Ana Rita BrasMaybe the best view of the city, the first entrance there s an entrance fee, however continuing along the Church , on the second tower the entrance is free. Worth the views over the city, Parliament and other majestic buildings .
E17***23beautiful scenic spot, the best place to watch the fire work. its starts at the Four Seasons hotel and from the middle of the bridge you will have a fascinating view of the Parliament and the Buda side
M32***09Hungary's King's Palace is on the side of the Buda City. It is said that it was founded in the 13th century, more than 800 years later, destroyed by war, and rebuilt in the 18th century, and is a huge complex of magnificent buildings. The building is huge, the main building is a huge green dome, visible from a distance, and the huge columns, the majestic statues are impressive. The weather was clear and the city was a good view of the Danube from the square. The buildings on the other side were well seen, the Danube was blue and the bridge across the river was clearly visible. It was said that some of the buildings were bombed out during World War II, and the current palace was only able to show some of the features of the year.
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.

Over 15 million gallons of water bubble into Budapest's 118 springs and boreholes every day. That number points to the astounding array of baths in this city, from the sparkling Gellert Baths to the vast 1913 neo-baroque Szechenyi Spa to Rudas Spa, a dramatic 16th-century Turkish pool with original Ottoman architecture. The "Queen of the Danube" is also steeped in history, culture, and natural beauty. Get your camera ready for the Hungarian Parliament Building, Heroes' Square, and the Danube at sunset.
Budapest is one of the most photogenic cities in Europe. The dramatic skyline that Budapest is most famous for is peppered with 19th-century architectural wonders alongside the Danube River. Notable landmarks include the majestic riverside Parliament Building and a collection of stunning basilicas. Many medieval bridges connect the 2 sides of the city that make up its name: Buda and Pest.
The Hungarian capital combines the old and new, enabling you to find hip and lively experiences behind its façade of classical splendour. These range from bustling marketplaces in the city centre to one of the world’s most unique nightlife scenes. Ruin bars throughout the old Jewish Quarter offer fun evenings out. Let this nifty guide help point you to some of the coolest spots and unmissable things to do in Budapest.

The 235 m high hill dominates the side of Danube with the Citadel (Citadella). The hill was named after St. Gerard (Szent Gellért), who was thrown to death from the hill. Since 1987 the Gellért Hill (Gellért hegy) has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage. A lot of tourists climb to the top to admire the magnificent view.
Citadel is a fortress built in 1851 by the Habsburgs after the end of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848. Its original goal was to frighten the citizens instead of protecting the city. Today we think of it as a symbol of freedom.
The Statue of Liberty stands next to the Citadel since 1947. Its total height is 40 meter, the lady with the leaf is 11 m tall, which is an important gem of Budapest.
Egy csomagba belepakoltunk mindent, ami a 80-as 90-évek menő amerikai hangulatát idézi, felturbóztuk a mai igényekkel, és bumm…. villámként csapott be a Király utcába, így született meg a High Five Budapest Bistro Pub.
A korszakra jellemző pasztellszínektől és neonfényektől jólesően bizsergő atmoszférát az extravagáns falfestmények (pl.: Vincent Vega #pulfiction méteres portréja), szobrok, bútorok és a retró korszakot idéző végtelen társasjátékok – Jenga, Monopoly, Game of Games, csocsó… – teszik autentikussá.
Budapest is located in Middle Eastern Europe and it surrounded by Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Yugoslavia, Croatia and Slovenia.
Budapest is the capital city of Hungary. Hungary is frequented visited by US tourists and.
This is a friendly city with about 2 million citizen.
Budapest is split right through by the great River Danube, like a hyphen in the city’s very name. Just as a Danube divides Europe into East and West, so it divides this city’s west-bank Buda district from the east-bank district of Pest. East and west, the city has been tugged in both directions for almost its entire history.
Budapest is the largest city in Central Europe, Budapest is also one of its loveliest, hugging the curve of a wide band in the Danube. Along the west bank, the city climbs quickly up to Castle Hill, site of the former Royal Palace and the medieval village of Buda.
On a flat, low-lying plain across the river is Pest, the modern administrative and commercial hub of Budapest. An admirable example of town planning, the so called Inner City is distinguished by board, leafy boulevards, continental cafes and handsome baroque, neo-classical and novo buildings. The city’s grand look, fin-de-siecle look has prompted many to call Budapest “the Paris of the East.”
The point where the two sides face each other, across the Danube is what defines Budapest best. Lining the left bank of Pest is the palatial neo-Gothic Parliament building a whole city block of white spires, topped by a neo-Renaissance red dome. Just as famous is the 19th-century Chain Bridge regally guarded by four stone lions and linking (along with seven other bridges) the two banks of the city.

Welcome to “Textúra”:The best food in the world. We found this restaurant unintentionally and it was a gift from the universe. First: the service was so special. They made us feel at home in the first 3 minutes we were there. Second: the menu is huge and there are many options. It’s a mix between Hungarian and international food. Third: they take care of each detail in the plate. All you have to do is sit down and eat!!! I strongly recommend you to visit it! 🤤
