    Parliament Building

    81 reviews

    Tours of the Parliament are held frequently, but reservations are highly recommended. My favorite part about this building is the exquisite marble featured inside, as well as the unbelievable views of the Danube you can see from the Parliament's balconies. It's worth learning the history behind it, too, as you'll get to appreciate the giant balls of iron that are ...

    We stayed on the Pest side of the Danube. This seems to be the more active area at least for tourists. The major hotels are along the river with great view of the river and Buda. Nice to walk around day or night.

    The ancient part of the city with an elaborate network of tunnels underneath. Be sure to check them out. There's evidence of people hiding in them from the Roman through the Nazi and Stalinist periods.

    Margaret Island

    24 reviews

    Margit Island is wonderful place to spend time on during the summer. There's a water park, a small zoo, and you can rent bikes and ride around the tree-lined streets for a couple hours. There are also big park spaces, so pack a lunch and set up under a tree. Some people sunbathe on the island's stone banks, but the ...

    Vaci Utca is one of Budapest's main pedestrian thoroughfares and a great place for shopping.

    Great Synagogue

    19 reviews

    Due to timing problems we did not go into this lovely Synagogue but just seeing the exterior alone is extremely impressive. Two great domes catch the color of the sunsets and are magestic and beautiful. Also houses the Jewish Museum and a fountain memorial garden for Holocaust victims.

    Opera House

    20 reviews

    The intimate, old setting was awesome. We got cheap tickets up in the balcony for Madame Butterfly and the acoustics and view were great. Beautiful time, lots of last minute student types showed up and sat in the aisles and steps around us. It was pure magic. Great acoustics, impressive history, opulent decor. Cheap drinks at intermission. Beautiful.

    Gellért Baths

    Excellent co-ed baths at an affordable price and not too far from the Old Town Historic District. This is a place where you can spend an entire day since there are so many things to see and do and it is really huge.
