Take a boat trip on the majestic Danube and see the great bridges and other sights. If a city trip is not enough for you, just carry on to Vienna!
Nothing shows a city as from the water. Especially romantic at night when the bridges are lit up. :)
Unlike the blue color of the Danuba on the Austrian side, In Budapest the running water looks more like green. But the view from all sides is impressive, that the water's color became meaningless after a while.
The Danube river bisects the city into two different parts: the hilly and more peaceful Buda on the right side, and the buzzing Pest on the left.
Both river banks offer many sights: right at the start of your Danube cruise the graceful tower of the Matthias Church and the Fishermen's Bastion draw your eyes to historic Castle District.
Further up the building of Budapest Parliament dominates the Pest shore.
At the north end of Margaret Island the ship turned and went down the river as far as the National Theatre at the Pest end of the Lágymányosi Bridge.
The fine building of the Gresham Place - today an exclusive luxury hotel - stands at the Pest end of the Chain Bridge.
The doloimit rock of the Gellért Hill towered above the water between Elizabeth Bridge (Erzsébet híd) and Liberty Bridge (Szabadság híd).
The modern-style National Theatre marked the final attraction of our excursion on the Danube.
Enjoyed every minute of the dance and the veiws as we floated along the danube.
It was reasonably price for the cruise and entertainment and the food was fantastic local cuisine.
Everyone was friendly and it can be done by lone travellers, i had no problems. You are allocated a table, although with people you don't know but know each other - i had no problems enjoying the evening.
Only one thing though, watch out for how long meat & dairy products are left unchilled on the table. On my trip they were standing too long for my comfort, so i advoided them but i had no problem with the variety of local dishes - very tasty.
We took a Danube dinner cruise while there. As I've said before, Hungarian cuisine was amazing. Dinner was great, the weather (for March) was fair and the sights of the Parliament Building and the bridges were lovely all lit up at night.
Dinner cruise on the Danube, while viewing the sparkling panorama of Buda and Pest, what could be better?
The Roman-bank start from Újpest railway bridge to Pünkösdfürdõ ship station. It is a popular place for water sports.
When you start your ship tour from Roman-bank to north first you see the beautiful greenLupa-island with lots of cottage.
It's a bit touristy but it's a must do! To take a cruise down the Duna with some wine is a romantic experience. The red lights are just a bit too cheesy but, oh well...
Nice views. You should take this tour when the sun is going to set. You see the city from the river on daylight and lights of the night also. Really awesome!
