DESTINATION GUIDE: What fans can eat, see and do when they visit Budapest for the Hungarian Grand Prix

Special Contributor

Budapest is a destination of two halves, literally – Buda to the west and Pest to the east, with the mighty Danube River separating the two distinctly different sides of this beautiful city. Where Buda offers sweeping panoramic views from its wooded hills, with fairytale architecture and leafy cobbled promenades, Pest delivers a lively convivial alternative with many buzzy bars and restaurants in its historic centre.

With its intriguing mix of baroque, Roman, Medieval and Austro-Hungarian architecture, historic neighbourhoods, natural open air thermal spas, beautiful green spaces and of course the second longest river in Europe, the Danube so iconic that Johann Strauss composed arguably the most recognised waltz – Blue Danube – about it in 1866.
