Budapest - Belvaros (Chapter)
This is the Belvaros chapter from Lonely Planet’s Budapest guidebook.
The ‘Inner Town’ is just that – the centre of Pest tourism. You’ll find Vaci utca, with its luxury shops, restaurants and bars, and Vörösmarty ter, home to Budapest’s most celebrated cukraszda (cake shop). All three metro lines converge here too.
- stroll up (or down) Vaci utca, the nerve centre of Budapest tourism and take in all that entails: unusual architecture, some fine shops, the odd eatery worth consideration and crowds of people
- savour a cup of something warm and a slice of something sweet at Gerbeaud, Budapest’s finest cukraszda (cake shop)
- restaurants & bars
- catch a play in English at the Merlin Theatre or – for the brave – in Hungarian at the Jozsef Katona Theatre
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping and Shopping.
