Heroes Square and Andrássy street

The monument was built for the 1896

Millennium celebrations, when Hungary

celebrated the 1000th anniversary that its

ancestors found a place to settle down in the

Carpathian Basin. Since 2002 the Millennium

Monument together with Andrássy Avenue is

part of UNESCO’s prestigious World Heritage

sites.

Gellert Hill, Statue of Liberty and the

Citadel

Gellert Hill received its name after bishop

Gellért who came to Hungary from Italy around

1000 AD. St. Stephen King invited him to help

converting the Hungarians into Christianity.

Some resisting pagans rolled him down the hill

in a barrel into the Danube. The hill is a 140 m

high dolomite rock rising above the Danube in

Buda. According to the legend witches visited

the hill every night and were riding on the back

of a human being.

St. Stephen Basilica

Budapest’s neoclassical cathedral was

built over the course of half a century and

completed in 1905. Much of the interruption

had to do with the fiasco in 1868 when the

dome collapsed during a storm, and the

structure had to be demolished and rebuilt

from the ground up. The basilica is rather dark

and gloomy inside, but take a trip to the top

of the dome, which can be reached by lift and

146 steps and offers one of the best views in

the city.

Great Central Synagoge

The Great Synagogue is the largest Jewish

house of worship in the world outside New

York City and can seat 3000. Built in 1859

according to the designs of Frigyes Feszl, the

synagogue contains both Romantic-style and

Moorish architectural elements.

Parliament

The domed neo-Gothic structure was inspired

by the British House of Parliament and serves

as both a vibrant government centre and a

proud city landmark on the banks of the

Danube.

Antique and art shops

+ a walk on Margaret Island

A 5-minute-walk from the Parliament will take

you to Falk Miksa street famous for quality

antique and contemporary art shops.

Afterwards take a walk on Margaret Island

where quiet walkways, flower gardens,

romantic ruins and century-old trees make up

a popular recreation spot.

Shopping day

Start your trip from the Fővám tér market,

enjoy breakfast upstairs with the locals class:

try sausage and tepertő (dripping) as well as

pickled cucumber, then continue on Váci utca

to shop. Enjoy lunch in Gerlóczy or Dunacorso

restaurants (see our restaurant section). Walk

on to Király utca also known as Budapest’s

Design Street. Its filled with interior design and

furniture stores, funky boutiques and modern

art galleries, and is quickly becoming a trendy

part of Budapest.

For day trips

Szentendre

Szentendre is a town that has changed little in

appearance since the 18th century. A special

little town with possibly too much tourists

on summer days. Worth visiting for those

interested in museums, galleries, artists,

souvenir shops. Take the 40 minute train ride

from the Margaret Bridge Buda side (look for

HÉV).

Lake Balaton

Lake Balaton, often called the ‘Hungarian

Sea’, is the country’s substitute for a

coastline, a place where many locals and

tourists escape summer heat. At 78km long,

15km across at its widest Europe and covering

600 sq km, it’s Europe’s largest body of fresh

water and an aqua-playground big enough to

cater to most holiday-makers.

Trains run to Balatonfüred or Siófok hourly from

Déli pályaudvar. Within 2 hours you can enjoy

the biggest sweet water lake of Europe.

Eger

Everyone loves Eger, and it’s immediate

apparent why: the beautifully preserved

baroque architecture gives the town a relaxed,

almost Mediterranean, feel; it is the home of the

celebrated Egri Bikavér (Eger Bull’s Blood) wine

known the world over; and it is flanked by two of

the Northern Uplands most inviting ranges. But

these aren’t the only reasons Hungarians visit

Eger: it was here that their forebears fended off

the Turks for the first time during the 170 years

of occupation in 1552.

Trains run to Eger hourly from Keleti pályaudvar

station.
