Budapest was originally two cities built on either side of the Danube, ‘Buda & Pest’ and were officially merged in 1873. Today, it is regarded as one metropolis, but the two districts are very distinct from one another, with many contrasting features and unique attractions.
Among the hills of the west bank, is the old & charming Buda district and is characterized by its old city features, colorful town house and the famous Castle Hill. To the East is the Pest district, Budapest’s commercial core, characterized by bustling shopping streets, leafy boulevards and the well known ‘Heroes square’. Having a short break in Budapest almost feels like visiting two cities in one weekend.
It is no wonder Budapest was recently voted by Conde Naste travelers readers the no.1 European city break destination.
