the Hungarian Sea. The lake is the largest in Central Europe.

After scouring the alleyways of downtown Pest and Buda's Castle
Hill on your first visit, you may return to discover the neighbourhoods between the two
keruts (ring-boulevards): the high and narrow streets of Terezvaros, the squares and
backstreet cafes of Erszebetvaros, the seedy but intriguing Jozsefvaros.
Budapest is a city to discover in steps and stages - every time you go
there, you will find a whole new area of town you'd previously overlooked, that turns out
to again have a mood of its own. The city is beautiful in mid-winter, its quiet charm
preserved in icy melancholy; in summer, residents and tourists alike flock to the lovely
Varosliget (City Park) and Margit Island.
There's more to find even further out: don't forget to put on your
hiking boots one day and take a city bus west into Buda Hills - you can walk for hours in
the forests there, and find magnificent views out over the Danube and the city.
For one more out-of-the-way tip, if you're heading for a leisurely
stroll on Margit Island anyway, check into the Buda riverside and look up the small but
impressive tomb of Gul Baba, where Muslims and Baha'i pilgrims meet - and find it by
walking up the pretty, strangely Balkanesque Gul Baba utca - sheer fairy tale stuff.
