Most modern urban planners lucky enough to have rivers and shorelines available have worked to incorporate embankments and river walks into their city-scapes. It is appropriate that this is called the "Embankment" because it calls to mind London's Thames Embankment. Wonderful vistas, public art installations and cafes, this is a great way to spend a few minutes or hours.

Was a bit cold during my stay there - but the embankment that ran alongside the Danube was a great place to walk. Walked all the way until we reached the Parliament - quite a distance! Very open spacious pavement; would have enjoyed it even further if not for the cold weather!

This is a must-do for every local and tourist every once in a while. This stretch of the Danube bank offers a wonderful panorama over Buda, including Gellért Hill, the Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle, Matthias Church with the marvelous Danube inbetween. For visually impaired, there is a 2 meter long brass 3D replica of the panorama with explanation in... More

Duna-Korzo is a nice street on the Danube's banks good for relaxing walks on sunny days. Great photo opportunities, beautiful views with the river and Buda Castle, nice statues, fountains and some elegant buildings. A lot of terraces and restaurants to stop and have a meal or a drink.

We were about to take the tram n.2 and we accidentally saw this. Obviously it's worth to take more pics with the statue and others statues nearby!

Currently here in Budapest and it hasn't stopped raining!. However with pleanty of waterproofs we braved the rain and walked along this scenic route. Ok so it was slightly grey and not as picturesque as the photos in the tour books but the statue of Korzo was something we passed on our travels, just beautiful.

Food was good and view was unbeatable. They had live music part of the time as well - very enjoyable! The walk on the embankment felt quite safe so don't be concerned.

Combined with a visit to the Parliament building nearby, the Duna Korzo is guaranteed to make you smile, despite the somewhat sombre 'shoes memorial'. The views across the wide river are quite breathtaking. Interesting sculptures dot the walkway. We were there on a mildly wet evening, and somehow that made the experience even better.
