Visited on Monday 9th October. We were visiting the Parliament Building and this magnificent building is the other side of the Square at the back/front of the Parliament Building.

Located across the gorgeous Hungarian Parliament, the Ethnographic Museum is housed in a beautiful neo-classical building dating back to the late XIX century. If you think the outside is pretty, walk in and enjoy the magnificent interior. The Baroque stone carvings, the frescoes, the staircases,...More

There were a choice of two exhibitions. The temporary exhibition showcased photographs. Fairly meaningless and without context most of the time. We took the permanent exhibition which we found to be fantastically informative with excellent artefacts and well worth spending 90 minutes exploring the lifestyles...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
