Description

Explore Budapest by night from the comfort of our coach. Your guide will show you the charms of this capital city with its turbulent but incredibly rich past. Despite the vicissitudes of history, Budapest has managed to preserve and bear witness to a succession of dynasties and civilisations.We’ll start off towards the castle or the citadel for an impressive view over the city and on Pest. Marvel at the famous Parliament Building and the Chain Bridge before moving on to Heroes’ Square. In the center, admire a beautiful statue depicting Prince Arpad and the Seven Chieftains of the Magyar tribes. Behind them, the most important historical figures of the country stand in a half-circle, such as Stephen I, the first Christian King of Hungary. We’ll continue on towards the City Park where we’ll take a stroll in the grounds of Vajdahunyad Castle, a fairytale-like medieval castle with turrets and a drawbridge that was actually built out of wood and cardboard for the millennium exhibition of 1896, as a means to show visitors the rich architectural past of Hungary. However, the castle was such a success that it was rebuilt from more perennial materials in 1904. Before we go back on board, our coach will drive along the Danube so you can enjoy once again the wonderful view over Buda, the Castle Quarter and the Fishermen’s Bastion. Return on board.
