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.

The Budapest’s Icon

Hungarian Parliament

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 Batthyány Tér on the other bank.
