Hungary : Michelin's recommendations


With Buda on the right bank and Pest on the left bank, "the pearl of the Danube" stretches out from both sides of this mythical river . The Magyar capital is a melting pot of different cultures whose marks form part of the national heritage. It is the city of baths, dance, music, legendary cake shops-tea rooms and literary cafés. It is a display case for Art nouveau which had its golden age at the turn of the 19th Century... How can you resist all these charms?
