One of the main attractions for travellers visiting Budapest is Margit Sziget or Margaret Island. Margaret Island is a 2.5 km long island located in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest, between Buda and Pest. The island is mostly covered by park areas, and is a popular recreational area for tourists as well as locals. We offer a handful of Margit Sziget accommodation that has proven to be very popular with visitors.
The islands major landmarks are the Centennial Memorial, a small Japanese Garden with a mildly thermal fish pond, a tiny zoo featuring a wide range of exotic waterfowl among other animals, a fountain with background music (for example Strauss) and light show in summer and an octagonal Water Tower built in Art Nouveau style in 1911.
For those tourists interested in Formula 1 we have a good selection of City Centre (Buda) hotels that offer excellent transport connections and access to the Hungaroring. The Hungaroring is a Formula 1 racing circuit near Budapest, where the Hungarian Grand Prix is held. Bernie Ecclestone originally wanted a race in the USSR, but a Hungarian friend of his recommended Budapest. They wanted a street circuit similar to the Circuit de Monaco to be built but the government decided to build a new circuit just outside the city. The track is well known to British racing fans as it is where Jenson Button won his first Grand Prix after 113 attempts.
