Klchici used to live in Budapest for 2 years and Széchenyi Lanchíd is one of the prettiest thing i've ever since when i first moved to hungary. the whole city is just beautiful and it is an art. this bridge is especially beautiful compare to the many bridges of budapest on the Danube and definitely instagram worthy pic.
Klchicit is located in the heart of budapest, stands majestically on a square, surrounded by stylish cafes. it is definitely the city's tourist attraction. if you can climb up to the dome which i did, you get to see

Do make advance reservation before heading down as they only open from Tuesday to Friday, as for menu, I would recommend to try their 5 courses degustation menu at 26,000 Ft.
Appertizer: recommend the perch, cauliflower with buttermilk, it tastes so good!!
Soup: artichoke broth with quail is awesome!!
Main course: fresh fish with broccoli and dill, and angus beef is highly recommended.
Dessert: can try the chocolate, pear and porcini mushroom
Overall the dishes are nicely plated, served with premium ingredients, worth a try!
Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is bisected by the River Danube. Its 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. A funicular runs up Castle Hill to Buda’s Old Town, where the Budapest History Museum traces city life from Roman times onward. Trinity Square is home to 13th-century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen’s Bastion, which offer sweeping views.

Favourite specialty coffee place in Budapest so far. Everything was spot on. Own light roasts extracted just right, hitting that sweetness spot. Didn’t have any food but the menu looked very attractive as well.
cozy coffee/tea shop that has a small but great quality menu. The vibe was very comfortable and chill. I ordered a filtered coffee from Ethiopia (they had choices from Guatemala, Ethiopia, and El Salvador for coffee) and my friend had a white tea. We both enjoyed our selections.
Amazing coffee. It was the right temperature and naturally sweet. If you are a coffee purist then you will love this place! No sugar signs pretty much everywhere, which is how coffee should be. Highly recommend
We booked this tour at the last minute when one of our other tours that day was canceled and we needed to fill an afternoon. We are so glad that we found this tour! We were picked up in a mini bus, and driven through a lot of interesting squares and streets, and had some walking tours to the biggest spots in Bucharest.
We started with a short ride through Bucharest to stop a little outside the city at the Dimitrie Gusti Village. It was very interesting to see the houses and the people who still live there, and to be able to purchase some of their handmade items.
This playful Workstation cabin is the ideal, private spot for work and meetings, but it can also function as a guest room or a playroom for the kids. It is the perfect refuge should you need a tranquil place to relax or immerse yourself in a creative space. In turn, the cabin’s plan showcases the irregularity in the building’s form. The pebble-shaped project is anything but two-dimensional (it has 15 sides) and shows a different face from every angle.

Budapest has something for everyone – from dramatic history and flamboyant architecture to healing thermal waters and a nightlife that is unrivalled in Eastern and Central Europe.
Budapest’s beauty is not all God given; humankind has played a role in shaping this pretty face too. Architecturally, the city is a treasure trove, with enough baroque, neoclassical, Eclectic and art nouveau buildings to satisfy everyone. Overall, though, Budapest has a fin de siècle feel to it, for it was then, during the capital’s ‘golden age' in the late 19th century, that most of what you see today was built.
There's a lot more to Hungarian food than goulash, and it remains one of the most sophisticated styles of cooking in Eastern and Central Europe. Magyars may exaggerate when they say that there are three essential world cuisines – French, Chinese and their own. But Budapest’s reputation as a food capital dates largely from the late 19th and the first half of the 20th century and, despite a fallow period under communism, the city is once again commanding attention. So, too, are Hungary's excellent wines – from Eger's complex reds and Somló’s flinty whites to honey-sweet Tokaj.
Budapest is blessed with an abundance of hot springs. As a result, ‘taking the waters’ has been an experience here since the time of the Romans. The array of bathhouses is generous – you can choose from Turkish-era, art nouveau and modern establishments. Some people come seeking a cure for whatever ails them, but the majority are there for fun and relaxation – though we still maintain it’s the world’s best cure for what Hungarians call a macskajaj (cat’s wail) – hangover.

The domed neo-Gothic structre was inspired by the British House of Parliament and serves as both a vibrant government center and a proud city landmark on the banks of the Danube. The architecture of this building is amazing, and obviously it is symbol for the whole Hungary
Moreover it is also beautiful to see enlightened during the night.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to visit inside, because there weren’t empty slots.
After all it is parliament and not a normal museum, so you can’t visit by yourself but you will have a guide divided by nationality and time. It isn’t easy at all. If we had known we would have booked online.
