Ljubljana – Budapest – Ljubljana
What to see if you only have 7 hours in Budapest.
So here are some facts about Budapest:
- Budapest was put together with the city of Buda + Pest in the 1970s
- Budapest is the 9th biggest city in the EU (not Europe, but EU)
- It has about 1,8 Million inhabitants
- Budapest makes 6th place on the list of the most European visited cities
- Budapest is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe
- Budapest is the capital of Hungary
- The part of Buda is famous for its Thermal Baths
So you definitely should visit one of the Thermal Baths Budapest is famous for.
Another great place to visit is Budapest castle which is really cool as it was build in not just one architectural style but it consists of pretty much all of them. So it has Gothic features just as ancient Roman, Renaissance, etc.
From the Castle it’s not far to the Hero Square. It’s a UNESCO world heritage and you can find different museums to your left and right. (And also a Tours Office if you are in need for one). The Hero Square is in the part of Pest.
St.-Stephen’s Basilika is also in the part of Pest and the biggest chruch of Budapest. It’s also part of the UNESCO world heritage. What’s so special about this chruch ? The right hand of King Stephen is housed in the reliquary inside the church. It’s creepy but cool at the same time.
Not far from the St. Stephen’s Basilika you can find the Bank of the Danube river. The parts Buda and Pest are conntected by several bridges but the Chain Bridge is the most famous.
Up on a hill 170m above Danube. From this spot you have an amazing view of the City especially at night.
Well, this is the place you want to be at at night. It’s the very top of the town and from you have a marvellous view of the citiy and its suspension bridges.
Definitely my favourite spot and a must go!
