Castle Hill (Castle, Fishermen’s

Budapest’s Castle District abandons in great
historic attractions, interesting museums,
charming, crooked streets following the shape
of the hill, little cafés and restaurants. Besides
the monuments you get a breathtaking
panorama from of the Danube with the
Chain Bridge and the opposite Pest side.
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
Gellert Hill, Statue of Liberty and the
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
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.
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
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.
Start your trip from the Fővám tér market,
enjoy breakfast upstairs with the locals class:

Design Street. Its filled with interior design and
furniture stores, funky boutiques and modern
art galleries, and is quickly becoming a trendy

For day trips
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
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.
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
