“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”

“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. ”

“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.”
