Top 10 sights in Budapest


1. The House of Parliament

Considered to be one of the most beautiful government buildings in the world, the Hungarian House of Parliament is a ‘must’ when visiting the capital. Recently renovated, sits on the embankment of river Danube and is simply stunning by night.

2. Buda Castle

The former royal residence of Budapest is the ‘old-town’ of the city and is certainly worth checking out. Not to mention the view, which is going to take your breath away.

3. Széchenyi Thermal Bath

Hungary flaunts dozens of thermal springs, but if you were to visit one in particular it should most definitely be the 'yellow giant' in the city park. Indoor and outdoor pools, massages and the unmissable feeling of getting younger due to the beneficial effects of the thermal water.

4. Heroe’s Square

At the gate of the city park, stands one of the iconic symbols of Budapest. The square itself is a sight for sore eyes and let’s not forget about the two museums that surround it, the lake /ice-skating ring that’s behind it, and the millennium underground that has a stop by the famous square.

5. Dinner & Cruise

It is hard to imagine anything being more romantic than sailing past the Varkert Bazar, the Castle or the House of Parliament while sipping on rose and enjoying fine dining. During the first half of the cruise guests get to enjoy a four-course dinner, while in the other half they partake in an unforgettable Piano show. http://mandelan.eu/product/35/dinner-cruise-and-piano-battle-sho

6. Ruin bars

Ruin bars are considered just as much a ‘Hungaricum’ as pálinka or Unikum are nowadays. Amazing setting, furniture and atmosphere that cannot be experienced elsewhere. Sign up for a guided tour with a local that knows just which ruin bars to visit.

7. Széchenyi Chain Bridge

The bridge that was once destroyed already, is now the most prominent sight of the Hungarian capital. Rumor has it the lions that guard the gates of the bridge miss their tongues. Find out whether thats true or not yourself!

8. The Grand Synagogue

The oh-so-popular Jewish district’s flagship is Europe’s largest Synagogue and it is located about 2 minutes from the very centre of the city.

9. Margaret Island

Right between Buda and Pest, Margaret Island is perfect for a little getaway from the big city. The island is mostly a park, but it is the home of the Music Fountain, the Music Well and a Japanese garden which make it a worthy tourist attraction.

10. Gozsdu Court

What was once a regular block of flats is now one of the most sought-after night life centre in Budapest. Gozsdu Court is an outdoor area with heaps of bars and restaurants and it is very hard to imagine it ever being silent.

HOT Stuff

Lángos - A deep fried savoury dough that is best served with garlic, sour cream and grated cheese. A must while in the Hungarian capital.

Pálinka - Trademark spirit of the Hungarians. You will probably want to try it, but be careful, a few shots will definitely knock you out.

Match, Rubik's cube or the ballpoint pen are all Hungarian inventions.
