to watch a show, it will be the deal of your journey.
