Attractions in Budapest

What is it that attracts tourists to Budapest? It's without a doubt these top 10 attractions, many of which are also on the UNESCO World heritage list. Characterised by history, amazing architecture and larger crowds of gaping tourists, they are definitely the sight not to be missed on a visit to Budapest.

Our first pick is the Gellért Hill; with a panorama including the city's main attractions and leaving no doubt about why the city was entitle "The Pearl of the Danube".

Our next two picks are the River Danube and its embankment known as Duna Korzo. It is because of the Danube and the Buda Hills that Budapest has such a complex cityscape. In fourth place is the Chain Bridge, the oldest bridge spanning the river, an element without which the picture would not be complete.

The huge palace-like building of the Parliament is a national symbol representing the golden era of the country.

The Castle District overlooking the river topped with the majestic Royal Palace preserves the medieval structure of the old town. Magical.

The Hero's Square and Andrássy Avenue ensemble is a gem of the inner city, built for the Millennium Celebration of 1896.

Our next pick is the Széchényi Bath. Budapest is also known as the city of water, so not having the grandest of bath houses on the top 10 list of attraction would be a sin.

Last but not least, the city's Architecture dating back to the 19th century. Walking around the inner city, one piece of advice: look up. The streets are lined by monumental buildings and architectural masterpieces characterised by the city's signature style, Secessionism.
