One of my favourite Budapest places is the Central Market Hall (Nagy Vasarcsarnok in Hungarian). Several reasons: it is very central, worth while to visit with its heritage and beautiful architecture. To be honest, it doesn’t look like a ‘wet market’. It has very beautiful designs on its gate, the produce offered are very fresh. If you are visiting Budapest in Spring, the strawberries are really delicious. On the second floor, you can find Langos and eat it on the spot. Here’s another view of the iron grillings of the gate.
Budapest apartments are spacious and their buildings are in a traditional art nouveau style. It is very central and convenient since it is very near the Nyugati Railway station and the central interchange Oktogon. This area is also very near to the Andrassy Boulevard, the so called cultural boulevard. If you like music, there is the Franz Liszt Square, the State Opera-House, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Parliament, Heroes Square, all in few minutes by foot. If you like jogging, there is the historic Margaret Island, if you like baths, there is the famous Szechenyi thermal baths accessible by a 10minute trolleybus.
Besides the Royal Palace, the attractions on Castle Hill is great assortment. You are also recommended to see the Mary Magdalene Tower (Maria Magdolna torony), the Vienna Gate (Becsi Kapu) at the norther end of the Castle Hill, the unique rococo spire of the Matthias Church (Matyas templom). Not to be missed is of course the Fisherman’s Bastion (Halaszbastya), the Turul sculpture and the mind-boggling collection of 19th century Hungarian paintings in the National Gallery (Nemzeti Galeria) which is in the palace wings B, C and D.
