• Luxury Budapest Holidays
  • Overview

    Beautiful and picturesque, Budapest entices visitors with its rich history, impressive architecture, UNESCO-listed attractions and countless thermal spas, plus a cultural scene that includes world-class festivals, museums, theatres and concert halls, excellent dining and a vibrant nightlife.

    Divided in two by the mighty Danube River, the Hungarian capital is formed of what was once two cites. Unified in 1873, charming Buda on the west bank and vibrant Pest on the east side each boasts its own distinct character and history. Numerous and distinct neighbourhoods include the charming Castle district, downtown Belvaros-Lipotvaros filled with some of the city’s major attractions and architectural gems, and bustling Terezvaros district with the elegant, UNESCO-listed Andrassy Avenue and the State Opera. Erzebetvaros, the Jewish Quarter, offers lively nightlife, ruin bars and the must-see Dohany Street Synagogue, whilst up-and-coming Jozsefvaros tempts with a bohemian feel and a myriad of stylish bars and restaurants.

    When to visit

    Mild weather and clear skies make spring and autumn ideal for a city break, summers are warm with average of 26C at the height of season, and winters are on the chilly side. There’s a fantastic choice of festivals and events throughout the year including the Spring Fair in Vorosmarty Square, the Budapest Summer Festival in July, Oktoberfest beer festival in the autumn and the traditional Christmas Markets will bring a festive cheer from mid November until the end of December.
