Cities and their landmarks are inseparable, and Budapest
can boast with some very powerful landmarks at that! Tour guides without a picture of say the Hero's Square
Millennium Monument or the Castle Hill
decorated by the Royal Palace, Fishermen's Bastion and Matthias Church just don't exist anymore! Want to see these beauties from hand's reach? Then below are listed the 10 unmissable landmarks of Budapest.
In first place is the Hero's Square
, considered the most beautiful square of the city with its majestic Millennium Monument erected to commemorate the Millennium of the Hungarian Conquest. In second place is the largest building of the country and symbol of the Hungarian state: the Houses of Parliament
Our next three picks, the Royal Palace
, Fishermen's Bastion
and Matthias Church
are the inseparable trio topping the Castle Hill. Decorating the other hill of the inner city, the Gellért Hil
l, is the Statue of Liberty
sometimes wittily referred to as Budapest's bottle opener!
The Chain Bridge
in seventh place is also a recurring motif of Budapest. At its foot stands our next pick, the glorious Gresham Palace
capturing oh so perfectly the essence of Hungarian Secessionism.
The St. Stephen's Basilica
with its cherished holy relic and the Opera House
with its famously good acoustics are also landmarks that contribute to why Budapest has been labelled the Pearl of the Danube.
