Lonely Planet's favorite Budapest quarters

August 29, 2017

The website of Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, has picked five Budapest neighborhoods as recommedned for those visiting the Hungarian capital - all of them districts in the downtown area along the river Danube.

The top five recommended places in Budapest are

Castle Hill in District I, ("With cobbled streets, Ottoman echoes and grand Habsburg palaces, there’s history in layers on Castle Hill. Alongside its medieval relics you’ll find the Hospital in the Rock, a subterranean hospital used in WWII and the 1956 Revolution.")

District V: Belváros & Lipótváros ("You can still see the stones from Pest’s old city wall surrounding District V, but today elegant residences and monuments like the Parliament and St Stephen’s Basilica populate the inner city.")

District VII: Erzsébetváros & the Jewish Quarter ("Juxtaposing its synagogues and echoes of its ghetto past against crumbling ruin bars, hedonistic party hostels and unique design shops, the Jewish Quarter perfectly blends Budapest’s complex history with its eclectic contemporary life.")

District VIII: Józsefváros ("the Italian-influenced architecture in Mikszáth Kálmán tér", the neoclassical Hungarian National Museum or the the Former Hungarian Radio Headquarters on Bródy Sándor utca.)

District IX: Ferencváros ("its cultural complex around the National Theatre, the Palace of Arts and the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art. It has earned the nickname ‘Craft Beer District’ for its density of bars with local beers on tap" as well as the Central Market Hall.)
