A good way to get your bearings when you first arrive, nice overview of history, politics and food recommendations which you can then follow up later. Funny guide who was knowledgeable about many areas, willing to take questions and give advice.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
