    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
