Budapest in One Day Top Attractions

The Best of Budapest in One Day

With this itinerary you can see the top attractions of Budapest and be sure that you have covered all of the most important sites. The itinerary takes you easily from attraction to attraction and includes must-see sites like the Chain Bridge, House of Parliament, St Stephens Basilica, National Opera House and the Central Market. It also leaves time to enjoy one of the city’s world-class museums the Hungarian National Museum.

Budapest, one of Europe’s most densely populated cities, and certainly one of its prettiest, is packed with places of cultural and historical importance, making this a traveler’s dream destination. Located on the Danube River, Budapest also has no less than 80 geothermal springs which attract visitors from far and wide who come seeking their healing qualities. Budapest’s most important sights seem almost too numerous to mention. Perhaps the best place to begin a trip to this city is to visit the Hungarian National Museum, housed in a neoclassic building, and holding one of the most important collections of historical artefacts and artworks. The magnificence of the Royal Palace has to be seen to be believed. Established in the middle of the 13th century, the opulent palace is now home to the Castle Museum, the National Szechenyi Library and the Hungarian National Gallery. Christianity has always played an important part in Budapest’s history, and its influence can be seen in cathedrals such as the Basilica of St Stephen with great views from the top of its dome. Budapest was once home to over 200,000 Jews, one of the largest Jewish communities in the world, and their rich heritage can be seen through the stunning Great Synagogue in Romantic and Moorish style, and the Jewish Quarter located in the city center. To commemorate the tragic fate of Budapest’s Jews during the Holocaust (where over half of the population was murdered), the Shoes on the Danube memorial on the Pest embankment is a must-see. Other city attractions include Momento Park, a socialist inspired collection of statues, busts and plaques of famous people in history such as Lenin and Karl Marx. The House of Terror is not for the faint-hearted. Once the headquarters of the secret police, this building features reconstructed prison cells and rooms where so many activists were tortured during the last century.

This plan takes into consideration the fact that card holders skip most of the infamous long lines, which means that you can actually do and see more.

If you enjoy Walking or Biking, and Budapest All in One Walking Tour and Budapest Night Stroll and Boat Cruise are great ways to explore Budapest.
