The Danube Promenade is located on the Pest side of Budapest. On the bank of the Danube, this promenade extends from the Széchenyi Chain Bridge to the Elisabeth Bridge. In the midst of boxes of glass hotels is the eccentric Neo-Byzantine Vigadó Concert Hall. Further along the promenade is Március 15 tér, where the remains of a Roman bastion, Contra-Aquincum, were discovered.
Behind the Vigadó is the local hub of the city, Vörösmarty tér, named after the 19th-century poet Mihály Vörösmarty. The traditional Gerbeaud coffeehouse has long been a great people watching spot. Váci utca and environs is the area for chic clothing, used books, folk art and sidewalk cafés. The Inner City Parish Church’s simple exterior conceals a colourful past: it began as a Romanesque basilica, was used as a mosque and was finally reconceived in the Baroque style in the 18th century.
