Visiting Parliament building, shoes on river bank are close. Direction to shoes could be improved. Interesting to see and what they stand for

We had read about this monument and wanted to go visit. As you walk along the river bank you know when your nearing this as suddenly there are lots of people but it is still quiet and tranquil. People just seemed to be showing respect,...More

It’s only a small monument but it’s important to go! It’s very moving and it’s symbolic that it sits right outside parliament. People have laid down ribbon and candles which I understand is meant to pay homage but it does ruin it slightly. But it’s...More

This is across from Castle Hill vicinity with a lovely view along the Danube, but taking a moment of silence to honor these brave souls where everyone was eerily quiet and thoughtful added to the poignancy of the moment.

These shoes are on the banks of the river, not far from the parliament building. Really makes you think....

There shoes are very clever and rather poignant but people had filled them with rubbish and tied things on them which I thought was sacrilege.

Along the River Danube. The shoes are an iconic sight with so many people stopping to take pictures. This is just one of many sights in this beautiful city that we have fallen in love with.

No need to explain: for what this memorial is standing. It can be compared only to Yad Vashem, to the Auswitz Museum, to the Normandy American War Cemetary - snd surely to some others, I have not seen yet. Shocking impression- the world may not...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I think that the Budapest Card is good value if you are going to do a lot of the included museums/activities in a short time and travel on public transport all the time. Budapest is a very walkable city. And public transport... More
