The city that lives a double life

The Buda and the Pest sides not only give Hungary’s capital its name, but also define the varied lifestyles and character on each side.
Hungary's capital is a tale of two cities, split by the Danube river. The Buda and the Pest sides not only give the city its name, but also define its different lifestyles and personalities.
"Pest is very fast, as most of the things happen there. There [are] a lot of bars, restaurants, meeting points, but also many companies have their offices on this side of the river," explained Wiktoria Skiba, originally from Poland and founder of Budapest blog The Spoiled Queen.
"Buda is much calmer, surrounded by beautiful hills. You can find a lot of green areas there, and the air is fresher than on the Pest side." >>

As Christmas draws closer, the aroma of mulled wine and cinnamon perfume the streets of Budapest. Stands of Sekler cakes, also known kürtöskalács in Hungarian, pop up on numerous street corners, rotating the cylindrical dough above a coal fire until the sugar crust blisters and they are cooled and rolled in cocoa powder, walnuts or ground cinnamon. Wooden stalls occupy virtually every public space, selling mulled wine spiced with cloves, cinnamon and fruit, or handcrafted gifts from local designers. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Hungarian capital comes to life with the festive spirit. >>

Budapest: A Hungarian rhapsody

The European city will make you fall in love again, especially as you cruise along the Danube

I fell in love… again.
After all when you are cruising on the enchanting Danube River past centuries-old monuments lit up in golden hues and you have a trio of musicians serenading you with the beautiful Danube Waltz, even the most hardened of souls can soften.
Like it did with me.
The Danube which originates in Germany and passes through European capitals such as Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade has captivated writers, musicians and artists through the centuries.
And as we took a dinner cruise on the lilting waters one dark, romantic night in Budapest, we could see why.

The sight of the beautifully lit up Chain Bridge, Parliament Building, Fishermen’s Bastion and the 13th Century Matthias Church on either side of the river, as lilting melodies of the land come wafting in from a passing ship or two, was a memorable experience indeed.
Lined with charming red-roofed villages, steeply terraced vineyards, picturesque churches and the crumbling ruins of medieval castles, the Danube River offers a breath-taking panorama of the city.
As Europe’s second-longest river snakes through the heart of Budapest, it bisects the city into the hilly, old-world Buda district on one side and the more modern — but equally beautiful — Pest on the other. The magnificent Chain Bridge — built in 1849 — connects these two districts.
A walk on the bridge with its hundreds of odes to love in the form of love padlocks locked on the bridge by tourists and locals will make you want to believe in love again. An added bonus are the lovely views of the contrasting sights on both sides of the bank.
At once modern and historic, the city retains an old-world charm. While Pest is lively and pretty, Buda takes you back in time with its rich history and magnificent monuments.
Out of Hungary’s eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, three are in the capital, including the Banks of the Danube area which includes the must-see Gellért Hill, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue.
The best seat in the house to view the sheer magnificence of the city has to be Gellért Hill. The world heritage site offers unparalleled views of Budapest — it’s almost like a map of the city spread before you. The famous Hotel Gellért and the Gellért Baths can be found in Gellért Square at the foot of the hill.
Exploring the city is a tourist’s delight. Grab a map and have fun as you try to connect the public transport dots that take you around virtually every place worth visiting. The public transport system is fantastic (and cheap) and a one-day (or three-day) pass, which allows unlimited travel across the network of metro, trams, buses, will take you places — literally.
The network connects some of Budapest’s most iconic sights including Parliament Building, Chain Bridge, St Stephen’s Basilica, Elizabeth Square, Hungarian State Opera House, Central Market Hall, among others. >>
