Whilst not overly cheap, prices starting around £3.50 for a breakfast, the food was excellent quality and the staff lovely. The coffee was delicious and the location was easy to access and not far from the central supermarket. Overall, would definitely recommend for breakfast and...More

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
