One of the world’s most beautiful cities and often described as the ‘Paris of the East’, Budapest is at the centre of Hungary’s cultural, political, intellectual and commercial life. A luxury Hungary holiday with Elegant Resorts means two cities for the price of one, on either side of the River Danube. The symbolic Chain Bridge links the colourful hills of conservative Buda with the wide boulevards of Pest.
Buda is famed for its monuments and thermal baths whilst Pest is the entertainment hub of the city, with its superb choice of restaurants and shops. Stroll along the medieval cobblestone streets of the Old Town, dotted with attractive courtyards and stop for a coffee or tea in one of the many cafés or pay a visit to one of the renowned thermal baths. Alternatively, visit the Central Market Hall, an enormous marketplace where you can buy just about anything – from table linens to Russian caviar.
