Lovely building from the outside and, as my father in law is a physicist within the building, I have been lucky enough to go inside. It's a very interesting place. Hungary should be proud of the incredible discoveries made behind those doors.

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
