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

city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
