Budapest has several treasures which can be ranked among the bests. But its biggest treasure is undoubtedly its beautiful location.
The Castle Hill in Buda and the atmospheric public buildings of Pest lie on either side of a stretch of the Danube crossed by a group of bridges. We can enjoy the panorama from several places: from the terrace of the Castle Hill, the Sikló /funicular/, the top of the Gellért Hill, the railings of Margit Bridge,even the dome of St. Stephen Basilica.
The night has its special charm when the lights of the Chain Bridge are turned on and the spotlights make the beautiful buildings magnificent. Sights and experiences are available in full measure, enough to last for weeks. Important historical buildings are a must. Among these are the Castle District, Matthias Church, the Parliament, Heroes’ Square and its surroundings, the Opera House, the Basilica and the Synagogue.
