overnight boat from Budapest to Vienna?

by Ric

About 20 years ago there was a regular ship (not a luxury cruise) that went from Budapest to Vienna. Is it still in operation and is there a website? Thanks!

Check schedules at the official site of the operator, Mahart Passnave: www.mahartpassnave.hu

It's a daytime boat, departing Budapest at 9.00, arriving at Vienna at 15:30

I don´t know about Budapest...I´ve never been there. But there is very nice, scenic route from Bratislava to Vienna by boat. Check schedule, prices etc. at www.twincityliner.com

That part (BA-Wien) scenic too, with Devin Castle and the panorama of Bratislava, and the some hills around, but the most interesting is the Danube Bend where the river breaks through two hill ranges. That's basically the Szentendre - Esztergom part, then comes the dull part, especially the Danube Channel with its locks isn't too interesting. Then from Bratislava it becomes more interesting again.

Obuda is the oldest part of the modern settlement of Buda-Pest, and is now considered the unfashionable district.Obuda also houses the city's Amber Market (a major source of trade income) and it's attendant craftsmen, which is open well into the night, and is a bustling part of the towns nightlife.

Artists at Vorosmarty Ter

by edvin_br

Vorosmarty is the most calssical square of Pest and one of the most elegant in Europe. In addition its also lacated at the end of the famous Vaci street. All off this bring here many tourists. Around the statues and the fountains you can find painter that will be happy to make your draw, there will be also street musicians and more... another man that i noticed in the square is an old person who is going around the square at the evenings and sell some special balloons fo 100 Forint....
All that things make the square a very colorful and pleasent place.

Kopaszi-gát

by bazsi79

The newest and already quite popular park in Budapest is on Kopaszi-gát in south Buda. The area used to be a dingy industrial zone, but has now been transformed into a beautiful green park. Inside you can find a restaurant, a café, playground for children, benches to relax and grass to sunbathe.

It is located just south of Lágymányosi bridge, on a peninsula between the river Danube and a small bay. The entrance is right at the bridgehead.

The park is open from 6:00 until 22:00 every day.

Getting there
By public transport, the best option is to take trams 4 or 6 to the Buda side of Petőfi bridge, and then walk south towards Lágymányosi bridge along the Danube (1 km, about 15 minutes). After you walk under the bridge, the entrance to the park is straight ahead.

If you're coming by car, cross the Danube to Buda on any of the bridges, and then follow the road along the river (Budai alsó rakpart) heading south until you get to Lágymányosi bridge. After the road passes under the bridge and turns right, the entrance to the park is straight ahead.

Harangvölgy-The Bell Valley

by 1courage

I have 2 favourite places in the forest.
The first one is the so called "Bell Valley" wich is about 700-800 metres from the Normafa. It`s absolutely amazing. As you can see on these images, there are no people around-you can see only some picknickers/hikers on weekdays. On weekdays there is a bit more traffic and people, mostly in the winter, when there is snow. You can approach is in 2 ways.
1. You can take the bus number 156 at the Moszkva square and go with it to the Zugliget (the final stop)
2. Or you can simply descend from the Normafa from the other direction (much easier and much more comfortable:) ).
