As I promised, I am bringing you some Budapest magic and some travel tips for those who are planning to visit this beautiful city.
We stayed for four days, and it was enough for us to visit all those well-known places.
As I did similar post from Rome HERE, I am bringing you some helpful tips where to stay and what is a MUST see while in Budapest.
Where to stay in Budapest:
After Rome, we again reserved a whole apartment for ourselves via Airbnb. We had amazing flat located in the center of the Budapest, with all city sightseeing places in walking distance.
I have to say, after using Airbnb for few times now, I would never stay in hostels/hotels ever again. I highly recommend it to everyone.
What to see:
Here’s a list of the famous tourist attractions that you really have to visit and see.
- Heroes’ Square
Largest and most impressive square of the city. It is located near two important buildings, Museum of Fine Arts and Hall of Art, also next to beautiful City Park, where we took or photos from previous post here. I wish we visited also during the night, because during the winter, there is huge ice rink, just next to the City Park.
- Central Market Hall
Largest indoor market in Budapest. On the second floor, you can find clothes and souvenir stands. We actually used our time here to buy some small souvenirs and gifts.
- Gellért Hill
This was one of my favorite places we visited. I always loved great panoramas, and this is the best place to see some amazing panoramic views of Budapest.
Budapest’s Statue of Liberty stands on top of the hill, and can be seen from all parts of the city. If you like to enjoy the breathtaking views of the city, than this is MUST see.
- Fishermen’s Bastion
Next to the breathtaking Matthias Church (first photo), you can find the Fishermans Bastion. From the towers and the terrace there is absolutely beautiful panoramic view of Danube, Pest and Gellért Hill. Entrance is for free, except if you want to enter the lookout at the tower, which I think is not necessary, as you have equally beautiful view for free.
- Váci Street
‘Váci utca’ is definitely most famous street in Budapest. It is a long street full of pubs, restaurants and shops. I recommend it only for window shopping, as most of the restaurants and souvenir shops are quite expensive.
- Royal Palace
The Royal Palace is visible from almost everywhere in Budapest. This place is massive. Buda castle is exactly on the top of the hill, close to Fisherman Bastion. From the top there is wonderful view to entire Budapest.
- Budapest Parliament
Definitely one of the most beautiful architectures I have seen. This is the world’s third largest Parliament building. Stunning view during day and night. I highly recommend to take tram number 2 during the night. It will take you around Danube river, with amazing view on Fishermen’s Bastion, Gellért Hill and Parliament.
- Chain Bridge
This is the first bridge that connected Buda and Pest side. It is offering one of most stunning view of the Danube river.Hope this will be helpful for all of you planning your trip to Budapest.
Have a great weekend guys :)
