Description

Start your tour at the famous St. Stephen's Basilica named after the first King of Hungary. Here, you will see its reliquary, its right hand! The Basilica is the third biggest church in Hungary, and one of the popular landmarks of Budapest. You will also find many pieces of fine arts here such as mosaics, statues, vault, tambourine, and paintings. Next, you will visit the House of Hungarian Art Nouveau. This museum is dedicated to the Hungarian Art Nouveau style. Every part of the building is a reminder of 20th-century creativity. Here you will see pieces of furniture, decorations and paintings. You will also notice that the outside, indoor as well as the little cafe on its first floor are furnished in a unique Hungarian style! As we continue, you will get to see the Hungarian Parliament Building. Located in Kossuth Square and close to the Danube, the Parliament is the largest building in the country! Built-in Gothic Revival and Renaissance Revival architecture styles, you will enjoy its outside look made of a beautiful façade and a central dome. Glass mosaics made by Miksa Róth and 242 sculptures on the walls will astonish you with their wonders. Walk on the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, the famous and first chain bridge of Budapest history, crossing the western and eastern sides of the city. It is a national symbol of advancement. At the time of its construction in the 19th century, the bridge was known as one of the modern world’s engineering wonders and had a lot of impact on the country’s life. Our next stop will be the Zero Kilometer Stone. This limestone of 3 meters high is a significant sculpture of Budapest. It marks the main point where all roads start from Budapest and go all over the country. You will find the inscription « KM » for kilometers at the bottom of this strange zero-shaped sculpture. You will then explore Buda Castle, a castle that was the home of Hungarian kings. Built-in 1265, it evolved in many styles in the 18th century, to become the massive Baroque palace we know today. Currently, this Royal Palace hosts the Hungarian National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum. The castle is surrounded by a wonderful area called the Castle Quarter. It is composed of many houses and monuments from medieval to neoclassical styles. A charming place to be, especially when we know Buda Castle is a World Heritage Site of Budapest. Here, you will also have a chance to see the Fisherman's Bastion. The bastion is located inside Buda Castle and is an important landmark of the city. Built between 1895 and 1902, it was made in a Neo-Romanesque style giving it all its beauty. From there, you will enjoy a wonderful panorama of the surroundings. Finally, you will visit the Matthias Church, located in the Holy Trinity Square, right in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion. You will enjoy its mystical Gothic style, knowing it was the second largest church of medieval Buda.
