A new world opened as our mystery guest stepped onto the patio of La Perle Noire Restaurant and Lounge, which is, according to local media and residents, one of the most beautiful terraces in Budapest. And they are not wrong. Time stands still here, in a silent intensity, you find yourself captivated, under the magic spell of a relaxing urban garden. For you are the mystery guest. Welcome to a different hospitality experience. Prepare to enjoy the finest local dishes, the freshest local, and organic, ingredients, and the friendliest atmosphere in this magic city.

We’ve got it: you are a foodie. But, you are, probably, not alone. You are here to share the time of your life with someone special, and we will do anything we can to make your time with us as memorable as you imagined it. This is, after all, award-winning Mamaison Hotel Andrassy Budapest.

It could still be summer: the patio is green and cheerful. Guests come, and go, but you can linger for hours, in candlelight, under the stars, savoring signature dishes inspired by both Hungarian and French traditions.

But then, the weather may not always be on your side, so La Perle Noire Restaurant and Lounge is a haven of sorts, even when the elements are hostile. If you arrive too early, that “hear-a-pin-drop” silence may put you off, but patience, dear mystery guest: the energetic staff will appear in no time, with just the right culinary suggestions to take away your blues.

La Perle Noire Restaurant and Lounge

Imagine indulging in a Barbary duck breast with Rougié duck liver, chili Beluga lens ragout and gingery green apple, arriving at your table looking pretty much as sensual as a Charles Willmott painting. Now, that’s perfection, as some celebrity chef somewhere would say in front of the cameras. But, maybe, just maybe, you want something with local flavors? A “Chef menu,” one of the two you can choose from, paired with the right sommelier recommendations, will do the trick. In other words, precious mystery guest, no matter the season, we will overindulge you, for sure.

Not a “meat” fan? Well, there’s always the “more,” which stands for creative chef dishes, melt-in-your-mouth desserts, soups, salads, and internationally-inspired mains that change seasonally.

Kremlin in Izmailovo

Moscow is a wonderland of parks and green spaces, but one of the most beautiful spots to be, and the place that best symbolizes Russia’s glorious past and its cultural legacy, is the Kremlin in Izmailovo.

With outstanding architecture, inspired by drawings found in children’s books, as well as drawings and engravings of the Tzar residence of the XVI—XVII centuries, the Kremlin is not just an entertainment complex that attracts thousands of visitors every day, but a cultural symbol of the city. Something of a step back in time, this enchanting space was erected more than 25 years ago, on an abandoned wasteland, to rekindle the glory of the royal past of Russia in the hearts of the locals, and to promote national values to visitors from all over the world.

Kremlin in Izmailovo

As much as it stimulates a child’s fantasy, the Kremlin in Izmailovo is a transportive experience, where adults become children for a moment, bewitched by the beauty of the buildings, which captivate from the gate, till up high in the bell tower, where amazing views of the complex unfold in front of spellbound eyes.

The complex is a magnet for visitors of all ages. Young couples pick the outstanding Palace of Happiness to tie the knot, then celebrate the lifetime event in the Royal Hall just like the tsars and tsaritsas of the past. Others choose the Boyarsky Hall, for its hypnotic Russian folk style interior, which has the stuff of epic hero stories. The Palace of the Russian Meal – wooden palace of Tsar Alexey Mikhailovich in Izmaylovo – is another enchanting architectural fantasy, a wooden gem inspired by the building design of the the XVII century. The palace is decorated staircases, balconies and promenades, and can welcome up to 1,000 guests at once in the restaurant inside, which serves international and creative Russian cuisine.

The banquet facility called “Retro Cafe” has gained popularity for events, too, although it can only accommodate 25 guests. But for stylish, small group parties, this room is more than enough. Many birthdays are celebrated in and atmosphere that reminds of a small cafe of the early XX century. In fact, this space reminds more of a cozy apartment, where a chat with close friends is more important that the opulence of the room. Quite the same goes for the “VIP Cafe” room, which only accommodates up to 12 guests.

Children are fascinated by this outstanding complex too, and they have countless reasons to feel attracted by its palaces. Five museums share the honor of being part of the Kremlin in Izmailovo: a small museum, containing a beautiful collection of miniatures made from ordinary colored plasticine by Rostislav Olyunin and Andrew Miller, the World History in Plasticine Miniatures Museum; the Vodka Museum; the Museum of Russian Folk Toys which opens a world of wonder, entertainment, and educational activities for children of all ages; the Bread Museum; and the Museum of the Russian Navy.

Every season, these facilities host a variety of events for children – like the upcoming Moscow Children’s Art Festival “Young talent,” this year, on November 17th, at its 11th edition. Whenever you choose to visit the Kremlin in Izmailovo, you will find something to see and do, things that make your trip to Moscow the memory of a lifetime. And if you choose to stay at Mamaison All-Suites Spa Hotel Pokrovka Moscow, your experience will be even more rewarding.
