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

In the restaurant of Akademia Italia the Italian cuisine is simple, but exclusively made of carefully controlled, high-quality, protected designation of origin ingredients. Our pastas and desserts are also freshly made on site, in a traditional, hand-made way, and we personally know the wine-growers we are selling the carefully, professionally selected products of.
