Description

We are taking you to Budapest, the capital of Hungary located on the beautiful Danube! Its history begins in 1873 by merging Buda, located on the right bank of the Danube and Pest, on the left bank. We start our journey by visiting the city center and exploring some of the most important sites in Budapest.

The building of the Hungarian Parliament is one of the most recognizable buildings in Budapest, built in the neo-Gothic style, and its size ranks among the three largest parliament buildings in the world. It is interesting to know that this building, along with the Basilica of St. Stjepan, "stands out" from the rest of the city with its height of 96 m, which sends a message about the importance of public administration and religion. It is forbidden by the law for any building to be taller than these two.

Budapest is also home to the largest synagogue in Europe, that can accommodate about 3,000 people, and was built in the Oriental style.

A walk along Andrassy Avenue provides an insight into the different architectural styles of this beautiful place, and due to its beauty, in 2002 it was included in the list of protected national monuments. At the end of the Avenue there is the Heroes' Square, known for one of the most important monuments of the city, seven Hungarian leaders on horseback.

Near the square, there is the Vajdahunyad Castle from 1896. Surrounded by a magnificent park and lake, it is one of the most fabulous places in Budapest. According to legend, its original purpose was exclusively for exhibition content, and for its needs it was made of wood and cardboard. However, the castle became so popular that they eventually turned it into today's building.

Apart from Vajdahunyad, another famous castle is the Buda Castle from the 13th century, located on the west side of the Danube. It is surrounded by numerous fountains, statues and fortresses overlooking the city, and due to its uniqueness, it is included on the UNESCO list.

The Citadel Fortress on Gellert Hill, built during the Habsburg Monarchy to control possible revolts in the city during the Hungarian Revolution, also serves as a kind of lookout. Today, the fortress has a cafe and restaurant where you can relax with a fascinating view of the city.

Another fortress that offers a magnificent view of the city is the Fisherman's Bastion. It consists of seven towers symbolizing the seven Hungarian tribes, and were built in the Neo-Gothic style.

Opposite the fortress is the famous Matthias Church or Matthias Church, which was founded in 1015 by the first king of Hungary, whose name it bears. The king married twice and organized both of his weddings in this church, which is why it later became synonymous with royal weddings and coronations.

In addition to these attractions, Budapest offers a handful of other facilities, from cruising the Danube with the best panorama of the city, to the famous desserts at the Marzipan Museum and Gerbeaud confectionery, and so much more.

We end our trip by visiting Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe, which is today one of the favorite tourist destinations.
