Budapest by Night, Budapest
You can leave Budabest without see it during the night. It's wonderful!!!! All the places and monuments are full of light!!! I suggest to you yo stay near the Danube and the Chain Bridge, on the Pest side, if you want to see the Royal Castle in all its buauty!!! The Chain Bridge is fantastic in the evening!!!
A very great experience!!!!!
You can find more photos of Budapest by night on my travelugue
Just walk along the riverside by night from the Szabadsag hid (Liberty Bridge) to the Lanchid (Chain Bridge) and see the beauty of Budapest. The lights make more beautiful Budapest at night.
On the picture You can see the Buda Castle and the Chain Bridge.
By night You can see a Cross on the south-east side of the Gellert hill. Below this Cross (on the picture: in the middle) there is a Cave-chapel inside the Gellert hill which was developed after the First World War and was consecrated on 23rd May 1926.
There is the Hotel Gellert on the left side and the Szabadsag hid (Liberty Bridge) no the right side.
The lights make Budapest more beautiful. Just walk along the riverside from the Szabadsag hid (Liberty Bridge) to the Lanchid (Chain Bridge) and enjoy the sight!
From left to right, You can see the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, the Hotel Gellert and the Gellert hill with the Liberty Statue on the top.
After eating a lovely dinner (Gulash) with lots of paprika, having a wonderful dessert with red wine--it was a long dinner since musicians started playing Hungarian music and I just couldn't leave the place--I took a midnight stroll. As you can see by the Christmas tree, this was during the Christmas season.
This view showing the Chain Bridge from Roosevelt ter in all its elegant glory is only possible during wintertime, the shoreline trees having lost their leaves then.
It is quite difficult for wheelchair users to get closer to the shore from the level that Roosevelt ter and also the Danube Promenade are on.
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 Sunday night we were there the bridge was closed to car traffic so we were able to take a quiet and leisurly stroll across the Danube. The bridge itself is beautiful especially at night when it is all lit up. And the sights from the bridge such as Parliament, Matthias Church, and the Palace are breathtaking.
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.
Our friend and guide I, tok us to see the Buscolo Hotel. He said we simply must see it because it is so beautiful at night. He was right...the hitel is beautifully illuminated and was worth the walk.
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.
We could not enter to the Buda Castle for luck of time, but the night after leaving the city we watch the castle iluminated. It was a lovely look.
While the trams in Budapest provide easy transportation, be sure walk across the bridges and enjoy the Danube. The Chain Bridge has a nice pedistrian walk way.
The views from Castle Hill are fantastic by night and well worth a good hour gazing at the skyline. The perfect place for couples.
