Castle
“It is a huge palace with beautifully landscaped gardens and statues. Various viewpoints provide lots of photo opportunities of this amazing city, the Danube and its busy waterway, the Chain Bridge and other nearby and equally beautiful bridges. It's very touristy obviously yet doesn't feel overwhelmed and everyone gets to have a good view one time or another”

Church
“St Stephen’s Basilica of Budapest is one of the most beautiful and significant churches and touristic attractions of the country. This is partly due to its historical heritage, of being dedicated to the holy king St Stephen who was also the founder of the Hungarian state, and partly to the architectural and artistic value of the building itself. ”

Outdoor Sculpture
“The Shoes on the Danube Bank is a memorial statue by film director Can Togay and sculptor Gyula Pauer, created to honour the people killed by Fascist militiamen in Budapest during World War II. The installation is made up of 60 pairs of period-appropriate iron shoes, representing the victims who had to take their shoes off before execution, leaving them behind on the riverbank. On cast iron plaques alongside, the following text is written in Hungarian, English and Hebrew: “To the memory of the victims shot into the Danube by Arrow Cross militiamen in 1944–45. Erected 16 April 2005”. In 2017 the statue was ranked second among the world’s most fascinating public sculptures by America’s prestigious Architectural Digest magazine.”

“As one of Budapest's postcard superstars, Fishermen's Bastion on Castle Hill is admired by virtually every Budapest visitor, but not everyone realizes that this is also a popular restaurant. Named Halászbástya ("Fishermen's Bastion" in Hungarian), this elegant eatery boasts incredible views over all of downtown and beyond, while the structure's grand arches almost beg us to eat here. From the tiny upstairs balcony reached by climbing a narrow spiral staircase, we see every prominent building of the Pest cityscape, some of which are much more beautiful when illuminated in the evening. The kitchen features innovative Hungarian flavors, perfectly fitting the historic ambience. Traditional regional dishes are created in accordance with expectations of modern cuisine, all served with fine-dining style. We ordered goat cheese polenta soufflé in raspberry-vinegar beetroot soup with English celery (2,860 HUF), ricotta-flavored potato dumplings (2,860 HUF), butter-fried sea bass with grilled shrimp and homemade noodles (6,500 HUF), the duck selection (5,460 HUF), and a cup of Somlói cream (2,340 HUF) for dessert.”

“Budapest has become one of Europe's favourite short-break destinations. And for a myriad of good reasons. Vibe, culture and romance is all around. Through the middle runs the Danube, lights from illuminated bridges dancing at its surface. The hills of Buda rear from the western bank, home to the cobbled medieval quarter with its grand palace and multi-coloured Matthias Church and the peculiar Fisherman's Bastion. Across the river sits the magnificent domed Parliament building and around it the elegant 19th-century mansions that today contain the shops, bars and cafés that give Pest its buzz. No matter what you have on mind from submerging in the world famous Szechenyi Spa or treating yourself with a tasty traditional Hungarian dish to discovering 1000 years of history and culture or hanging out in one of the unique Budapest style ruin pubs you'll find everything you need to enjoy yourself in this magnificent city.”
