District II. , Széphalom
Budapest’s Second District is home to the city’s most sought-after residential neighborhoods. It marks a rapid shift from the bustling downtown and frequented castle district to peaceful rolling hills. Unique cafes, bars, shopping centers and transportation hubs are clustered from the river to the foot of the hills, and slowly give way to winding tree-lined streets full of gorgeous historic villas. Just a 30-minute ride to the Downtown, the Second is incredibly peaceful, yet approachable, making it a favorite of foreign embassies and the city’s elite.
Quiet neighborhoods, ample green space and scenic strolls. Beautiful residences, close-by nature walks and charming parks are equidistant to the dining and nightlife of downtown Budapest. This district has something for everyone.
An abundance of walkable restaurant choices, or a late-night party scene. Although the hills are home to some of the city’s most upscale dining destinations – and even one of Budapest’s oldest cocktail bars – life in the Second District can feel less connected and bustling than in its more urban neighbors like the Third and First Districts.
