This enormous cultural building along the Danube's bank is the most important work of architecture in Budapest so far in the 21st century. The warm limestone exterior encloses oversized window panes that permit plenty of light. Inside, note the gracious transition of materials: from wood to metal…
“The National Theatre is a beautiful and unique building next to the Danube. A visit is worth, and make a walk along the danube to the 'Whale' conference center.”
“Great place for a walk, for lunch or dinner, many restaurants to choose from, lovely areas for sunbathing.”
“Concert Hall Boat on the Danube. Winner of several prizes, such as Lonely Planet World’s 100 Greatest Bar, 2012. ”
“The Great Market Hall in central Budapest is Budapest’s most famous marketplace. Whilst many locals still use the market hall as a place to buy their groceries, the market is incredibly popular with the tourists too. Locally grown fruits and veg, and locally sourced meats are found on the lower floors, and souvenirs including lace, chess sets and leather goods are available in the upper floors. As well as individual ingredients, it is possible to pick up homemade local delicacies like goulash and langos from the food stall upstairs.”
“Margaret Island is a 2.5 km long island, 500 metres wide, in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest, Hungary. The island is mostly covered by landscape parks, and is a popular recreational area. Its medieval ruins are reminders of its importance in the Middle Ages as a religious centre. The island spans the area between the Margaret Bridge and the Árpád Bridge. Before the 14th century the island was called Insula leporum. Administratively Margaret Island used to belong to the 13th district, but now is directly under the control of the city. Its appearance today was developed through the connection of three separate islands, the Festő, the Fürdő and the Nyulak, during the end of the 19th century, to control the flow of the Danube. Originally, the island was 102.5 metres above sea level, but now has been built up to 104.85 metres above sea level to control flooding.”
