Top sights close to the Corvinus University of Budapest

Great Market Hall (or Central Market Hall)
Distance from the University: 3 minute walk

The Central Market Hall or Great Market Hall is the most beautiful Budapest market hall. It was built in 1897 with beautiful tiled roofs and a colourful facade of patterned orange bricks. Although the Central Market Hall (Vasarcsarnok) was pretty damaged during WW2, it has been restored perfectly in the 1990s. “Budapest’s biggest indoor market is the sort of place where you can wander for hours, until sensory overload kicks in.

Gellért Thermal Bath
Distance from the University: 11 minute walk

The Gellért Spa is part of the famous Art Nouveau Hotel Gellért on the right bank of the Danube. Budapest was awarded the title of Spa City in 1934 and Gellért Spa, widely acknowledged as one of the most beautiful in all of Budapest, is one of the main reasons. The restorative traditions on this spot stretch way into the past; references to healing waters in this location are found from as early as the 13th century.

Cave Church
Distance from the University: 14 minute walk

The Cave Church, located inside Gellért Hill, isn't your typical church with high ceilings and gilded interior. It has a unique setting inside a natural cave system formed by thermal springs. The cave, called Saint Ivan’s Cave (Szent Iván-barlang) after a hermit who lived there and healed people, belongs to the Hungarian Paulite order. With such a historic feel no one would think that the church and the adjacent monastery was built less than 100 years ago.
