The spacious interior with modern grey mosaic tiles might make you wonder if you are in a spa and people wearing bathrobes might walk by any moment. The food was tasty and nicely presented; the Serrano platters - both with and without cheese - were...More

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
