Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is actually two cities in one: the older Buda on the west side and Pest on the east side. Between these two flows the Danube river: a sometimes calm and sometimes fierce river. Budapest has been declared a World Heritage which provides the city to be recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
In Budapest you can easily get everywhere by car or just by walking. The western Buda is quite hilly and the eastern Pest is flat. The city also has many transportation possibilities.
If you are only in Budapest for one or two days, we understand you want to see the best parts of the city. Because the Danube flows between Buda and Pest, a 1,5 hour boat tour is definitely recommended. Make sure you get an enthousiastic guide on your side and you will understand how the city is built in just the blink of an eye.
BUDA TO PEST
HISTORY AND CULTURE
The citadel of Buda is not on Unesco’s World Heritage for no reason. The fort that already exists for over 150 years provides you with a breathtaking view over the river. This place is perfect for walking and taking beautiful pictures.
