The city looks great at night and the views take your mind off the traffic noise completely. If you're feeling lazy take the No2 tram which runs alng the Pest side of the river.
Great chance to take a few piccies as well.
This photo was taken at night although its even more beautiful in the day time by boat- The Duna Bela Tour is a daytime sightseeing cruise. The boat ride consists of a one or two hour guided tour through the Danube river, which flows all along the centre of Budapest, and bisects the city into two districts, ‘Buda’ characterised by its rising hills, and ‘Pest’, known for its plains.
Tours can be arranges on the web
The Legenda Cruise leaves after dark and takes about one hour.
You get about a 25% discount with your Budapest Card. The trip is very reasonably priced. When you arrive you receive sparkling wine then a drink of your choice half way through.
The trip includes a commentary in the language of your choice (headphones). It gives a brief history of Budapest while watching the dramatic backdrop of the Castle floodlit at night.
The banks of the Danube at night are beautiful. The lights and the majestic buildings give it an air of regalness that is missing in some other capitol cities.
I enjoyed walking from the chain bridge all the way up to the North entrance of Vaci Utica at night. I would them walk back down through VU to look at people.
The night life is Budapest is quite good. If you enjoy good music and drinks, there are a few discos around, and the crowd is really young. The girls are beautiful, and entry is not a problem, as long as you pay the entry fee.
Like most bautiful cities when the sun goes down, the lights come on. All the major buildings are beautifully lit and have another dimension of beauty to them.
The 99% of Budapest is really outside the Castle and Chain Bridge Area -- but this time we made this excursion with Zoli to the National Library and shot some photos...
See Budapest at night. Its safe for the most part...beautifull and serene.
The moon came up one clear night and it was almost shocking how BIG and bright it was...
