“The Parliament of Hungary is the world's third largest Parliament building, The Parliament building, a magnificent example of Neo-Gothic architecture (although displaying Renaissance and Baroque characters too), is just over 100 years old. In the 1880's an open tender was held for the design of the Parliament building. Construction based on the winning plan began in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of Hungary in 1896, and fully completed in 1902. Both runner-up designs were also built facing the Parliament building. ”
“The Great Market Hall or Nagyvásárcsarnok is the largest and oldest indoor market in Budapest. Despite the dozens and dozens of tourists with their cameras out, this place is a favourite with locals and the best place to come to get fresh produce, Hungarian specialities, a quick meal or a sweet treat.”
“Budapest's stunning Great Synagogue is the world's largest Jewish house of worship outside New York City. Built in 1859, the synagogue has both Romantic and Moorish architectural elements. Inside, the Hungarian Jewish Museum & Archives contains objects relating to both religious and everyday life.”
“Margaret Island is a central parkland that is popular with locals and tourists. There are many eclectic things to do, so whatever the weather, there’s a reason to head to this little island. From here you’ll see the grandeur of the Hungarian Parliament building on one side (particularly special when lit up at night) and the ornate Buda Castle and Mathias Church on the right. You can aslo Swim at the Olympic swimming pool, Climb to the top of the water tower, Watch the musical fountain, Ride a selection of fun vehicles and Eat a lángos as you explore the park. ”
“Ask pretty much anyone what they recommend you do in Budapest and they’ll likely suggest a night out at Szimpla Kert. The iconic party place is undoubtedly the city’s most famous nightspot, and has inspired wave after wave of “ruin pubs” that have popped up in the years since it opened. We sat down with one of the owners, Ábel Zsendovits, to talk about the role Szimpla has played in Budapest becoming one of Europe’s top tourist destinations, particularly among young people. While you might think he’s too busy running his Szimpla empire to have a lemonade with us, he was generous with his time. Location: H-1075 Budapest, Kazinczy u. 14 ”
