The Best of Budapest

There are a lot of beautiful and interesting cities to visit in Europe. Each city is unique in its own way.  Budapest itself has its own uniqueness. It can offer a lot of things to every guest and tourist. Besides this city is not so expensive compared to Paris, London or Zurich.

There are a lot of means to get in to Budapest. You can find cheap international flights to this city especially if you book it ahead of time. It is also reachable by train, buses or by boat depending on your point of departure.

Don't miss these famous attractions and sights when visiting Budapest, Hungary.

Buda Castle is considered to be one of the tops sights in Hungary's capital. It is located on the Pest side of Budapest. From there you can have an amazing view of the city. Take a walk in the castle district and be sure to visit the Matthias Church, the Fishermen's Bastion and the Holy Trinity Square.

The Parliament Building from the Fishermen's Bastion.

The Parliament is another interesting structure of the city. It is the most grandiose building on the Pest embankment. It is the second largest parliament building in Europe after the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania.

The only way to go inside the Parliament is through guided tours which is said to be free for inhabitants of European Union.

St. Stephen's Cathedral is the tallest building in Budapest. It has the same height as the Parliament building. The mummified right hand of the founding king of Hungary, Saint Stephen since the 11th century is found inside this Basilica.

The Heroes' Square, called as Hosok tere in Hungarian is also worth to visit. You can find the Millennium Monument in this famous square of Budapest.

The Heroes' Square during my second visit last June 4-5, 2012.

The Citadel on the Gellert Hill and the Statue of Liberty are worth a short hike. You can also take the bus no. 27 to go there.

Other top sights in the city are the City Park, Danube Promenade, Margaret Island and a walk to the Andrassy Avenue are all worth to experience.

If you are coming from France, Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain, cheap carriers like Easyjet, Ryanair and German Wings are servicing flights to Budapest.
