There is so much to discover that you can visit the city as many times as you like and always find something new to delight and interest you.
The best thing about the churches and synagogues you can find around Budapest is the care with which they are looked after and preserved. You can find in these buildings the very life blood of the city, and this is something that every traveller to Budapest can and should make the most of.
From delectable strudels to fine Hungarian dining in opulent surroundings to improbable fusions of Italian and Jewish cooking, Budapest will tempt every palate. The city's famous "Ruin bars", spas and clubs are just some of a thousand places to relax or have fun.
