Budapest - Parliament & Around (Chapter)
This is the Parliament & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Budapest guidebook.
Just north of Inner Town is Lipotvaros (Leopold Town), with landmark Parliament westwards and the iconic Basilica of St Stephen eastwards. There’s part of Terezvaros (Teresa Town), after Empress Maria Theresa. Nagymező utca is Budapest’s nightlife centre.
- enter the hallowed halls of the Parliament, arguably the most iconic of all Budapest’s buildings, and make your way to the Crown of St Stephen, symbol of the Hungarian nation for over 1100 years
- do the right thing by visiting the Basilica of St Stephen and Hungary’s most revered religious relic, the Holy Right (hand) of St Stephen
- restaurants & bars
- carouse in and around Nagymező utca, Budapest’s own ‘Broadway’ and home to a plethora of wild and crazy clubs, including Instant.
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping and Shopping.
