Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe where exquisite architecture runs from one end to the other, it’s no surprise Budapest has been ranked as the world’s second best city by Conde Nast Traveller. Travellers would love the stories of the Great Synagogue, built in 1859 but maintained to retain its historic beauty. Inside, the Holocaust Memorial Room offers a chance to reflect on the events that occurred. The Neolog synagogue built by Ludwig Foster also features the central rose window and a grand organ dating back to 1902.
The Budapest Royal Palace is visible from everywhere in Budapest, housing the Hungarian National Gallery with an overwhelming collection over four floors tracing back to the 11th century. These artworks include those from the Renaissance period, Gothic wooden sculptures as well as medieval stonework. Also within the Palace lies the Budapest History Museum, dedicated to showcasing history with restored rooms and artefacts from the once famous medieval location.
