For me, these are the must-see attractions of this wonderful city!

Buda Castle

The star of the points of interest on this Budapest itinerary is of course Buda Castle (Budavári Palota), in reality, a palace complex that over the centuries has undergone several reconstructions. Here you can visit the Budapest History Museum, the Hungarian National Gallery, and the Széchényi National Library. From the Savoyai terraces, you have a beautiful view over Pest.

The Fisherman’s Bastion

The Fisherman’s Bastion (Halászbástya) has terraces that provide one of the best panoramic views of Pest and the Danube and is easily distinguishable on the horizon because of its 7 towers. The towers represent the 7 tribes that founded the city. It is an attraction that is really worth visiting, as it stands out for its difference and beauty.Post Creator

The Chain Bridge

The Chain Bridge (Széchenyi Lánchíd) is a special place to enjoy the Hungarian capital, especially at night when the dark waters of the Danube become the perfect reflection of the lights of Buda and Pest.

Budapest Parliament

Budapest’s neo-Gothic Parliament building (Országház) is one of the most striking buildings of the Hungarian capital and one of the oldest government buildings in Europe. Its size and majesty are remarkable, and viewing this building at night is a defining moment in your visit to this wonderful capital.

Shoes memorial

Like all memorials, this one serves the purpose of reminding us of the atrocious and cruel acts that humanity is capable of committing in dark periods of our history. In Budapest, during the Nazi occupation, victims of all ages were taken to the riverbank and forced to take off their shoes: their shoes still had value, their lives did not. Without appeal or aggravation, they were executed with a shot in the back of the head. The river would “clean up” the dirt of the firing squad by carrying the bodies downstream.

City Park (Városliget)

The great icon of this place is Heroes’ Square with a monument to the 7 tribes that founded Budapest. Here you will find two art museums, a zoo, or even learn something in the Botanical Garden or the Vajdahunyad Castle. Here you will find one of the best attractions of this city, the famous thermal baths. To simply relax, visit the amazing Széchenyi Thermal Baths. Besides the beauty, you will leave here lighter and more relaxed, and ready to enjoy your trip in this beautiful capital to the fullest.

Ruin Pubs

The nightlife in Budapest is breathtaking, truly vibrant, and one of its hallmarks is the bars that were born from the restoration of some buildings that were in ruins. The Ruin Pubs are such a winning idea that it has multiplied throughout European capitals.

Central Market

Great Market Hall ( Nagy Vásárcsarnok) is located opposite Fóvam Square and the Freedom Bridge on the Pest side. It is the most important market in the city. Hungarian delicatessen, meat, sausages or sweets, souvenir stores, you will find everything in this emblematic market for a good price!

Budapest is for me one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It is really worth visiting its incredible attractions, tasting the wonderful food and relaxing in its famous thermal baths. You won’t regret it!
