Budapest may not boast the Gothic buildings of Prague, but it offers many unique examples of Baroque, Neo-Classical and Art Nouveau architecture of the Hungarian 'Golden Age'. Split by the mighty Danube, the city looks best at sunset. A stroll along the riverbanks is a perfect way to soak up the romantic atmosphere. Budapest is really two cities in one - the romantic 'Buda' hillside with its castle and churches and the Pest side full of majestic buildings, museums and theatres.
A flourishing of the arts and the re-establishment of fine restaurants and shops all bear witness to Budapest's re-emergence as a city of culture and style. Hungarian wines are no longer viewed as inferior to their European relatives, nor their spas grim sanatoriums. Come and discover a city with not only a rich past but also a flourishing future.
