District V Belváros-Lipótváros - Pest side Attractions in Budapest

The inner city or District V. gives home to many of the architectural and natural beauties of the Pest side. Most of the buildings have been built under the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in the late 18th century; therefore it is Secessionism and Eclecticism that characterises the District architecturally. The Danube is also responsible for the wonderful, magical atmosphere.

The Váci Street and Vörösmarthy Square have been chosen as our top picks being pleasant for a strolls and soaking in the atmosphere. The Duna Korzo or Danube Embankment running parallel to the lovely pedestrian street makes for lovely walks, and crossing the Chain Bridge is an absolute must.

Our next four picks are the monumental masterpieces of not just the District but the city as well, namely the Parliament; largest and most decorative building of Budapest, the St. Stephen's Basilica; largest Roman Catholic Church of the city, the Gresham Palace; considered the most beautiful Secessionist building of Budapest and the Academy of Sciences; a Neo-Renaissance masterpiece representing Hungary's thirst for knowledge.

Our last two picks are two lovely churches located half way along the Váci Street, the Inner City Parish Church; oldest church of the city with some parts dating all the way back to the 14th century and the Franciscan Church; bearing the relief of Count Wesselényi saving the lives during the great flood of 1838.
