Spend One Day And Night In

Budapest

Being day or night, the Hungarian capital city attracts thousands of visitors every day to go through its World Heritage sites and magnificent architecture. The Pearl of the Danube lives all year round with sightseeing, festivals and food. We’ll explore both parts, Buda and Pest, from the morning until midnight.

Willflies, Willflies. Whether you’re a fan of history or fancy great views, this basilica in the city centre has you covered. It also houses one of the most sacred Hungarian treasures, a mummified hand of St. Stephen. This UNESCO site, a former complex of the Hungarian kings, is now home to Budapest History Museum. Walking upstream of the Danube river, you can find the spired Fisherman’s Bastion. The Liberty Monument and fortress Citadella overlook the city from this hill. Visiting the top at night not only rewards you with a great impression but also makes this usually crowded place free.

Right At Midnight

Gellért Hill

The Liberty Monument and fortress Citadella overlook the city from the Gellért hill. Visiting the top at night not only rewards you with a great impression but also makes this usually crowded place free. Halfway to the top, you can find a statue of St. Gellért.

Országház

The Parliament, built in the Gothic Revival style, is the most photographed landmark in the country. Its violet roof and rich decorated facade make it stand out on the river bank. The best spot to take photos is from the opposite embankment.
