If you would like to know more about this part of the city, you should walk around this area. The nearby Pünkösdfürd? is a great holiday centre by the northern borders of the city. There are some peaceful places by the side of the river, and some great sport facilities, for those who like to do water sports.


From here it is easy to reach the so known Óbuda district. It is the area on the right bank of the Danube by Árpád Bridge. In the Middle Ages it was the first significant settlement in the region, and some parts of it still has a special, small-townish atmosphere. Other parts have been demolished to make way for modern tower blocks. Before it was an area of royal residences, but after the Mongols invaded Hungary in the 13C, Béla IV moved to Castle Hill, and this area has lost its importance. After Turkish times, this place became a market town up to the 19C. The main sights here include the Baroque Parish Church, the nearby neo-Classical former Óbuda Synagogue. There are some great exhibitions around, like the Budapest Gallery Exhibition House with permanent exhibition of sculptor Pál Pátzay, the Vasarely Museum, the small Kassák Memorial Museum or the Zsigmond Kun Folk Art Collection of items from all over greater Hungary. The centre of this district is F? tér, where you can see the Zichy Mansion built in baroque style in the18C, which houses the Óbuda local history exhibition and the Kassák Memorial Museum. Around and behind the square you can still see some renovated, one-storey houses characteristics of the old Óbuda. Don’t miss to visit the statue composition three woman with umbrellas in Hajógyár utca, to the left of F? tér. It is a work of Imre Varga, one of the most prolific of contemporary Hungarian sculptors. There is also a Gallery nearby, where you can see more of his works.

If you are interested in old historical places, there are lots of ruins of Roman Ages in this area. Not just the well-known ruins of the Roman civilian town in Aquincum Museum, but also in the area around Florián tér, which was once a centre of a Roman military camp. Today you can see the remains all around the underpass network beneath the surface, which is a Roman Settlement Museum. It is only a few minute walk from F? tér, so you shouldn’t miss to see it!


Besides these, during summer weekends, there are music performances and other festivities, so try to get information about these during your stay here!
