District XII (prime area) sits at the gateway to Buda Hills. It is a serene neighborhood. Lush greenery and towering woods cover these hills, regularly cleansing the air. Large homes are found among the hiking trails, winding roads, and even a few bus lines. It is beautiful, but expensive, offering comfort, and calm near Budapest's bustling center.
It is especially popular with families. In winter, the hills are coated with a thick white blanket of snow. It is not uncommon to see parents giving children their first ski lessons here. During the warmer seasons of spring and summer, strolling, daydreaming, and picnics are popular.
Those wanting a sweet treat must ask for r�tes, a local delicacy made especially yummy in Normafa. It is a deliciously fluffy strudel, filled with seasonal fruit (usually plums, cheeries or apples) or cottage cheese.
It is home to yet another exclusive residential area, where the President and Prime Minister (as well as other political dignitaries) make their home. This district is particulary a hotspot for well to do Hungarians and expatriate families, due to the international schools nearby in neighboring districts.
