What to see in Budapest

Budapest, Hungary's capital, straddles the Danube River, uniting the historic Buda Castle District with the vibrant Pest side. This dynamic city boasts iconic landmarks, such as the Chain Bridge and Parliament Building, and is celebrated for its thermal baths, including the Széchenyi and Gellért Baths, making it a captivating blend of history and relaxation.

Perched atop the hilly west bank of the Danube River, the Buda Castle District is a historic gem that transports visitors to Budapest's medieval past. Dominated by the majestic Buda Castle, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a treasure trove of history, culture and architectural wonders. Begin your exploration at the impressive Matthias Church, a Gothic masterpiece known for its colourful interior and stunning frescoes. Adjacent to the church stands the Fisherman's Bastion, an architectural marvel with fairy-tale-like towers and panoramic viewpoints offering breathtaking vistas of the Danube and Pest side.

Budapest is renowned for its thermal baths and the Széchenyi Thermal Bath is one of the city's most famous and beloved. Located in the sprawling City Park, this thermal complex offers a unique opportunity to unwind, relax and experience Hungary's rich spa culture. The Széchenyi Thermal Bath boasts an impressive Neo-Baroque building with an inviting outdoor pool area featuring thermal pools, whirlpools and saunas. The water's mineral content is believed to have therapeutic properties, making it a rejuvenating experience for visitors.

One of the best ways to experience the beauty of Budapest is from the Danube River itself. A Danube River cruise allows you to admire the city's iconic landmarks and bridges while enjoying a leisurely journey along the river. Cruises typically depart from various points along the riverbanks, including near the Chain Bridge, providing flexibility in choosing the duration and type of cruise that suits your preferences. Some options include daytime sightseeing cruises, evening dinner cruises and even themed cruises with live entertainment. During your cruise, you'll pass by Budapest's most famous sights, including the Parliament Building, Buda Castle, Matthias Church and Gellért Hill with its Liberty Statue. The illuminated cityscape at night creates a magical ambience that is especially enchanting.
