Budapest

Budapest

15 leading cultural institutions of Budapest including museums, concert halls and theatres joined together to provide you with the most exciting cultural events in Budapest from January until December in 2010.

In the last few years major improvement could be experienced in the quality of cultural offers in Budapest, just as well as in the attitude of the concerned institutions. The Tourism Office of Budapest founded the Cultural Budapest Group together with the Palace of Arts in May 2008. These institutions were the first to realise that in today's turbulent world people are interested in cultural programmes rep-resenting real value. Nowadays local urban people and tourists tend to consider more carefully what to do in their limited free time, so they take part in fewer programmes but in ones that provide them with real experiences.

In addition, feedbacks from tourists and the findings of culture-related researches also prove that even today the best references are personal experiences and the opinion of locals, friends and acquaintances. With these points in mind, the Tourism Office of Budapest has launched a new cultural adventure concept last year, within the framework of which inhabitants from Budapest and tourists who are fond of Budapest will recommend the best locations and programmes in the city to others.

It is a pleasure to offer you this cultural guide of Budapest, which helps you to choose from the programmes according to your preferences during the whole year!

We wish you unforgettable ad-ventures in the city of culture!

BUDAPEST HISTORY MUSEUM

Come and visit the Budapest History Museum, which has been welcoming visitors for 120 years to present the capital's history over several sites. JheAquincum Museum is the largest contiguous area of Roman ruins in Europe - with the exception of Rome -, and features an exhibition on the life of the Roman province of Pannonia. The capital's art collection and modern historical relics are exhibited in the Kiscell Mansion in Obuda.

The Castle Museum is located in a wonderful historical environment at the wing of the former royal palace, toward Gellert Hill. The Gothic and renaissance chambers of the mostly destroyed medieval building can be seen on the ground floor of the museum. Visitors may walk through the rooms of the mediaeval royal palace, and see its unmatched collection of treasures, such as the Anjou silk tapestry, or the collection of Gothic statues.

The ancient walls, the Gothic hall and the royal chapel have historic atmospheres. The museum's reconstructed renaissance gardens are also open to the public from spring to autumn. There is an amazing view from the castle walls towards the city. The museum's exhibitions show historical events and figures of the capital from prehistoric to present times.
