Between the many festivals, historical landmarks and the beautiful natural sights there are many things to do and many places to see in Budapest. Here are some of the places you should see when you’re visiting.
As one of the oldest historical and cultural points of Budapest, the castle was built on a hill on the Danube. The Hungarian Military Museum, where 28,000 artifacts from the 15th century are exhibited, is also in the castle complex. If you’re adventurous, you might want to check the mysterious labyrinth underneath the building, too. The castle is a great example of neo-gothic architecture and Hungarian history.
Gellért Hill is a 235 meters high hill with a view of the Danube River. The name of the hill comes from the death of St. Gerard, who was thrown off the hill to his death. Gellért Hill Cave is also a natural wonder.
The Parliament Building, located on the banks of the Danube River, was built between 1885 and 1902 in Pesté. The majestic building, home to the sessions of the Hungarian National Assembly, was designed at the same height as St. Stephen's Basilica to symbolize the balance between religion and state affairs.
The Neo-Renaissance basilica, which offers an exquisite view of the city from the dome that can be reached by elevator, evokes admiration with its ceiling decoration. In addition, many religious items are exhibited in the treasury section, including the sacred right hand of the Hungarian king.
The fisherman's bastion, which is considered one of the most beautiful structures in the city with traces of Neo-Gothic architecture, was built in the years 1899-1905 under the supervision of Architect Frigyes Schulek. In 896, 7 towers were added to represent the leaders of the Hungarian tribes who came to the Carpathian Basin. These towers offer spectacular views of the city.
