Went up to the Tower with the Guide. Other than sparsely information about the architectural Style was not provided. 14 Euro/4200 Ft. for just 5 Min. for standing around with an uncommunicative guide is just not worth the money.

Went to see the World Press Photo Exhibition 2018 which was at this museum. It was an excellent exhibition of great photos. Glad we made the effort.

We planned our day around a visit to this museum. Got there to find it's closed until 2020 - the website is still showing it is open or we could have saved the cab fare to somewhere else. Very disappointed.

I would recommend to pay a visit to this museum. You can learn a great deal of things from its collection. The building itself is very interesting from an architectural point of view.

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
