Three Days in Budapest

Admire the Parliament Building and other historical buildings, taste local cuisine at Central Market Hall and relax in the world famous thermal baths.

After you explore the Hungarian Parliament, take a walk along the river. On the Danube riverbank, see the memorial commemorating the nearly four thousand citizens of Budapest who were killed by the Fascist Arrow Cross Party during World War II, and then head to Fisherman's Bastion and Matthias Church. Your next stop is probably the most iconic and recognizable landmark in Budapest - Buda Castle.

Your second day starts at St. Stephen's Basilica. Next, head to the Hungarian National Museum, the oldest of its kind in the entire country and a must-see for every history buff. Stop by at the Central Market Hall for a meal and cross the river to Gellért Baths, probably the most famous Art Nouveau spa, not only in Budapest but also in Europe. Relax after two exhausting days of sightseeing.

Your last day is reserved for exploring the City Park. Visit the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden, the Millenary Monument and the Apostle's Tower. If you feel like it, finish your trip at the Széchenyi Bath, one of the largest medical spa complexes in Europe with both indoor and outdoor pools.
