The huge city of Budapest has been a magnet for tourists and visitors for centuries. Book a flight to Budapest with Qatar Airways and you’ll quickly discover why this unique city has become such a huge tourist destination once again in recent years.
The city is effectively divided in half by the Danube and is made up of three distinct areas - Buda, which lies to the west of the river, the Castle Hill area, which lies within Buda and is home to the castle and a number of other ancient sites, and Pest, which sits on the eastern bank of the river. Known as the ‘Paris of the East’, Budapest is a lively, youthful and vibrant city with a more traditional undertone that makes it a truly fascinating destination to visit.
On Castle Hill the main attraction has to be the towering presence of the Royal Palace. Overlooking the city and with fantastic views of both sides of the river, a palace has stood on the site since the 14th century. Today it is home to the National Gallery. Also on Castle Hill you’ll find the seven towers of the Fisherman’s Bastion, and the beautiful bronze statues of Hunyadi Garden.
Over in Buda you’ll discover everything from the Roman remains of Aquincum in the Óbuda district, which is now an open air museum, to a cluster of smaller museums (most of the major museums are in the Castle Hill area). More unusual attractions are also worth a visit, such as the cave network of Gellért hill.
Dominating Pest is the Parliament building, a truly breathtaking architectural marvel that is worth a visit to the city in its own right. The only way to see inside is to take a guided tour (tours do not take place during parliament sittings), but it is well worth booking a place to see one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the whole of Europe.
