Description

Budapest is a subtle blend of sophistication and simplicity. With the “gentle waves” of the Danube separating the city into Buda and Pest, its long history engulfs every street and every corner, offering you the experience of a lifetime. Budapest has the oldest underground railway in continental Europe, which was built in 1896 and still makes an active part of the public transportation system of Budapest. The trains and stations have been restored according to their original look. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage. Discover the Royal Andrassy Avenue. Have a glimpse of St. Stephen’s Basilica, the third largest church of Hungary, named after the first King of the country and whose right hand is kept in the reliquary of the St. Right Chapel. Pass the Danube Promenade, passing by the pedestrian area on Vaci Street. Enjoy the view of the river that divides Buda from Pest. Go across the Chain Bridge, the oldest permanent bridge of the 8 bridges of Budapest and learn the story of the tongue of the lions that are guarding the entrance of it from both sides. On the Buda side, we will see the Castle Hill Funicular. If you decide to go to the castle with the funicular (payment not by guide), it will provide for a panoramic ride up to the Buda Palace. It is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list just like the whole Castle area. Once we arrive, we’ll get a bird’s eye view of the Danube and the Pest side of the city. Overall, this bohemian city has a fin-de-siècle feel to it, as most of the buildings you will see today were built in the late 19th century, the so-called “golden age” of the Hungarian Capital.
