You will be picked up from your hotel and travel in a mini bus to see some of the major landmarks in the city.
The highlights of this tour are:
• Opera House: Designed and built in Renaissance style, it is a richly-decorated building and is considered one of the best opera houses in the world.
• Hero’s Square: One of the major squares of Budapest with two important buildings, Museum of Fine Arts on the left and Palace of Art (or Art Exhibition Museum) on the right.
• Millennium Memorial: There will be a short photo stop here. The central site of Hero’s square, the Millennium Memorial has statues of the leaders of the seven tribes that founded Hungary in the 9th century.
• Elizabeth Bridge: Connects Buda and Pest across the River Danube.
• Panorama to the Danube Bank with the famous public buildings
• View from Gellért Hill: There will be a short photo stop here. Rising steeply above the capital, Gellért Hill (Gellért- hegy) seems like a huge cliff, even though it is only 140 metres (430 feet) above the level of the river. Due to its height, it offers a peerless panorama of the entire city.
• Walk in the castle district
• Matthias Church: Which you will see from outside. This Gothic-style church was constructed between the 13th and the 15th centuries. Named after the greatest Hungarian king, Matthias Corvinus, many coronations have taken place here.
• Fishermen’s Bastion: It was built as a viewing platform in 1905.
• Margaret Bridge: Connecting Buda and Pest across the Danube. It is the second northernmost and second oldest public bridge in Budapest.
• Parliament: First you will go around the building on the bus, then enter the building to see the magnificent Neo-Gothic chambers and staircases. This building is home to the Holy Crown of Hungary. (Please note: Parliament reserves the right to stop visitors without notice during special events).
The tour ends in front of the Parliament.
