Budapest, Hungary

Budapest Hotels

Budapest is in every way the centrepiece of Hungary, serving not only as the political and transportation hub of the country, but also as its most important nexus of commerce, culture, music and industry. Cut cleanly in half by the Danube River, this city has a storied legacy that spans the rise and fall of many empires and political agendas. Entertainment here is a first-class affair. Prestigious operas are staged in the Opera House, with an impressive variety of classical music on the agenda throughout the year. Hungarians appreciate the formality of such affairs, and many of their festivals and public holidays draw locals and tourists alike to formal balls and lavish banquets.
