Our popular hop on hop off sightseeing tours, available in over 100 cities, are finally here in Budapest too!
The capital of Hungary, crossed by the great river Danube was founded 2,000 years ago. In this splendid city you cannot miss the opportunity to see the famous Parliament building which is one of the best known in Europe for being the third largest in the world. Another equally important monument Buda Castle, formally the residence of the Hungarian royalty and the Chain Bridge, the oldest and most famous bridge along the Danube River are also sights you won’t want to miss. For the best view of the city you’ll want to visit the Citadel, although historically constructed as building surveillance, today it is a major attraction for tourists. And don’t forget the Jewish Synagogue which is the world’s largest after that of Israel.
For lovers of art and history the most important museums in the city are the Museum of Fine Arts, the Holocaust Memorial Centre, the Hungarian National Museum and the Hungarian National Gallery.
One essential activity for any tourist visiting Budapest is to do a river cruise along the Danube where you’ll get amazing views of the city, especially the Parliament. Our customers can enjoy, from Dock Number 10, a 1 hour river cruise with City Sightseeing.
Alternatively, if you want to relax you definitely have to go to Szechenyi Baths, famous for being one of the largest thermal spa waters in Europe.
In the afternoon and evening the city offers plenty of shows to attend, representing all art and folklore of the country, reflecting its music, dance and cultural characteristics. Traditionally the gastronomy of this company is known for its generous use of spices especially paprika and onion. The typical dish is goulash soup which consists of meat, vegetables and paprika.
For shopping it is essential that you head to the street of Vaci Utca where you will find all kind of stores and malls or Andrassy Avenue which has an important commercial centre. For a slightly different shopping experience we also recommend that you visit the Central Market which is the most beautiful in the city.
This city is beautiful day and night, even a little more so at night with a light show in its most iconic places such as Parliament, the Opera Building and Heroes Square. Like many European cities, you will find great nightlife in Budapest, choosing among restaurants, small bars, nightclubs and taverns.
