Hungary’s capital, Budapest, is a glorious city straddling the banks of the mighty River Danube. It’s a top choice for cultural visitors who want to be wowed by architectural gems, parks, ancient castles, steaming spas, art museums, classical opera and orchestral music from the city’s most famous composer, Franz Liszt. The UNESCO-listed heart of the city includes many noteworthy cultural attractions including Parliament Building, Buda Castle, St Stephen’s Basilica and the fairytale viewing platform at Fisherman’s Bastion.
