The City Center borders follow the line of the old city walls, and contain several UNESCO world heritage sites, including the majestic Gresham Palace, now renovated and operating as the Four Seasons Hotel, Budapest – one of the most highly-regarded hotels in Europe.
St. Stephen’s Basilica, Budapest’s largest church, offers a magnificent view of the city from the cupola, and a modern elevator takes visitors most of the way up. The gothic Hungarian Parliament is one of the most beautiful and ancient legislative buildings of Europe and the third largest Parliament building in the world. The most beautiful concert hall in Budapest, the architecture of the Pesti Vigadó has been described as romantic Oriental and Hungarian Art Nouveau.
One of the busiest centers of the Inner City is Vörösmarty Square, ringed by cafés and restaurants. In its centre is a statue of Mihály Vörösmarty, the great 19th-century Hungarian poet. The connecting Fashion Street is an exclusive shopping avenue with designer stores that crosses Budapest's other famous shopping street, Váci Street. Lined with eateries and boutiques, street stalls outside sell Hungarian folk embroidery and crafts, wines, and traditional local delicacies. A few minutes away, the modern West End City Shopping Center has a multiplex cinema and an ice-skating rink on its roof. Erzsébet Square, the city centre's largest park, is in fact a roof garden of the Gödör Klub cultural center. There is a wide range of accommodation options in this district, and hotels here are well served by metro lines and other major public transport lines.
