History & Sights

When traveling to Budapest, one realizes how important the history of this place is. Many different and great cultures have passed through the region. The Romans were the first to build streets, amphitheaters and baths, as well as the first houses with heated floors. If there is one thing they should be proud of, it is Aquincum. The best preserved ancient Roman archeological site, which today is used as an open museum of the city. The Hungarians first settled in the city at the end of the 9th century and founded the Kingdom of Hungary. In 1361 the city was declared the capital and the Buddha played a key role in cultural development.

The jewel of the Danube

In Budapest, in addition to the picturesque streets, large shopping malls and luxury hotels, visitors will have the opportunity to experience a wide range of attractions. First stop, the building of the National Parliament. It is the largest building in the country, located on the shores of Pest and houses the jewels of the royal crown. A unique attraction, too, is the basilica of St. Stephen, founder of Hungary, which rises to 96 meters and together with the Parliament are the two tallest buildings in the city. Next, we must highlight the countless small and large cafes in the city. A typical focal point is the Zerbo cafe. It is the most famous and popular patisserie in Budapest and is located in Pest in Veresmorty Square. It is built in Art Nouveau architecture and its decoration and aura will captivate you.
