Walking city tours are the best options to explore the real aspect of Budapest.
See the most visited sights of the Hungarian capital, explore the hidden cultural treasures, and enjoy the ambience of Budapest.
These tours start and end in the centre of city in general, but upon your request transfer can be provided from and to your hotel.
There are many chances to explore Budapest on the basis of your interest.
I have many suggestions, but maybe you have your own ideas, your own wishes, but without knowing the city it might be a bit difficult to make those wishes come true. I've been working as a tour guide in Budapest for a long time now, so I know most of the corners and the details of this beautiful city.
I can suggest you a perfect day in the fascinating Hungarian capital.
During this city tour we go through the most amazing and historical sights of Pest and Buda. On the Pest side we visit the impressive Heroes’ Square where you get an explanation about the Millennium Monument and its museums. The millennial monument was built in 1896 to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the arrival of Hungarians in the Carpathian Basin. The monument consists of two semi-circles on the top of which the symbols of War and Peace, Work and Welfare, Knowledge and Glory can be seen. The niches are decorated by the statues of kings, governors and famous characters of the Hungarian history. At the foot of each statue a small relief depicts the most important moment of the life of the personality. In the middle of Heroes' square stands a 36 metres high Corinthian column with the statue of Archangel Gabriel on the top, the symbol of the Roman Catholic religion. You can have enough free time to take photos. The City Park behind the square has many sights, too: one of the most famous restaurants of Hungary Gundel, Széchenyi Spa, Grand Circus, Zoo, Amusement Park and the scenic Vajdahunyad Castle.
The tour continues along the Andrássy Avenue (UNESCO World Heritage) where we pass by some mansions of former aristocrats, former Music Academy and the Hungarian State Opera House. The Andrássy Avenue is a 2,310-metre boulevard lined with buildings in uniform architecture and linking the City Centre with the City Park.
Then, we visit the St Stephen’s Cathedral and you see the magnificent neo-Gothic Parliament building. It is located on the bank of the Danube, serves as the permanent seat of the National Assembly. The building complex, the biggest of its kind in Hungary, was erected between 1884 and 1904.
After crossing the Danube River we arrive in the Castle District of Buda (UNESCO World Heritage) that used to be the capital of Hungary for several hundred years. In this historical part of Buda you have chance to visit the neo-Gothic Matthias Church, the most beautiful and most well-known Catholic church in Budapest, which thanks to its outstanding location largely determines the image of the Castle District, as seen from the Pest side. Officially named as the Church of Our Lady, this royal cathedral was erected in multiple steps (between the 13th and 15th centuries). It gained its present-day neo-Gothic form in 1896, following a major reconstruction overseen by Frigyes Schulek. You can take a view of the Danube and the Pest side from the Fisherman’s Bastion. It was only constructed between 1895-1902. It is named after the fishermen’s guild because according to customs in the Middle Ages this guild was in charge of defending this part of the castle wall. As a matter of fact it has never had a defending function. The architect was Frigyes Schulek, who planned the building in neo-gothic style. The seven towers symbolize the seven chieftains, who conquered the land for the Hungarians. The Fisherman’s bastion greatly contributes to the cityscape and offers a breathtaking panorama on the Pest side. In front of the Fisherman's bastion, the equestrian statue depicts our first king, St Stephen. The Matthias Church and the Fisherman's bastion are the most beloved sights of the Buda Castle District.
Of course, we’ll have a 10-15 min. WC and refreshments break where you can buy snacks and drinks (hot and cold)
During the whole day program you will have the opportunity to have lunch in a typical Hungarian restaurant.
You may not know these places or you haven’t even heard about them. No problem at all. Believe me, I will show you the famous and captivating sites of the city, but much more -if you rely on me!!! You will see the hidden treasures of Budapest, too. I will show you the special places and things that make Budapest great.
