Most of the famous sights in Budapest are at a walking distance from each other.

Close to it, there is Budapest History Museum that will tell you many stories from the history of Hungary. Have your meal at one of the restaurants by the river and head to the Gellert Hill area where you will come across the attractions like Liberty Statue and Citadella. Enjoy a relaxing spa at Gellert Baths at evening.

Enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace of Fisherman’s Bastion is one of the best ways to start your day in Budapest. Capture the panoramic views of Danube River in your camera from this historical building. The Roman Catholic Church of Matthias can be your next stop. Look into the history of Hungary at Hospital in the Rock and the Military Museum. At evening you can cross the Chain bridge, one of the landmark bridges in Budapest on Danube River. Witness the unique shoe sculptures by the river and finally have a musical night and drinks at Otkert Night Club.
