The boat also offers complimentary Wi-Fi and a bar where you can purchase drinks at your own expense. Then, admire Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube embankments while you cruise. Glide by the Hungarian Parliament, Buda district, and Chain Bridge, and on later evening departures, view the night-time illuminations.
