Római part (‘Roman Embankment’) is a place of pilgrimage for those who like to spend time by the Danube, eating fried fish with a cold beer in hand, sold from any number of outlets and eateries that line the riverfront. No-one one leaves Római hungry – although you might also collect a few mosquito bites. If you’re looking for something special, check Fellini: the place looks like a set from a Wes Anderson movie, where you can laze around in pastel deck chairs, entertained by occasional live music. The Római is also popular with cyclists, rowers, runners and dog walkers.

St Stephen’s Basilica of Budapest is one of the most beautiful and significant churches and touristic attractions of the country. In the cupola of the Basilica, a panorama lookout was established for touristic purposes, which made it necessary to install elevators. Visitors can now access the look-out by using the two elevators and some walking, instead of having to climb 364 stairs.
