A tale of three cities, Budapest was formed over 100 years ago with the unification of Buda, Obuda and Pest. It's considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and with its architectural delights its easy to see why. The capital is a leading global city and a financial hub. It's also home to lots of art galleries and museums, as well as natural hot springs and public spas. At the Castle District, stroll narrow winding streets and cobblestone alleyways to discover stunning Baroque buildings. Wander Castle Hill and visit the renowned Buda Castle. Take a walk to Fisherman's Bastion and gaze out across the city from a parapet of towers. Enjoy a gentle hike up Gellert Hill and be awarded with an endless view of Budapest. This district of old Buda contains lots of things to see and do and even more photo opportunities. Journey across the river from the Castle District and you'll come to the shores of the Belvaros area of old Pest. The most striking image of this region is the Hungarian Parliament Building, a Gothic construction that has to be seen to be believed. Belvaros, meaning the Inner Town, is a sophisticated place with Neoclassical buildings, fine restaurants and a lively nightlife. It's home to the designer stores of Fashion Street too.
