Highlights

The Hungarian capital’s first bridge built in 1849 has been rebuilt after being destroyed during World War II. It now stands as a monument and fascinating spectacle with the Buda Castle in the background.

The Gellert Hill , which Hungarians call a “mountain”, is one of the most popular places to visit in the capital. The Citadel can also be found here.

 

The “Budapest’s Central Park”, a 2,800 meter-long island in the Danube, is the greenest part of the city.  A Danube cruise is highly recommended and is simply breathtaking!

Standing to honor the 1000 year history of the Magyars is an impressive 36-meter column topped by the Archangel Gabriel, located at the end of Andrassy Avenue and at the gateway of City Park. This monument is also situated between the Hall of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts.

The Church of Our Lady, also known as the Matthias Church, commemorates Hungarian history with richly decorated walls and Gothic windows depicting the lives of Hungarian national heroes and saints.

The Hungarian Parliament is not to be missed! It is the third largest parliament in the world and is spectacular both inside and out.

Right next to the Parliament is the Szamos Chocolate Museum. With its impressive 78 kg marzipan statue called “Beautiful Girl with Chocolate” and delicious treats, you won’t be leaving without some Szamos marzipan to take home as souvenirs!

Connecting the banks of the River Danube and the Buda Castle, The Buda Castle Funicular has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a ride to enjoy spectacular views of the Danube and the city!

If your schedule permits, enjoy a performance at the world-famous Budapest Opera House!

Shop at the Central Market Hall and try some traditional Hungarian food – especially the Hungarian Goulash!

 

Before returning home, treat yourselves at the Szechenyi Thermal Bath, the largest bathing complex in Europe with 21 pools, water chute, underwater jet massage, neck shower, bubble deck, fitness center, saunas and underwater gymnastics for a once in a life-time experience.
