Hungary's romantic and historic capital city is often described as the most beautiful city in Europe.  Formerly two cities, Buda and Pest, sit either side of the mighty Danube.  They were amalgamated in 1873.  Budapest is also known as the city of spas, uniquely rich in thermal waters providing excellent medicinal therapies.  Budapest's musical heritage includes the composers Liszt, Kodaly, Bartok and Erkel.  Both Lehar and Kalman were born in Hungary and their works are regularly included in the repertoire of the Budapest Operetta Theatre

Musical institutions include the Hungarian State Opera, the Budapest Operetta Theatre, the Hungarian State Orchestra, the Nemzeti Philharmonia and  the Budapest Festival Orchestra.  Performances by the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble are given regularly and a concert by the 100 member Gypsy Orchestra provides a thrilling and memorable experience.  For Operetta with a difference, an evening cruise on the "Operetta Ship" (April to October) features soloists from the Hungarian State Opera.

Buda Castle, Danube Embankment and Andrassy Avenue are all World Heritage sites.  The Castle district is packed with museums.  The view from the Royal Palace across the Danube is breathtaking.  The famous Fisherman's Bastion, situated on the Buda side of the Danube, provides magnificent views of the river and over Pest.
