Budapest is the perfect destination for those looking for a city break holiday that strikes the balance between old and new. The city is literally split in two by the Danube River, with the hilly Buda to the west and the bustling Pest to the east. In Buda, visitors can explore the hilltop castle and fortress, and admire the stunning panoramic views. Over in Pest, the Jewish Quarter is home to the poignant Shoes on the Danube memorial and the quirky ruin bars, such as the iconic Szimplakert. Meanwhile, the grand-and-Gothic parliament building and the enlightening House of Terror museum are reminders of the city's rich history. Budapest is also known as the City of Spas, thanks to its collection of thermal springs, from the Art Deco Gellert Baths to the Ottoman-era Kiraly Baths and the Szechenyi. Whether you're looking for a cultural experience or a night out on the town, Budapest has something for everyone.
