    Fisherman's Bastion

    51 reviews

    I love this place and its one of the most popular sites in the city. The present day lovely lookout towers / decorative fortification of Fisherman’s Bastion were built in the 19th century to serve as a lookout tower for the best panoramic views in Budapest. High up from the castle walls you can take fantastic photos of the city.

    45 reviews

    The Chain Bridge was one of the first things about Budapest that got my attention. Built in the mid-nineteenth century, the bridge helped cement two provincial towns, Buda and Pest, into a Hungarian super city.

On the second floor, there are some ready-made-food options, restrooms, and lots of shops selling touristy knick-knacks of all kinds.

    Opera House

    21 reviews

    The Opera House in Budapest is simply gorgeous. I saw "Salome" here, and there really isn't a bad seat in the house.

My advice is to close your ...

    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.
