Budapest, the capital city of Hungary

Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and also its largest city. The city is divided in two parts by the Danube River. The left bank is called Buda whereas the right bank is called Pest. Many European roads and railway lines lead to Budapest, which makes it an important city in terms of traffic exchange. Budapest is generally not our first choice destination when we are thinking holidays. Contrary to what most of us think, Budapest is an exciting city which can without doubt match the other capitals of Europe. With its architectural wealth, global flair, rich culture and spas, Budapest is a booming metropolis.

An interesting fact about Budapest is that is the only capital city in the world which has thermal springs. Indeed approximately 125 springs produce 70 million litres of thermal water a day. The thermal springs are known to have medicinal effects due to their valuable mineral contents.

Discover the Buda castle district, one of the most romantic parts of the city located in the ancient town, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Don’t miss the Trinity Square, dominated by one of Budapest’s most characteristic building, the Mathias Church, which is over 700 years old. Have a stroll along the Danube embankments stretching from the Liberty Bridge to the Margaret Bridge where you will find the Gellért Bath, the Gellért Hill with the Statue of Liberty and the Citadel, the Castle of Buda, the Baroque churches and Turkish baths, which are all World Heritage sites.

On the Pest bank of the Danube River, you will discover the Parliament building, the Roosevelt Square and the Academy of Sciences. Not far from the Parliament building, is the biggest church of Budapest, Saint Stephen’s Basilica.

Discover the Heroes’ Square, the biggest and most impressive square of Budapest. In the middle stands the Millenium Monument, with Archangel Gabriel on top. Behind Heroes’ Square, the City Park Lake is perfect for boating in the summer, and ice-skating in the wintertime.

Have a break in one of the old atmospheric cafés of Budapest and taste a Dobos cake or a Somló sponge cake (Somlói galuska).

Go to the Grand Boulevard (Nagykörút) and the Central Market Hall. You will find individual shops, with small to mid-sized floor space on the Grand Boulevard. The Central Market is a huge structure where you can buy fresh food as well as Hungarian art items.

Customer reviews

  • "Good train poor customer servi"    
    I was on the train from Budapest to Vienna in the café car. The train stopped short. My glasses went flying. I lost them. Since then I have called and emailed customer service. On 8 January I received an email asking for a picture of them. I sent it that day. I have not heard anything further and would very much like those glasses back. Other than this issue, the ride was pleasant and efficient.  
  • "Internet connection"    
    The wifi was not working properly, the connection was not so good because i only had connection for about half an hour, and I was not able to use the brwoser, just a few apps were able to actually coonect to the internet. You shoul review your wifi service. Best regards, Danilo Souza  
  • "From Vienna to Budapest"    
    The train was clean, the trip followed the previewed schedule, but the boarding was not organized (the information on the tickets wasn't precise, so we and other people boarded on the wrong vagon), so the train began to move with many people stood up. There was little space to acomodate the luggage of all passengers and many cases were put on the corridors and between the seats, making very difficult to walk during the trip. There were two different train stations in Budapest, but this information wasn't available by the time of booking, so we droped off the train at a bigger distance than we imagined, forcing us to take an alternative transport to the hotel.  
  • "First Eurorail Travel"    
    It was my first travel by eurorail. everything was fine.  
  • "Excellent Trip"    
    As planned and enjoyed the journey... Train was comforatable and food excellent  
  • "71 year old couple"    
    The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!  
  • "Budapest-Viena"    
    The trains station of BUDAPEST KELENFOE it is so poor, needs an extensive reform.  
  • "Awesome"    
    Punctual, comfort  
  • "Absolutely recommended !!"    
    Fantastic Voyage! Fast and comfortable trains. Good prices and punctuality  
  • " Value for money"    
    We enjoyed tris travel  
  • "Traveling Vienna-Budapest"    
    The travel was almost perfect, train arrived about 15 minutes late but everything else was without a hitch. The seats and accomodation space was great, the train travelled fast and it was a very nice experience.  
  • "Austria Travel"    
    Great way to travel within Austria and perfect for Vienna City connections.  
  • "Great train ride"    
    Our experience on the Railjet from Vienna to Budapest. We had reserved seats which were reasonably comfortable. There was Wifi and electrical power, a waitress taking orders for snacks and drinks, and even a complimentary Twix bar when we embarked. The only negative was after our arrival in the Budapest station when we were greeted by a dishonest taxi driver who seemed to be aware that Americans might be confused by the currency and wanted 18,000 forints for a one mile ride to our hotel, about $90. He told us this when he stopped for us to get cash from an ATM a block from the station. When I returned from the ATM, I took our suitcases from the trunk and my family and I walked back to the station where customer service got us a driver for a flat fee of 1800 forints. The dishonest driver seemed to have rigged his meter which had gone from 300 to more than 3000 in a block. In short, enjoy the train ride, but beware of taxi drivers in Budapest.  
  • "Budapest Wien"    
    Fantastic trip  
  • "fine"    
    The trip was fine although the train was very full at the beginning. Later it became more comfortable. Booking the tickets on the net was a little difficult and the English of the site was rather poor. It would help people to find what they need if you asked a native speaker to correct it. Also, it'd be easier and cheaper if the tickets were sent electronically instead of having to pay for the expensive postage. But the service was very good and I appreciated that someone came up to chat on the net when I was having difficulties in booking. Thank you, Csilla Bertha
