There is no doubt about the fact this is the one of the most beautiful building all around the world. Exceptional architecture and style. Budapest's symbol and also one of the most famous Hungarian architect.

We booked our tour several weeks before our visit and lot of tours were sold out so you need to plan in advance. We chose Russian language and our guide was perfect! We really enjoyed it. Only one minus - whole tour was just about 30 minutes and I think it could be much longer.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
