Budapest is a city full of monuments and places to discover from your base in a hotel such as Barceló Budapest. Unknown to some, Budapest is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world. The streets reflect over a thousand years of history in surprisingly beautiful architecture of many different styles, and the city is home to several World Heritage Sites.
As you walk around you will discover two cities that are really one: the historical Buda and the modern Pest. Budapest is also famous for healing thermal waters and ancient hot springs.
The most well-known image of Budapest is Buda Castle, also known as the Royal Palace. In addition to the castle, Castle Hill is the ideal place to explore and get lost in the many narrow streets. Next to the castle, you will find another of the city's picturesque attractions, the Chain Bridge. This link between the cities of Buda and Pest is the oldest bridge in Budapest and offers stunning views of the city at nightfall.
To discover one of the most iconic squares, you need to head to Heroes’ Square, which, together with Andrássy Avenue, forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
