While Hungary is well-known for its beautiful landscapes and scenery, it is the architecture throughout the many towns and cities that is legendary. Thanks to the nation's former power in the early part of the 2nd millennium AD, and its previous position as part of the mighty Austro-Hungarian empire, Hungary is a Mecca for historical building lovers, with medieval castles, baroque churches, neo-classical townhouses, and art nouveau schools and public baths around every corner. And it is not just in Budapest, but in almost every settlement in the land where these treasures can be found. For example, Szeged hides the Reök Palace, Pécs features its delightful Mosque Church and Köszeg has the unforgettable Jurisics tér. Hungary is also regaining the reputation it once had as a centre for gastronomy. Gone are the days of communism and goulash, and Hungarian cuisine is now emerging as one of the most sophisticated in Europe, helped on its way by the country's amazing reputation for wine-making.
The City of Budapest - Bestriding the mighty Danube River, Hungary's capital city is sometimes known as the city of spas, as 15 million gallons of naturally heated water bubble through 118 springs and boreholes. This water is captured and fed to an astonishing collection of spas and bathhouses, such as the 16th century Turkish pools and the huge 1913 Szechenyl Spa. Besides water, the city is filled buildings, monuments and relics from its long history that stretches back well over a thousand years, including Roman remains at the Aquincum Museum, Saint Stephen's Basilica, the Hungarian Parliament Building, the Nagytétény Castle Museum and the Royal Palace otherwise known as Buda Castle. There are more than 220 museums spread throughout Budapest, along with an emerging café culture that includes the Gerbeaud Café, the Biarritz, the Fortuna and the world famous Mátyás Pince Restaurants, to name just a few. All of which are amongst the most elegant places to have a coffee or a spot of lunch. In the night, Budapest is lit up astonishingly and takes on an entirely different character, including a vibrant nightlife made up from jumping bars and clubs, and a noticeably heady atmosphere.
