The two Downtowns ? on foot from Buda to Pest

From the former center of authority, the Castle of Buda, this tour leads through several distinctive parts of the city to Vörösmarty square, the commercial center of present days. From the Castle built in with two to three-story middle-age and baroque houses, our way leads to the intimate district of Víziváros. Crossing Lánchíd (the Chain Bridge), the first bridge completed over the Danube, we arrive to Lipótváros (5th district), built up uniformly at the beginning of the 19th century. The classicist palaces here are especially attractive. On Szabadság square, which was created at the turn of the 19th century, stood a huge prison. Today the square is the financial center of the city. From here we get to Erzsébet square passing by St. Stephen's Cathedral. In a nearby area, an underground cultural center was built in place of the planned National Theater. Our walk ends a few steps away at Vörösmarty square.
