With a history stretching back 2,000 years, Budapest is as beautiful as it is mysterious. Glorious architecture peeks over the skyline, elegant squares lend an air of bygone civility to modern city life and the River Danube flows contentedly onward.

Nestled into its center is The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest, a luxury downtown hotel that resides just steps away from some of the city’s most beloved attractions, including St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Chain Bridge and Vörösmarty Square. From here, guests can view first-hand the very etymology of Budapest: Buda presides over two hills, while Pest, with its shopping and business districts, resides across the River Danube.

During your stay, discover the compelling range of places to visit and things to do in Budapest. From its legendary thermal waters to shopping, museums and dining, Hungary’s capital city is waiting to enchant you.
