The glittering Budapest skyline is enough to take the breath away, and a walk around the streets reveals a dazzling and vibrant city populated with buildings that range from the elegant to the majestic. In Budapest culture begins with the architecture and within these buildings there are many cultural gems waiting to be discovered.
To make the most out of a stay in this city finding a high-quality Budapest hotel
is essential. The Park Inn by Radisson, Budapest is the perfect place to enjoy the culture of the Hungarian capital.
The river-split city
Budapest is divided into two halves – Buda and Pest – by the Danube River and both have their own distinctive characters. Each of the areas represents a different take on Budapest’s culture, from the castle, museums and historic buildings of Buda, to the vibrant and energetic arts scene of Pest.
Spending some time in each half of the city is a must for any visitor to Budapest. Buda is home to not only the castle but also the National Gallery and Budapest History Museum. Pest houses the Museum of Applied Arts, the Opera House and the Museum of Terror. They are all highlights of Budapest’s culture and well worth a visit.
Fun and festivals
Budapest hosts numerous festivals throughout the year and timing a trip to coincide with one of them offers visitors a great way to see the city in a different light. With nearby public transport links putting central Budapest within easy reach, the Park Inn by Radisson, Budapest is a great starting point for any cultural excursion.
From the world-class culture of the Budapest Spring Festival in March, to the high-octane excitement of the Hungarian Grand Prix
in July, the Hungarian capital has something to offer every cultural palate.
