Budapest River Cruise, A City of Two Halves
Visit Budapest on a Danube River cruise and experience this spectacular city for yourself. Getting here couldn't be simpler, as your cruise ship docks in the port allowing you to arrive, hassle-free, before you begin to cover all the many things to do, see and experience in this historic city.
Budapest is a destination to consider if you’re in the market for a cost-conscious getaway – a simply stunning city of two halves, Buda and Pest, complete with a cheap public transport system, and free entry to cultural locations such as the Royal Palace and Fisherman’s Bastion. Combined with excellent Hungarian food from Central Market Hall, and drink prices and shopping that will cost less than back in the UK, Hungary's capital makes for a reasonably-priced but cultural city break.
Taking a walking tour will give you the opportunity to really explore this beautiful city.
Visit Sandor Palace, the President’s Office and the adjacent National Dance Theatre, which was originally built as a church in 1736. Continue your tour to Holy Trinity Square, and Matthias Church, where numerous royal coronations have taken place. Then head over to Fisherman's Bastion - you will be in for a treat if you decide to pay to climb the towers, because the views over the city are breath-taking. This is a destination that will wow you from the moment you arrive, so make the most of its numerous cafes, bars and restaurants. Rest your weary feet, sip a coffee or cocktail, and people watch as Budapest’s residents and visitors pass by. Once you get your second wind, it’s time to get going again and view the architectural and cultural treats that are around every corner.
