    I recommend to schedule a guided visit in your own language. The visit is just remarkable. It's a must do! Don't you miss Szent Istvan's Crown and the Parliament's meeting rooms, hallways and stairs. Specially the major National Assembly Hall.

    If you are only able to visit one single spot during your stay, you should go to Halaszbastya. We walked up from the Metro station which took roughly 10min.

    St. Istvan Basilica is the religious heart in the center of Budapest. Beautiful and majestic on its classical Romanic style. The Basilica is visited for millions of people every year, even Popes Johan Paulus II and Francisco. Please visit, enjoy this sacred place, always keeping respectful silence during Holy Mises.

    The Danube River is the vital fluid of the 'City of Water':
    Buda-Duna-Pest!
    A river was never bluer than the Duna on summer nights.

    You can have some very good views and enjoy the architecture. There are a few coffee shops for refreshments. The national gallery is also based there which is handy

    A touching impressive memorial place by the Danube River shore. Don't miss it, but with all due respect for the victims of the holocaust: Not ever again!

    We loved spending a morning here . Great place to visit if you are short on money. The musical water fountain was a nice surprise! Island would have five stars if it had better and bigger cafes . Be aware you have to pay to use the toilet !

    To say reaching the top in 30 degrees of afternoon heat and humidity was a trek would be an understatement. To say I was more than delighted that I did, would also be an understatement. The views are spectacular. The views are spectacular. Panoramic. There is an energy about this place that is hard to explain. It almost feels like you become revitalised after every viewing point.

    Great place to be in the heat although limited sun beds and chairs so arrive early!

    Definitely try the beer spa…

    We visited during our recent travels and booked the evening classical concert. The church is quite beautiful with their stained glass windows and alter. The music was heavenly. Highly recommend.

    It was a fun way to end our night. Kids loved it and we also enjoyed.
    Many old pinball machines that are all able to be played with other arcades as well. All the games are included with your admission ticket. No need to get the skips the line pass as it was quite empty.

    You can spend an hour or 2 easily there, maybe more.

    The Heroe's Square is an iconic visitor site with a lot of rich history in the staturary. There is also conveniently located art museums, opera house, city park and thermal baths. While there you may want to visit Vajdahunyad Castle. City buses and trams as well as HOHO buses have stops here.

    We had a very interesting guided tour about the hospital. I am no history buff but I really enjoyed learning about the function of the hospital . One slight criticism is that they do let slightly too many people on the tours, could be hard to hear at the back
