Budapest sightseeing

Hungary's capital is rich in historical buildings, monuments, museums and various other sights. Thanks to Budapest's excellent public transportation network, practically all prominent sights can be quickly accessed from anywhere in town.

It is best to start exploring the city on the Buda side and to continue our walk on the Pest side after having crossed one of the city's most beautiful bridges.

Sightseeing - Buda Castle: Best Budapest Dentist .comOne of Budapest's most famous and often visited tourism sites is the Buda Castle. As a part of the UNESCO world heritage, the area offers many sights, museums, atmospheric streets and squares, restaurants, and shops. This is also where you will find the Matthias Church, the Sándor Palace, the Royal Palace, the Buda Castle labyrinth, and the Fisherman's Bastion, where you can enjoy an unparalleled view of the city. After your walk in the castle, it is worth making your descent from the hill using the funicular to Adam Clark Square. From here you can walk across to the Pest side on Europe's oldest suspension bridge, the Chain Bridge.

A dominant sight on the Pest side of the Danube is the over one hundred year old building of the Parliament, which has come to be a symbol for the capital. Behind the Parliament you will see the tower of Budapest's largest ecclesiastical building, the Saint Stephen's Basilica. Directly by the Pest-side bridgehead of the Chain Bridge you will find the commanding building of the Hungarian Academy of Science with the Secessionist style Gresham Palace situated right next to it, where one of Budapest's most elegant five star hotels operates. These magnificent sights are complemented by the row of Danube-side hotels and the tarnished buildings of the Vigadó (Concert Hall).

Sightseeing - Heroes' Square: Best Budapest Dentist .comThe city's largest square, Heroes' Square, with the Millennial Monument in its center is located at the end of Andrássy Avenue. You will find the Museum of fine Arts on one side of the square, and the Palace of Arts on the other. The latter offers seasonal exhibitions all year round. Behind Heroes' square lies the picturesque City Park Lake inviting visitors to boat rides in the summer time and ice skating in the wintertime. The area of the City Park is also one of Budapest's popular tourist attractions thanks to its numerous entertainment and cultural institutions. Some of these are the Budapest Zoo, the Amusement Park, the City Circus, the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, and the Vajdahunyad Castle.

This little virtual tour only serves as a guide to those who have never been to Budapest before. Since there are so many sights to see, it can be quite difficult to find your way around town, so it is worth taking part in a tour of the city by bus or boat.
