The City Park houses many of the city center's most popular sites such as the Zoo, the Outdoor Ice Rink, the Heroes' Square, the Museum of Fine Arts, Széchenyi Spa and the Circus.

With a beautiful lake at its center, it's the perfect spot for a romantic boat ride during the summer or an ice skating adventure with your significant other during the winter. The lake surrounds a medieval castle that is a true site to behold in and of itself.

Budapest has always been a hub of Jewish culture, so it comes as no surprise that the second largest synagogue of the world is found here. This complex is not only a place of worship, but also hosts the Hungarian Jewish Museum. It lies in Dohány street, right off the Small Boulevard, as an entrance to the Jewish district. Dohány street carries serious Holocaust connotations, it was the border of the Budapest Ghetto during WWII and even today still remains the center of the Jewish community in Hungary.

The mile-long Király Street is flourishing and buzzing with activity. This street is of historical significance and is perpendicular to Kazinczy Street. It's also one of the entrances to the passage known as Gozsdu Udvar, which feels like an entirely separate hub of the city. In addition to the shops, hostels, restaurants, bars, bistros, and teahouses, the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music also help to shape the street's cultural character. In the winter months, Király Street is defined by the Christmas lights and the smell of roasted chestnuts. From spring, it's the territory of tourists and locals in search of fun spots for a day or night out.

Unfortunately, very little has remained from the former glory of the Buda Castle as a royal palace, which was to host the monarchs and leaders of the Austria-Hungary empire until 1944. Currently the buildings of the Buda Castle host outstanding collections of some of the finest Budapest attractions. The courtyards, on the other hand, give venue to one of the best festivals in Budapest (wine festival, beer festival, chocolate festival, crafts festival, you name it).

The main façade of the Fisherman’s Bastion, running parallel to the Danube, is approximately 140 metres long. The seven stone towers with their pointed tops symbolise the leaders of the Hungarian tribes who conquered the country in 896. It was built in place of the old fortification walls in neo-Romanesque style between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek, who was also in charge of the reconstruction of the Mathias Church. The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages.

It's not an easy place to spot, but look for clubbers heading behind its wooden gates and you'll soon find the party. There's table tennis and foosball, live concerts, and a DJ spinning electronic music. Kuplung is also an ideal place for a coffee when strolling on Király Street, Budapest's Design Street.

The High Note Sky Bar sits atop the Aria Hotel next to the Basilica. It offers expensive, but excellent drinks, and a stunning view of the Basilica itself. We of course here at Street & River would rather have you stay with us, but we have to recommend the rather tasty drinks and views of the High Note Sky Bar.

Among the trendy restaurants of Liszt Ferenc Square, you can find Menza, a vintage place where the tablecloths are still striped and the chicken soup is still rich in meat. However, apart from letcho, you can find all modern options on the menu - even hamburgers. Supposedly, they invented the idea of serving all the vegetables, extra meat and dumplings in a separate bowl, and then they pour the soup on it from something that looks like a teapot. It’s definitely worth to drop by for a lunch menu, and for a nice cocktail outside on the terrace on a lovely summer day.

It is an scene of Hungarian literary life, the meeting point of tourists and art enthusiasts, and the stronghold of refined gastronomy. The café that was once chosen as the most beautiful in the world is found on the ground floor of Boscolo Hotel Budapest, in the buzzing downtown. If you yearn for a touch of the aristocratic vibes, drop in for a coffee and immerse yourself into an authentic 19th century coffee experience in a scenery of gilded and marble surfaces ornamented with wood and crystal. A majestic spot with authentic traditions.

Gerbeaud, one of Vörösmarty tér’s (Vörösmarty Square) emblematic venues, is arguably the most famous confectionery and coffee house in Budapest, which also belongs to the cream of the crop in Europe, and has been operating a unit in Tokyo since 2009. The inmeasurable experience of a 164-year-long history determines Gerbeaud’s enviable selection, which is basically an exhibition of confectionery art. The interior is dominated by three materials – marble, gold, and wood -, and recalls the atmosphere of early 20th century Budapest, when once-in-a-generation poets and writers were café-hopping all day long.

Kőleves, situated on the ruin pub-heavy Kazinczy Street, looks and tastes like a dime-a-dozen restaurant, but right behind mediocrity there's a true downtown treasure, a chilled open-air nook called Kőleves Garden. During the warmer months, university students and romancing couples frequent this silent shelter, where you can sit down on one of the colorful chairs or the swings swaying at the counter, though the tiny pebbles covering the ground might sneak into your slippers.

Another excellent typical restaurant, with giant portions! Every kind of meat. The only flaws are the cakes, giant but not good. Obligatory booking, it's in front of Városliget, the public city park, near the wonderful Hero's Square. Hungarian wines are good. Metro stops: Hősök tere (M1), Széchenyi fürdő (M1), but the Keleti central station (M2, M4) is not far.

Centrál Kávéház (Centrál Café), located in downtown Budapest, a corner away from Erzsébet híd (Elizabeth Bridge) and Váci utca (Váci Street), was founded in 1887, and served as an intellectual citadel frequented by the sharpest literary minds and the most iconic actors and actresses of the early 1900s. After WW II had ended, misfortune descended upon Centrál, which process culminated in the 1990s, when Centrál’s premises gave home to an arcade. The revival of the original concept began in 1999: the historic interior was restored with all its paintings, chandeliers, and wooden furniture-masterpieces, although the lack of literary geniuses is hard to compensate.

Located in the most lively area of Budapest, this restaurant has a beautiful and romantic decoration. We recommend you their lemonades (so tasty). They change really often their decoration and always have fresh flowers. When the weather is nice, you can enjoy their beautiful terrace. You need to make a reservation before going there!

At Zoo Café, you can be a child again. As for the drinks and the food, the place cannot boast of anything special, but the focus is elsewhere anyway. Be warned: you'll also find yourself kneeling under your table, babbling to animals.
