People come to Budapest because of its impressive architecture, rich history and culture, vibrant nightlife, popular bathhouses and hearty cuisine. The Romans, Hungarians, Turks, Austrians and Soviets all have influenced Hungary’s largest city, which makes Budapest an architectural treasure with baroque, neoclassical, eclectic and art nouveau touches. The city is split into two districts by the Danube River, where Buda is full of historical landmarks and has an aristocratic vibe and Pest is more youthful and cosmopolitan with its array of entertainment venues. Climb up to Gellert Hill for best panoramic views of the river and the city, especially at night when all its bridges are lit up. Parliament Building, Hungarian National Gallery and Hungarian State Opera are among the national treasures that are open to the visitors. Dohany Street Synagogue -Europe's largest- and its in-house museum can also be visited with tours organised by the local Jewish community. There is a great deal more to see around the city as well. Thermal resorts of Balaton Lake; the artistic town of Szentendre wtih its small museums and galleries; the fascinating castle city of Visegrad and the winemakers' village of St. Andrea are among the spots that you could easily explore with day trips from Budapest.
