Budapest is actually the union of the twin towns of Buda and Pest, which are separated by the Danube River. You can wander through the old town of Buda, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, enjoying the fabulously preserved architecture and stunning views. The Hungarian Parliament Building is Europe’s largest and an architectural treat, as is the Royal Palace. Culture lovers will find plenty to delight them in the comprehensive National Museum. But Budapest is a modern city too and has a lively nightlife with restaurants, bars and clubs catering to the party crowd, particularly on the Pest side of the river.
Typical food and drink in Hungary
By far the best known Hungarian dish is the famous Goulash. This is a hearty beef stew that gets its dominant flavour from plenty of rich smoky paprika that gives it a delightful richness and delicate spiciness. It’s a must try.
