WHAT TO SEE IN BUDAPEST

The Parliament

Located on the banks of the Danube it is the most famous building in the city. Its neo-Gothic style will not leave you indifferent, both inside and out.

Its most important treasure is the crown of St. Stephen in the Hall of the Dome, although in my opinion the whole building is a treasure.

Do not forget to take the guided tour that is essential to understand the history and curiosities of the place.

Chains Bridge

One of the most famous bridges in the city for being the first bridge to link Buda and Pest.

There are several legends behind the famous bridge, my favorite tells that the lion sculptor forgot to sculpt his tongues and due to the teasing he committed suicide by throwing himself into the river Danube. However, it is only a legend since the tongues of the lions despite being complicated to see are there and that none of the facts that are commented on occurred.

Váci Utca

Váci Utca is the most visited street in the city as it is pedestrian street and has all kinds of shops and restaurants. At one end it is the Vorosmarty Square, at the other end you will find the Central Market of Budapest, the largest and most famous of the Pearl of the Danube.

Fisherman´s Bastion

Located on Buda Hill it is the best place to contemplate Budapest and The Parliament by far. The Bastion is a neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque terrace that has seven towers that represent the seven Magyar tribes that founded the country.

The best time to visit the viewpoint is at sunset and wait for the city to light up.

Paying you can access the towers where there is almost no one and you get the best views, but we had no idea about it and we accessed one of the towers through one of the exits. Later we realized that we had sneaked in ... No one noticed! 

Next to the Bastion is Matthias Church or Church of Our Lady, the most important Catholic church in the city where several Hungarian kings were crowned and also Worth a visit.
