The magnificent Hungarian capital, Budapest is a veritable treasure trove of sights for everyone who sets foot here. As you roam the streets and stumble on sight after sight, you soon realise that you’ll never have enough time to truly appreciate everything worth seeing here. Fortunately, help is at hand: here is a wholly unbiased, definitive Budpest must-see list to guide you along.
Budapest must-see: New York Café in New York Palace
The edifice of New York Café has to be top of the list of things to see when you visit Hungary and spend a few days or weeks in Budapest.
The history of this magnificent building spans 120 years; during this time, the place has been infused with art, culture and literature – not to mention of course the scent of freshly roasted top grade coffee.
Though the building itself is 120 years old, it didn’t remain undamaged by the ravages of WW2, so, in 2006 it received a new lease of life.
The results speak for themselves: the building has been catapulted near (if not to) the top of any Budapest must-see list.
The „Most Beautiful Cafe in the World” – a must-see!
The renovated building’s significance has now outgrown Hungary in terms of special memories, experiences and things to see; in 2011, it was awarded the prestigious title of Most Beautiful Cafe in the World, a distinction we have cherished and striven to live up to ever since.
This makes our coffee house one of a kind in the whole world – another reason to visit us when you’re in Budapest.
