Budapest is one of the most popular cities to visit in Hungary and it has 23 districts, but not all of these will be equally attractive to tourists or travelers. So let’s sort that out in a minute.

The counting of the different areas started in the most historic part of the city. Then the other quarters have gotten their number in a (more or less) clockwise pattern as you can see in the illustration.

The further you move away from the heart of the city, the higher the numbers will be.

So that’s something you can use! If someone invites you for a drink in district 23, you’re going to be quite far away from the city center!

The most important touristic areas are district 1, 5, 6, and 7.

We’ll discuss these interesting neighbourhoods first.

If you want to know a little more about the other regions, we talk about those a bit further down the road!
